Christmas Stockings

We finished up all our Christmas shopping today. We were weary after lunch but we ran by the house, had a frappachino, kicked back for a few minutes and then we were one the road again. We finished up the last gift around 5 p.m. and we are in for the night.
I got a couple of last minute things for Jilda in the mail today for her Christmas Stocking. We both have Yuletide stockings and they are quite beautiful. Mine has a snowman on it and Jilda's has an Angel holding a dove. They look like antiques....actually they probably are considered antiques now.
But we have enjoyed the stockings so much that we have given one to all the kids in our family. We order them from Lands End and have the names embroidered on them. It's a gift that they can hold on to for the rest of their lives and each year as they unpack their Christmas decorations, hopefully they will remember us.
When our niece Samantha was about seven years old, she often stayed with us while her parents worked. And each year as Christmas approached she would always remind me "don't forget the stocking stuffers."
We had two new stockings to buy this year. Daisy, who is my nephew Jame's daughter, and our great niece Casey had a child today - Payton Elizabeth. They will have their new stockings by Christmas.
