Header Challenge - Christmas preparations

 
Twas the week before Christmas and all through the house,
Boxes have been put away and there's space to walk.
 
 Marianne has decorated the mantle and over the TV,

 
  
While I finished the railing and the tree.
 

 Charlie Brown's tree is on a kitchen counter,
While Karma Kitty watches from above the buffet.
 
 
 The presents have been wrapped, except for one or two
and sent by post to places afar. There's Jersey and Texas,
Phoenix, West Virginia, Colorado and Carolina too.
 
We will spend a quiet Christmas at home this year
though long distance calls we expect to hear.
 
The Christmas puzzle has been retrieved
And I expect we will try to assemble it Christmas eve.

Neat Header and pictures too,
While expectations of Christmas grew,
Lews hoping to take the Gold,
As his Header and poetry unfold.

Your home looks warm and inviting. To my family's dismay, I am a minimalist. I like to SEE decorations, but I don't like to put them up or take them down. Lew, Merry Christmas from this here Grinch.
