Growing up my mom always had us four children a stocking. I remember them hanging on the wall behind the tree because we did not have a fireplace. Early on Christmas morning we would dig into our stockings that had been stuffed with oranges, apples, nuts, candycanes, novelty candy, candy cane tubes of generic M&M's and toothbrushes and much much more. Well, we wanted to get the kids a stocking as well. So, when our friend Karen came for a visit she brought us all new stockings. Little did we know.....that not one of these kids had EVER had a stocking. They were so excited that this was actually going to be theirs and that they could put their name on it. It is going to be so much fun filling them all on Christmas Eve.
