Conclusion to "Once Upon Another Time" plus another (complete!) story

The End.

(In all honesty, I couldn't keep track of the princesses' names and I'm not sure Addy could either.  She officially declared the story finished and done a few weeks ago.)

The newest tale goes like this:

Once upon a time there were 3 princesses and a prince.  The prince had icky, sticky fingers because he had been eating something and got it all over his hands--yuck!  They found a big scary dragon, who huffed and puffed like The Big Bad Wolf and blew them away.  Then the dragon went to see a scary witch.  The princesses and the prince climbed a tree so they could hide and see what was going on.  The witch waved her wand in a circle and that made the dragon go away.  Everyone lived happily ever after.  The End.

The stocking are to be hung where exactly?

According to the local preschooler, we need to build a brick wall in the living room so that we can add a fireplace so that there can be places for the stockings to hang so that Santa can bring us our presents on Christmas morning.  I promised her that there is, in fact, no absolute necessity of a fireplace or even a chimney in order for Santa to stop by.  Good behavior, however, is definitely still required.

Speaking of stockings, Little Sister and I found ourselves with an unplanned day off together this week, so we made a stocking for her.  I really should have gotten Addy's out to use for a template, because the new one is a bit smaller.

Oops.  Good thing Santa is happy to leave things outside the stocking if they don't fit.
