It is Joey's second Christmas and I finally have made him a stocking.
Eli's has lots of sequins that have been plucked off the year he was 2 - maybe someday I will get to sewing some back on.
Mine and Caroline's are very girly, but at least hers has doves on it. And Dave's will be renovated this next year. He has never liked it and says it doesn't look like Christmas and you can tell it really bothers him, seriously. So he will have a Christmas-y one for next year. I hope my kids keep them forever. I still have the one that my mom made for me, Eli thinks if I hang it I will get more goodies - maybe we'll try it.
Here is a holiday question for you. I saw on a blog (dandee designs) I follow that she does a certain Christmas tradition. The kids get 4 things from the parents: something they need, want, read and wear. I decided to try it. I can't tell you how much simpler it has made this Christmas. I might be one of the worst gift givers in the world and this has helped reign in my busy mind and settle it down to focus on these things. I highly suggest it. Back to my question: does Santa give your child the BEST gift or does the gift of honor come from you? Eli has only asked Santa for Pokemon cards. I have bought him something that he is going to love and frankly, want him to know it is from Dave and I. So, what do you do and why?
