When G was born, my mom asked if I wanted to make his stocking or if I wanted her to do it. I don't know how to knit - I do plan on learning someday - I only know how to crochet for now. Either way, I've always liked the idea of my children's grandmother knitting their stockings, so I asked her to do it. I chose a Train for the front of his stocking and a Snowman on the back. These things are so cute and special and filled with love, they just make me so happy.
I've always wanted to learn how to knit, so someday I will be making the stockings for my grandchildren too. It is a Christmas tradition I want to make sure lives on in our family. There are many things we do each year with family that make Christmas fun and memorable. Just being with family in general is what fills my heart. But it's also the simple, little things like our precious "made with love" stockings that make Christmas special to me.
What are your favorite family Christmas family traditions? I would love to hear them!
