The Stockings are hung.....


on the fireplace with care in hopes that St. Nick soon would be here!!!...LOL...Or at least a few of his elves to help wrap!!...Yes, I'm one of these late wrappers since I didn't want to give Luke a reason to prowl around the tree...And since we watched 2 movies we didn't get started til after 2:00 and that would be in the AM....ha!ha!...So I filled stockings and Tim started wrapping while we talked about gifts we got as children..That was fun walking down memory lane.....We finished at 3:17....

So the house is quiet and all are in bed..Which is where I'm fixing to lay my head.....Merry Christmas!!
~~hugs,Jen

Jen what a wonderful peaceful fun vision and memory.

We just filled our kids stockings this morning being they won't be here till 1:00 today so we had lots of time but I was wrapping ALL gifts last night from 6 till 10:30 - not sure why I save them till last but it's always been that way.
Have a wonderful day with family Jen.
Hugs to you dear friend.

I remember those days, of late night wrapping.
I hope you and your family have a wonderful Christmas and blessings throughout the coming year.

Merry Christmas Jen! Your fireplace and stockings are really adorable and darling. It looks like you hand made those stockings with love. :) Everything is so prim and cute.

Yes, I confess too that I was up late wrapping presents. My parents and sister came to our home this year and so we too got to talking and didn't get to be until about 4:00 or maybe 4:30am. Shame on me for not having them finished when they got here. But, it was a blessing to get and talk with my sister just like old times. She is 14 years younger than myself and I can remember wrapping her gifts late on Christmas Eve as well many times. She was the curious one, I wasn't. :)

I hope that you had a blessed day and that Christ filled your lives with many blessings and hope for the days to come.

Blessings and perfect prims,
Stacey
