‘Twas the night before Christmas and all through the house
Not a creature was stirring, not even a mouse.
For Carrie was bartending at a place we call DUBS,
Where one can get cold beer and some really great grub!
Jessie’s there, too, and much like Carrie you’ll find
She cooks, waits on tables, and makes all “tow the line”!
The two of them spend every spare moment there
Growing the business with responsibilities they share.
Now, Patty in her DUBS shirt stops by quite a lot
To work on the books and give hostessing a shot.
She also spends time, once a week, it is known
At the front desk of their church answering the phone.
While Lex in his golf cap looks forward to each day
That he can get out on the golf course to play!
He works hard at growing his own business also
A place that goes by a name he calls Latro.
The others aren’t nestled all snug in their beds.
Will lives in New York, works at Joe Allen’s instead.
He comes home to visit when time does allow
And sings Karaoke at DUBS for the crowd.
Little Cailyn has grown up and now goes to school
It’s first grade where she has a chance to be cool.
She loves taking dance class, jazz, tap and ballet.
She keeps us all on our toes every day!
Now Leigh, she has found her partner for life.
In September she became Nevin Brede’s wife.
So, the stockings that hang by our chimney here
Will just keep growing like our family, so dear.
While Santas may wear many hats
and spread the magic of Christmas,
may we never forget the true meaning of this holiday.
Wishing you God’s blessings in the New Year.
Love, The Wilkinsons
