Whoo hoo!

Found the stockings!!!




They were in a box, under a box, under a box - of course! My mom knitted mine and Andy's when we were married 5 years ago. Then she made them for the girls when they were born. She has made them for cousin's, family friends, etc. The very first one she made was for ME when I was a baby. I thought that was the one I had, but she has it at her house. I forgot she made me a new one so it would match Andy's better.

Hope this week is going well for everyone - it seems blogging is slow, as it should be. Spend the week with your families, and enjoy the festivities!

Get out of here!! Those are beautiful and special, the girls will treasure those for many years to come. So glad you found them in the box under the box under the box...You would have been said, not to mention the family if you had not found them.

Your Mom made four of those lovely stockings for our four lovely daughters. I have them hanging on the fireplace in our bedroom to keep my daughters close to my heart. I am having a ROUGH time this year with Erin in Singapore!
