Twas The Night Before Christmas - Twilight Quilters style

Twas day turned to Twilight and all through the threads,
not one quilter TM was ready for bed,
Our clothes were all laid out with care,
in hopes that we'd slip out to New Moon knowing Edward would be there.
Hurrying and gathering our kerchiefs and caps,
last on our mind was a long winters nap.
When out in the driveway there arose such a clatter,
the neighbors came out to see what was the matter.
And what to our wondering eyes did appear,
but a shiny silver Volvo to take us there!
With a handsome hunk driver so lively and quick,
we knew it a moment it wasn't St. Nick!

More rapid than eagles the vampires they came,
And our driver hummed and called them by name,
Carlisle and Esme, Rosalie and Emmet, and Alice and Jasper will meet us in minutes,
Away from the porch and away from the wall,
They'll all be at the theater in the mall!

"As dry leaves that before the wild hurricane fly",
It felt as though the Volvo would take to the sky
So away we went and away we flew,
With the car full of quilting friends, and well you know who!
And then in a twinkling we heard a sound,
The prancing and pawing of a wolf around,
I opened the window and put out my head,
Poor Jacob was running alongside with dread,

Edward was dressed in designer wear,
And so would his family when we got there,
A ring box for Bella he held in his pocket back,
Meanwhile Jacob was concentrating on his pack.

Once at the theater the Volvo came to a stop,
He parked where he wanted and just hissed at the cop,
We all got out just in time to see,
As he stood in the forest asking Bella his wife to be.

Back to the car with no driver so quick,
We saw immediately we'd been tricked, :rolf:
No Volvo anywhere, just the family car in site,
With a ticket on the windshield, oh that's a big bite!

We sprang to grab the ticket with a naughty whistle,
This was a thud in our hearts, not the down of a thistle,
But we exclaimed as we drove out of site,
Merry Christmas to all and to all a New Moon night!
