And the stockings were hung on the chimney with care…

in hopes that St. Nicholas soon would be there!

*Oh the anticipation!*

Actually, I believe that I enjoy the season more than the actual day.  Of course the day is wonderful, but I love having a continuous celebration; Thanksgiving through Christmas is such a joyful time for me!  An extended time to really focus on thanking God for…everything.

(And aren’t the stockings pretty?  Mom made them; I uncovered an old, beautiful coverlet, but it was too small for any of our beds.  So mom and I are  putting it to good use, and will spread the “pretty” around.  Stockings, scarf, maybe a throw or two.  Creating is so much fun!)
