Journaling says, "It is a Staley family tradition to see who can "fall asleep" the fastest on December 24th. Ever since I can remember, as our Christmas Eve festivities were nearing an end, my sisters and I would race to our rooms, put on pajamas, brush our teeth, and hop into bed. We knew it wouldn't be long before Mom and Dad came to check to see if we were sleeping. As soon as our heads hit our pillows, my sisters and I would have a snoring contest, trying to convince our parents that we were truly asleep so that Santa could come! Dad would always praise the loudest snorer as being the "goodest" girl and the one most ready for Santa's visit, and he would tickle us to try to wake us from our "slumber." We sisters grew older and are no longer at the Staley household for most Christmases, but our children will most definitely be subject to the same silly traditions we enjoyed growing up."
The fireplace and holly border are from Joys of the Season, and the stockings are from Christmas Cheer. The title is from Storybook and is cut at 1 1/4 inches.
