The stockings are hung by the chimney with care.....



 Last weekend I told Amber and Nick that I'm didn't put up their stockings.  Personally, I thought they were 'over' that...but Amber said "grandma you have to put our stockings up"...so, grandma did and I filled them.  They are hung downstairs on the fireplace..no stockings on the fireplace upstairs!  The beige one is Grandpa's and the red checked one is for the dogs...well, it does say 'dogs'!

Well, Christmas Eve is here and this grandma is ready!   I got most of my dishes ready yesterday (after I packed the back seat of the SUV with my art/sewing supplies).

Kids will be here around 4 today and I can't wait!!  I love this night except for saying goodbye to them for four months!  Amber and I always cry!!  We even cried last weekend just talking about it!
 I feel like we just got back from Florida and, now, here we are getting ready to leave on Sunday!   But the time will go by fast in Florida...usually January is the slow month then it's BAM! Time to come home!
Hope everyone has a wonderful Christmas Eve with family and/or friends or just quiet time to reflect on the year and what Christmas really means!
