This morning the elves were spotted hanging out around the newly hung stockings. Our bearded elf, Roderick was hanging by his folded arms, Henry the Moose was clinging to the fireplace screen, and Ralphie was sitting like a pro on the edge of the screen. The stocking s are handmade by me. They are reproductions of the stockings my dad’s mother made for him and his siblings. Sadly, she passed away when they were young. When I took sewing in High School I was able to do a project where I made copies of the stockings for my mother, brother, and myself. I’ve made countless more for other family members. They are not as fancy as a lot of the stockings out there but they are dear to us nonetheless.
