Well, when we decorated the house for Christmas just over a week ago, I got to hang those stockings up for the first time! I think that I was clearly the most excited of the five of us as I stood there looking at them, and that's saying something 'cause the kids were jumping up and down as the stockings went onto their little hooks.
How fun...I can hardly wait to fill 'em up!
P.S. A number of years ago, my Mom painted the beautiful wooden carollers that you can see on the mantle amongst the garland.
