Merry and Bright

Vintage Loomer Christmas photo... maybe 1980?
My great grandmother made all those stockings Each one had our names embroidered at the top. (thank you Aunt Bonny for sending me this!)
My family has flown and driven in, (Mom & Paul, Dad & Amy, and Becca) and we are all cozied up in the Carmona's house (we are house sitting) together tonight. I am happy as a clam to have them close by and to be eating good food near a Christmas tree.

Tacos are on the menu for dinner tonight, and then after the kiddos fall asleep I need to whip up two stockings for them. I am thinking of using some shrunken (felted) wool sweaters. There is no way they will be as nice as my great grandmother's, but hopefully they will look cute enough for Santa to want to fill them ;)

I hope wherever you are that you also are feeling loved and joyful on this Christmas Eve!

Merry Christmas, KK! I was going to make stockings out of felted sweaters tonight too, but ran out of steam so I just used one of Dave's enormous wool socks!
