On the Sixth Day of Christmas I posted on my Blog ...

Six homemade stockings

Five birthday guests
Four excited children
Three gifts from Shauna
Two dozen cookies,
and a pretty decorated Christmas tree.

The other "Mina's Christmases" picture this post will paint for you has not to do with the photo, but the time.  I have set all of these posts to publish at 7 am.  Some are missing photos as events are on-going, but I have been able to get them all ready by publish time.  Not the stockings.  I taped them up (because I need to buy hooks), shot them and uploaded the pictures the minute they were finished.  (And these were pretty sloppily done by my standards--thank goodness the photo hides much of that.)  It will be 1:40 by the time I post.

I spend all season, and all year for that matter, procrastinating.  I always want to have everything ready to go ahead of time.  But it almost never happens.  The only time I was ready for Christmas early was the year I was scheduled to be induced on Dec 23rd.  The sad fact is that if I had not decided to post about our stockings, they would remain yet unsewn.

Tomorrow's post is scheduled to publish at 9 pm.  That is not because of procrastination, but because of the time of the event I will be posting about.  Just so you know...

I'm posting about stockings tomorrow, but mine will be laying on the ground in the picture because I haven't even put mine up yet. Procrastination is my middle name!

I love homemade stockings. We only have one. It's 1/2 way done! And, I have been taping up all our stockings because you can't see the tape and I don't have to worry about little children pulling on the stocking and pulling the heavy decorative stocking hook down on their head. How lovely your stockings are.

Erin, you aren't a procrastinator, you are a tradition creator. Don't put them up till Christmas Eve and call it "Tradition" then nobody can argue with you!

I love those. My grandmother made stockings for my husband and three of my kids before she passed away. My youngest got gypped.

My wife also makes all of our stockings. Each one is unique so that we all know who's who's.
