The Stockings Were Hung
Many years ago, Mama G made Granny Square Christmas stockings like these for all of her children and grandchildren. Lanier has five children and 11 grandchildren( with two more due in the spring) so she has quite the collection of stockings at her house. Since Mama G went to heaven, Lanier's daughter in law, Meredith, has taken up the job of crocheting the stockings for new members of the Memphis Grimm family.
It just makes me smile when I see her fireplace and all those stockings. Each stocking represents a blessing in our growing extended family. Lee and Lanier may have to get another fireplace if they keep having more grandchildren!!
