Twas the night before Christmas Eve

Twas the night before Christmas Eve when the house was left quiet,
Because dear husband thought we should have a change in our diet.
So off to a favorite Salem restaurant he took us to eat,
Then he drove to the Mission Mill Museum to give us a treat.
It was the very last night of "Magic at the Mill."
For Christmas festivities this sure fit the bill!
Every building and bush was covered with lights,
And there men in bright kilts playing on drums and on pipes!
There were crafts for the kids and a cool model train,
All at a historic woolen mill I would love to tour again.
At the end of our visit we looked through the shops.
While I was a bit disappointed that sheep were not tops,
We found a wonderful welcome sign to add to our place.
You'll see it when you visit; it will put a smile on your face.
I'll close now with photos of our wonderful night,
And say Merry Christmas to all; may you walk in God's light!
