The Stockings Were Hung ....

The stockings were hung by the chimney with care ... I love this poem!

This is the mantle and huge fat tree in our family room.  This is where we spend our time watching television or at the computer desk.

The tree is loaded with ornaments I have made over the years.  We bought this tree in 1983 the year we built our house.  Everyone thinks it is real!  It is so well made and soo full.  It is not pre-lit so I have to string the hundreds of light on it!

Looking up to the picture above the fireplace.  I use colored lights in this room and lots of them! 

All the stockings are hung with the exception of my SIL's ... ooops! 
Actually I am hand stitching it and did not get it completed.  Maybe after Christmas!

I wish you all a Merry Christmas!
