My wonderful father-in-law Ron Pennington fills stockings for each of us at Christmas. We look forward to Christmas mornings at his house where we open them and the rest of our gifts to each other. He gathers eclectic stuff year-round for his stockings, and we never know what we will pull out of them!!! One thing is for certain, they make us smile. One Christmas he was uncertain which of our daughters would show up with dates, and he wanted to be prepared. We all laughed when we read the names on a couple of the stockings – Boyfriend 1, Boyfriend 2, Boyfriend 3 – Ron never wants anyone to be left out or feel unwelcome! Here is a layout of our son Chris grinning at the small bottle of Scope mouthwash that he pulled out of his stocking Christmas 2010. I used one of Shimelle’s Scrapbook Starting Points for this layout, and used Bird is the Word’s prompt SMILE. Paper used is Basic Grey Nordic Holiday line.
