'Twas the week after Christmas....and check out this house!

'Twas the week after Christmas, and all through the house
Nothing would fit me, not even a blouse.
The cookies I'd nibbled, the eggnog I'd taste
At the holiday parties had gone to my waist.

When I got on the scales there arose such a number!
When I walked to the store (less a walk than a lumber).
I'd remember the marvelous meals I'd prepared;
The gravies and sauces and beef nicely rared,

The wine and the rum balls, the bread and the cheese
And the way I'd never said, "No thank you, please."

As I dressed myself in my husband's old shirt
And prepared once again to do battle with dirt

I said to myself, as I only can
"You can't spend a winter disguised as a man!"

So away with the last of the sour cream dip,
Get rid of the fruit cake, every cracker and chip

Every last bit of food that I like must be banished
"Till all the additional ounces have vanished.

I won't have a cookie - not even a lick.
I'll want only to chew on a long celery stick.

I won't have hot biscuits, or corn bread, or pie,
I'll munch on a carrot and quietly cry.

I'm hungry, I'm lonesome, and life is a bore
But isn't that what January is for?

Unable to giggle, no longer a riot.
Happy New Year to all and to all a good diet!

You have to see this to believe it! All 6 videos are of the same house...
but they have lights and music computer programmed to 6 different presentations!
Quite an interesting and spectacular display. I can assure you, I wouldn't want to
be paying his electrical bill!! I'm sure it would cover a trip to China and back!

Once you're on the site click the "Full" button (and turn up your sound and turn down your lights)

The Holdmans Christmas house in Pleasant Grove, Utah (so cool). The website got so big they broke it up into six (6) sparate YouTube sites for you.
