I got a head start on making my thank you note for this year's Christmas gifts. This adorable image is from Penny Black. I ordered it from PB Stamps. He has the best prices and great customer service and his shipping is very reasonable. This set is called Kindness.
I really enjoyed this blog candy. It was fun to read what special memories you all have of Christmas gone by. It seems like most of the special gifts came from the heart and not from the store. I think those are ones that make a holiday memorable. I wanted to share with you my favorite Christmas gift. At the time it didn't mean nearly as much as it does now.
I am the oldest of 8 children. When I was 13 we adopted a family of 4. My mom made us each a stocking for Christmas one year. You can see them hanging here from the mantle. She must have spent hours working on these. She loved homemade gifts. This picture is of the first grandkids taken about 19 years ago. I miss my mom so much this time of year. The two little girls on the right are my oldest daughters.
Fast forward to this year. Here is a picture of the girls and our son. He is so spoiled.
My son never got to meet his grandma but I still have that special stocking. It hangs from my mantle to remind me of all the great memories we made over the years.
Now on to the blog candy winner....
