'Twas the Week of Christmas


'Twas the week of Christmas 
in the Valley of the Sun
And the Erbs were all gathered
for tradition and fun

The air was warm
the sun was bright
The house adorned 
with holiday light

Grandpa Jack bought toy cars
which we drove to the park
Grandma D baked her pies
and we stayed up past dark

Presents, stockings, and toys
There was so much to do
We make cookies for Santa
We read from Luke II

The children were spoiled
And loved, and adored
Football was played
And touchdowns were scored 

And so we exclaimed
as we drove out of sight
That Christmas in Arizona 
was such a delight!
