This year I have been procrastinating about putting up our Christmas tree. I just haven't been able to get in the right frame of mind to enjoy this special holiday. As I was decorating I was able to get into the spirit a little. Each of the ornaments on this tree have either been given to my children or have been made by them.
I knitted each of these stockings for my kids when they were small. The pattern was in an old McCall's holiday magazine that I can no longer find. I did realize that I should make a runner for the mantle before next year.
This is the oldest ornament on the tree. It was given to my oldest boy for his first Christmas by his grandmother.
