My mom has stockings at her house; one for each of us. They’re red and white with sparkles that spell out our name. Mine is falling apart, but I love it anyway. I hope she never throws it away.
Because the stocking tradition was at her house, Cat, 007, Papa and I didn’t have one here.
Until last year.
I saw this cute pin that showed me how to make stockings out of old sweaters.
Sweaters are pretty, but they’re not really “us”.
You know what is us?
With a little bit of lace.
Ok, that’s just me.
I made Papa’s out of just plain plaid.
007 wanted his made out of denim.
Cat tried her hand with an old sweatshirt and some pretty ribbon.
We hung them underneath our Days Until sign.
I took this picture a few days ago because now there are only
8 days until Christmas.
