I had to do this per force. When we left Arizona I think I was deranged in thinking I didn't need to bring all my Christmas boxes with me. Instead I packed most of it in long term storage...I had forgotten all about that until I opened up the Christmas boxes I did bring and found a few piddly items...
-two wall hangings
-reindeer stocking hangers.
And that was it. No garland...no lights...no decorations...
And with two extra kids coming and one new one living with us unexpectedly...no stockings!
I went to the PX to find some and they had a green stocking that said, "I love my cat." and a single white stocking that wasn't really my style anyway. So, I went to a German store and found some beautiful stockings...for $20-35 euro each...thats like spending $35-50 dollars on each stocking. I got better places to put that kind of money.
So, I got creative and made them.
Ok...very funny...you can get up off the floor now. I'm insanely proud of them. Yes, they are a little lopsided, but overall I think I did a pretty great job.
