Deck the Halls

  Not all of the little men made the trip from storage this year.

But, just enough to be festive are lined up to watch the festivities. 

The stockings are hung....and the sorting caps* are laid out on the hearth.
These are the kids' first stockings....and yes, I still have them.  I cross stitched them on small red gingham.  And the sorting caps are for our Hogwarts Yule Ball that we'll be having Christmas night.

I started putting the goodies out on the table.  I found the snowman fruit basket at my downstairs door this morning.  Thank you, FedEx.  I guess you delivered it last night, but you didn't ring the bell.  At least you didn't throw it at the house.  It is a gift from my former neighbors in New Mexico.  I would guess they are snowed in about now.  I LOVE tangerines...especially at Christmas!!!!

And, Rudy has been admonishing me for not getting this rug done....all I lack is the header!  But, somehow weaving has taken a back seat this last week.  My mystery project is drying downstairs, but it isn't finished.  I guess that's normal this time of the year.

  So, I'll get in gear, and make a quick trip to post office this morning.  I've got Christmas Eve services later today, and there's a couple of last minute items to pick up.
I hope you and yours have a very
Merry Christmas!!!!

I love your collection of nutcrackers. Wow, you have a lot. Do you know how many in all? Even the ones that were not lucky enough to get out of the box this year???
Hope that everybody had a Merry Christmas.
