Hung by the chimney with care

Conversation as I upacked the stockings:

“What are those BIG socks, Mommy?” asked by my 3yr old daughter.

“These are our Christmas stockings.” I answered.

“Oh, Nooooooo. I don’t want to wear those on Christmas.”

Here I thought we’d all go nude except for the one one big sock and perhaps a few strategically placed ornaments. My plans foiled again.

    I bet that your husband would like that for a Christmas present. I agree with your daughter though, stockings as a fashion statement are a no-no. (She cracks me up!)

  2. Woman with Kids says:

    …now that would certainly make an interesting christmas picture, wouldn’t it?

  3. Lisa says:

  9. GraceD says:

    The kid is absolutely right. Who would wear such boxy, awkward hose?

    In other news, you out-Martha Martha in the festive decor of your mantle.

  10. meritt says:

    So… how come you were blessed with such awesome decorating genes and the rest of us weren’t? LOL.

    I love the things you are doing to your home. You are doing a great job. You just have that knack.

  11. Erika says:

    Were lucky we have a tree. poorly decorated at that. they just dont make plastic ornaments anymore :( plus dh cut the tree down from our front yard. yup its a small hella prickly tree. its huge tho,. but you cant touch it. its like razors and I aint even kidding!!

    and my daughter wants to know why the grown ups don’t get stockings at your house? maybe then you could get mini-liquor bottles from Santa!
