The Stockings Were Hung by the Chimney with Care - Speechless Sundays

 

The Stockings Were Hung

 

I may not be ready for Christmas but the house sure is.

 

The kids and hubby did a great job helping me get the house ready for Christmas over the weekend.

 

Now that the stockings are hung, we just have to wait for Santa to show up.

You are ahead of me in that part of the season, but at least most of my shopping is done.

Christine, The pic is so pretty, really sets the mood for Christmas! All my stuff is packed from moving and I feel I'll never ever find it. Downsized from 5000sf to 3000sf, and no room for anything. I'm ready to just wait till next year, LOL! I'm just ENJOYING all the pics AR members are sharing :)

Very nice, Christine!  I finally got mine decorated too.  Took a couple weeks - not that I have that much stuff, just doing it little at a time!

Brett - I would surely get the fireplace going if I were you.

Cheryl - I sympathize some what.  Of course, you could downsize to my 1500 sq. ft. and really go crazy ; )

Lauren  - The kids are convinced the house isn't ready until the presents are under the tree.

Todd - I'll have you know it did get down to the 30's one day last week ; )

Beside we have to find some way to make it feel like Christmas amongst the palm trees and the ocean.

DeeDee - There's nothing wrong with a little at a time.  It gives you time for other things.

Christine, Love you stockings!  And I love the traditions of this season.  It's nice to see you giving wonderful traditions to your sons.

Pat - It's so nice to have a fireplace mantle that allows us to hang the stockings and still have the fire.

We have a great time with many things, and my husband believes customs are important.

Oh, no! Someone's got a fire going with flammable Christmas stockings nearby and without the spark screen in place. I hope it's just a picture and not real!
