The Stockings Were Hung

I'm so excited about these stockings I made for my little family! I went back and forth about whether or not I was going to take the time to make them. After looking online for some, I decided I would go ahead and give it a try because all the ones I loved were around twenty bucks and I didn't want to have to buy 5 or 6 at that price so all my future kids can have matching ones, too. So, I decided to go with these fabrics because I can always find more fabric that matches the style. I love the way they turned out (even though there are lots of little mistakes!). I'm going to go get our names emroidered on them, too, so I can't wait to see the finished products. I'm also making a little board that will say "The stockings were hung by the chimney with care" and it will have little hooks for the stockings along the bottom. We don't have a fire place or any where to hang them, so hopefully it will turn out cute. The stockings don't match my Christmas decorations at all this year since our tree is decked out in bright blue, green, pink, purple, and silver though. It looks more like a New Years tree than a Christmas tree, but I wanted Tim to have lots to look at this year. Pictures to come of the tree soon....maybe.

Yee-Haw, Cowboy!

A real cowboy gets back on his horse after falling off (or being bucked off in this case...)

We may be the worst parents in the world for laughing every time we watch this. I'm sure Tim will get a kick out of it in a few years, too. Love ya, buddy!
