Christmas Stockings

*UPDATE* My mom offered to purchase these stockings for the kids! So...with Tina's suggestion and Bethany's promo code (she sent via email) I saved my mom LOTS! So thanks girls! And THANKS mom!!

Original post:

You may be shocked to know that even though I've been married for eight years...and even though my oldest child is five...

I still do not have stockings for any of us...

But I promise to change that soon. I'd like to order these for the kids: one penguin - because Caleb said he liked that stocking, one fairy - for Sarah, and one elf - for Gabriel. Is it worth $5 per stocking to get their names on it? Or does anyone know someone in my area who could do that for me for less (umm...less meaning free preferably).


















Then I think I'll go to Wal-Mart and find something that matches (sort of) for me and Josh (something less pricey...even though the ones I listed are on sale).

I know it's a shame that poor Caleb, Sarah, and Gabriel have not had a stocking yet. Their lives have been so empty without one. I hope they have not experienced too much trauma. Hopefully the new stockings this year will fill the void they have had to endure.

;o)

We don't have any for our family, either.

Don't have it done there - take theirs and yours and Josh's to Ozark Mountain Embroidery - ours were 3.50 each + tax -
then they could all match and 17.50 for all 5......
(and I really like the people there - they do all the boys shirts for football, our Towing shirts and all our name stuff ;o) )

I want new stockings... I want more personalized ones, like you have found, than what we have! Maybe I will shop the after Christmas sales since we have some to use this year!

And you def want names on them!!!
