Stocking Stuffers (6) - Raccoons

Raucous Raccoons Christmas Eve
An adaptation of  "Santa Claus is 
Coming to Town" - written by me
You better watch out
You better not cry
You better not pout
I'm telling you why
Santa Claus is coming to town!

Where'd you get that egg?
Why won't you play nice?
Let go of his leg -
I won't tell you twice!!
Santa Claus is coming to town!

He knows if you are sleeping
Up soundly in the tree
He'll know if you are peeping
Don't make him count to three!
1... 2.... 

They're sleeping at last
Hopin' nobody shifts
Gotta be quiet and fast
Deliverin' the gifts!
Santa Claus is coming tonight!

Sometimes Christmas Eve is not easy.  The kids can be rambunctious or even raucous.
The excitement and anticipation can be too much for li'l systems to handle!

Sometimes it all you can do to get them through the day  without bouncing off the walls,
and it's another Oylmpic event altogether to get them tucked into bed for the night!

But parents are geniuses when it comes to trying to get the gifts under the tree on Christmas 
Eve night... What's the famous ratio for genius? 1% inspiration and 99% perspiration - 
Yep,  the sounds about right, when you're trying to outsmart a couple of rowdy young raccoons!   

So, whether your kids are as quiet as church mice 
or as loud as two monkeys fighting over a banana,
I hope your holidays are full of joy and anticipation!
