Bitsy's godmother LeAnn made a crossed stitched stocking for K and one for Tiger years ago. LeAnn's son Patrick was on my husband's soccer team in Wisconsin when we were first married and we sort of adopted him as a little brother. So when we moved back east we'd fly him out to visit. He came a few times for Christmas break and one year his mother sent him with the stockings for K and Tiger... and then we added Dragon and LeAnn made another stocking. (she had no idea what she was getting into with this tradition...) And then MLyons, and then Bitsy and most recently the Little Hawk... I have come to believe we announce that we are expecting and LeAnn heads out to the store for another stocking pattern/kit.

They are the first things we put out when we decorate. And the last things to come down. Aren't they amazing? Every year these beautiful stockings remind me how lucky I am; lucky in family and lucky in friends.
