The stockings were hung by the chimney with care…

In hopes that Miss Leah Destructo would not come near…

Luckily she lost interest before tearing them all down. Not a food related post at all, but I just had to share the stockings that my mother-in-law makes for each family member. Very time intensive but beautiful and such a treasure for our family!

  1. Cute picture!! I LOVE the bare feet and the cute stockings :-)

  2. Oh how cute, and those stockings are GORGEOUS!!! I love them : )

  3. Wow, amazing stockings! I bet those take a long time and a lot of love to make!

  4. ROFL! It has only been the last couple of years that I’ve been *mostly* able to relax about ornaments, decorations, stockings. Of course, one of my snowmen wise men just broke. So, nevermind.

    Very cute pics, though. LOVE Christmas!

  5. Those are lovely! And I love the picture of Leah. =) I think this is the first year I haven’t had clumps of ornaments on my tree–both girls have actually gotten the idea of spreading them out, finally. =P

  6. those are gorgeous Kristen! and i know how much work, sweat and tears go into making them – i have friends who make similar ones. Leah is a hoot and look at those little feetzies!!! but even with her back turned, i can feel the wheels turning . . . ‘how can i get up there . . . hmmmm . . . maybe . . .’ ROFL!!!

  7. Those are gorgeous stockings!! The picture Leah is too cute!! Mine has lost complete interest in the Christmas tree & stockings! Thanks goodness :)

  8. they are treasures! And beautiful ones at that! She does great work!

  9. Wow! Those Christmas stockings are beautiful! So intricate in detail – you probably see something new on each one every time you look at it.

  10. The stockings are amazing! You can’t get anything like that from the store. I remember when my own Leah (she’s 25 now) couldn’t wait to see if there was anything in her stocking. Thanks for sharing.

  11. I made Jacob’s stocking for my husband about 10 years ago (pre-kids)! Love it! Good luck keeping them hung :)

  12. My MIL makes the same type of stockings for us. They are so cute and have so much personality. I love taking them out every year and hanging them up, such fun! We have Pooh stockings.

  13. OMGoodness, those stockings are GORGEOUS!!!! And what a treasure to have forever! The little one is SO adorable!!!! XO, Pinky

  14. Darling photo!! And those stockings are beautiful!!

    Merry Christmas to you and yours, Kristen.

  15. Ha! Beautiful stockings, and I have a destruct-o-matic at my house, so I completely understand!

  16. I think your MIL needs to have a tutorial! :) They’re perfect!

  17. those are handmade?! stunning! there’s nothing like a personal stocking to really bring out the Christmas spirit :)

  18. What a cute picture. Those stocking are so elaborate and adorable!

  19. I was getting wistful looking at those stockings thinking of when my kids were little. You put in a lot of work there! But the cutest thing is sitting on the ground.

  20. What a cutie! The stockings are beautiful, too! You’re blog is making me hungry! 4 months in the hospital –home cooked food is just a memory. I’ll be dreaming of chicken & noodles tonite! ~Amy
