When Mackenzie was born I made stockings for Britt, Jay and Mackenzie and my same dear friend embroidered the names on the stockings for me.
I have made all the stockings for all my family members. These are much older ones. We use these for Rich, Tim, myself and my mother!!
While on the topic of stockings. Every year I buy stockings for the children in my class and they decorate them to hang over the "fireplace" in hopes that Mrs. King Claus will fill them. Yes, I fill a stocking for every child in my class. Every year I put a book, snowman soup and reindeer food. This year they are also getting a 24 count box of crayons, a mini stapler, (thanks to the great sales this summer!) a fun book (coloring activities), chocolate Santa's (the mini ones), candy canes, chocolate bells, a beanie baby, coloring pages and if I get to the store in time a clementine!
We had snow last night and around 7:00 I opened my front door and took this picture. I love the snow!!! It just puts you in the spirit.
Since we were in the spirit last night we watched Rich's favorite Christmas movie, A Christmas Story and enjoyed a big bowl of popcorn!
This is what I woke up to this morning. Isn't it pretty. Oh, how I hope it stays until Christmas.
The "unofficial" measurement on the table on my deck says 8 inches of snow fell last night. Tim and Rich just had breakfast and they are headed out to shovel the driveway!
