The Stockings Were Hung…

…by the chimney with care.


We have had our 3 and 3 matching stockings for several years now but this year Katie’s fiance is joining us for Christmas so I went on a quest to find #7 that would blend with the others. I knew finding a matching one would be a challenge. I think this one works fine. Finding an initial to put on it was another dead end because these felt letters couldn’t be found anywhere. I did find an A that was the right size. It’s not the stocking that counts…it’s what’s inside it that counts. (chuckle) We’re thrilled that the 7 of us can be here this year and enjoy Christmas Day together!

Photobucket replaced all my photos with ugly black and grey boxes and they are holding my photos hostage until I pay them lots of money. I’m slowly going through all my posts and trying to clean them up and replacing some photos. Such a bother.

    • Growing up we did not have a stocking tradition either, Karin. We started it sometime after we were married when our guys were little and it’s continued along the way.

  1. Beautiful. Now if that would have been me I would have ditched all the old ones and bought all new ones … that is if I was so inclined. But more to the point I might have just put up some smelly old socks I use daily and say you know what…it’s the thought that counts ROFLMAO!!! Happy Holidays to you and your family 🙂

  2. I’m so happy for you to have everyone under one roof this Christmas! I just saw Marg’s and Judy’s posts.. with many extentions to the family.. you are still at the beginning … the time will come when there won’t be enough room to hang all the stockings. Blessings as your family comes together.

  3. You did a great job finding a very close look-alike….much better than I have in the past! Many blessings for a wonderful Christmas….

  4. I know that you will so enjoy your family together. I can imagine how much fun you had searching for that special stocking.
    I would love to be a fly on your table this Christmas. I feel so blessed to have gotten to know you…
