And the stockings were hung on the porch trim with clips . . .
Before Grandma and Grandpa took down the Christmas decorations, I managed to take this shot of the porch. Last year the girls' stockings kept falling from the fireplace, as they were hanging by the tips of one of the candy canes wedged in the felt. This year, Grandma, Grandpa, and their dog Fala got stockings with their names on them too, and the family decided to hang them all up together where they can be noticed by the outside world. I didn't have regular Christmas tree hooks to give them, so they used red coated paper clips to hang them up.
