Backstory: My mom made each of us kids Christmas stockings with appliqued things. Once Dave joined the family I decided it was only right that he had a stocking too (even if his doesn't have a fancy cuff with embroidered name - maybe someday I'll add that).
What I learned: I don't remember. It was too long ago.
What I might try next time: Well, when we have kids, they'll get their own stockings too. I don't know what designs will be on them, but I like the tradition.
Final Thoughts: Dave's stocking is cuter than mine (just kidding, Mom!).
