I have frantically been working on this year's Christmas stockings to get them done in time and I have done it. I hope I still have time to finish up my other projects, too! My great aunt made them for all of us when we were each born, so the tradition started there, then my Mom took over and made them for the husbands and wives as we all married and then our children as they were all born, but with the births of great-grandchildren, she put her foot down and said that the next generation would each have to take over for their own grandchildren. I have made them for my grands, but I am the only one so far who has. I also got talked into making for my niece's son when he had his first Christmas four years ago. Well, she had a little girl this year also and I had to make two for my two new grandsons anyway, so I am surprising her with a stocking for little Ella as well. They take forever to make with all those little sequins and beads but are so pretty when they are done. What kind of traditions do all of you have?

Kathy, The stockings are BEAUTIFUL and a treasure for sure!! I love your tradition.....the only one we really have is my grandmother used to get each of the kids a Life Savers Story Book every year for Christmas....I carried that tradition on to both of my oldest will be 23 in March my youngest is 14...they both still expect to receive these every year I didn't and I've never heard the end of it!! LOL
