Need poem for uncle
 
I am making a mini scrapbook for my DH's brother of my children. I am having a hard time coming up with a cover. I thought maybe a poem would be nice, but can't find an appropriate poem Can anyone help me out?

Either about the nephews and nieces or about the uncle. See they don't know him too well, so I am looking for something lighthearted/funny.
KWIM?

I am putting in cute and funny pics of the children if that helps.

Anyone?????

TIA

Your nieces and nephews are we,
The kids who all start with C.
We wanted you to know,
How fast we really do grow!
Get off your feet and have a seat
Enjoy your special treat.

Ok so that is the best I could do at almost midnight.. I will keep thinking on it.

Come ladies, there has to be some creative thinkers out there..

Thought I would at least get a chuckle out of you.. :)

Still didn't sound TOO bad to me this morning after only a few hours of sleep.. Oh the darn catalogs are calling me..

mama26cs 06-29-2007 06:15 AM

That is very good! I agree not too bad for being so late ;)
I like the C thing. His name is Chris. LOL So I could do something with a C theme too! hum....

mama26cs 06-29-2007 06:19 AM

Catalogs??? What catalogs????
;)

Ok then.. HOw about this..

Hey, Uncle Chris,
Look at this.
We the children that start with C.
Have something we would like you to see.
It is a special gift just for you to look.
Mommy made this really cool scrapbook.

Hehehe

LOL that might work if I can get my daughter to write it for me! LOL

I wrote this with the image in my mind of cute and funny pictures of your kids: Maybe it will work....

Our Uncle is special, Our Uncle is dear.
We wish we could see you, we wish you were here.

We know if you were, we’d have fun everyday.
Spending time with our Uncle, we’d sure find a way!

But since you are there, and we are all here.
We give you this gift, with just one little fear…

We hope you’ll agree, it’s not easily done…
To act proper, and perfect and still have our fun.

Mom says we should try and we all do our best…
But the pictures here, show we all failed our test.

Our Mom made this gift to share our story with you.
When you visit this book you will laugh along too.

We’ll soon get together, one day you will find.
This book will prepare you and we won’t blow your mind!

Mothermark 06-29-2007 08:19 AM

In reading the poem...I was thinking this sentence sounds better for the last part of the poem....

We’ll soon get together, one day you will find.
This book has prepared you, we won’t blow your mind!

cookscrapstamp 06-29-2007 08:24 AM

Oh to be so poetic.. :) I wish I could have come up with more but my feable brain was strained to get out the attempts that I did! :) BUT I did know if I kept posting it would bump it up to the top for creative minds to chime in and help.

great uncle poems! we certainly have some "creative" minds around here! :D

mama26cs 07-05-2007 08:06 AM

well, I made the book and he got it last weekend. As men usually do, he looked at it, said it was nice and moved on LOL! I think he did really like it though 'cause he did o back and look at it again and then passed it around.

Thanks everyone!

Ok so inquiring minds what to know what you ended up putting on the cover!!

mama26cs 07-05-2007 11:17 AM

OOPS, sorry I forgot to add that :oops:

I ended up just putting Joy inside hodgepodge hardware on the cover and then a peom about joy on another page. I don't have the book with me right now and can't remember the exact words, but something about children bringing joy into our lives everyday. Something like that.

I am making another scrapbook for their other uncle and am going to use one of the uncle peoms on his.

Rest assured I have all the other poems tucked safely away in my inspiration journal for when I need them. 'Cause I KNOW I will need them.

LOL
