Hanging Christmas stockings

My husband Brian, our boys, and I want to wish you all a very Merry Christmas, or simply a happy holiday if you don't observe Christmas. My shopping is done and so is most of my wrapping. I'll be spending a lot of time today in the kitchen — my favorite room in the house. I've got Christmas breakfast to put together, and the food I'm taking to my sister-in-law's for dinner tomorrow night. 

It will probably be a little quiet around here on MNN today and tomorrow, but if you want to spend a little time looking around, visit our collection of gift ideas, decorating tips, recipes and all things Christmas.
