Christmas Advent Calendar Blog Hop - Stockings, Sack or Something Else

I have decided to participate in Joann's Advent Calendar Blog Hop and I'm December 1st. To follow the hop you can go to her blog Serendipitous Stitching

I have chosen to post this sweet ornament I made for an exchange.

We live in Arizona in the winter. But, we have three beautiful grandchildren that we want to share Christmas with and so we fly home to Canada for the holidays.
Watching the sparkles in my grandchildren's eyes as they open their presents and laugh with delight is indeed "Magic".


 

 Since we don't arrive home until a few days before Christmas, my DIL Cindy takes care of the family stockings. She has a wonderful time filling stockings for my son Adam, grandsons Jackson and Hunter, and Leo and I. It is my son's responsibility to fill her stocking.
I love digging into my stocking to see what she comes up with each year. It is always fun.


I found this photo from 2008 when the boys were much smaller. You can see the stuffed stockings on the loveseat in the background!

I'm so happy you get to fly home for Christmas, Kathy--seeing the delight in your grandchildren's faces on Christmas morning must be worth every penny you spend on plane fare! Love your magical stitching, too!
