Re-establishing traditions...

This Christmas is a special one for us. It is Seths´ first Christmas... sort of... since he was born December 27th, he had a little of it last year... It is also the first time we are celebrating Christmas ( Hanukkah, would John maybe say ? ) in our little family... with Christmas dinner and all that... We would like our X-mas to be nice and tasseled with magic, but most important; let´s have it without stress this year...

I made This "Christmas stocking" for Seth a little late... Lucky me, he doesn't know the calendar yet. I wanted to make something he can have trough whole his childhood and it can be used for either 24 gifts or maybe just 4 ( a danish advent tradition, 24 days or 4 Sundays before the X-mas )... I found the little embroidered bell string from a 2nd hand shop, and I liked the colours. Running out of time, between 5am and 7am it was made and ready.

Oh yes, as you can see, I still haven't painted that bed... I will get to that soon... but HOW... Where could he take his nap while... Just can't figure out the logistics of this project... I guess I should have painted it before the smaller bed was moved out... hmmmmm...

It is so special when you get to start the traditions in a little family.
I remember the first Christmas with our oldest child Anne-Sophie (15). It was so funny and heartwarming to see her reactions while exploring something new.
At Christmas eve her grandparents bought her a BIG box of Duplo and all night she crawled up and down -up and down - the box ...

Did I say this already? I think I did, but again: I really really like what you do for your son. So much love and beauty in these things.

i like the danish version.much simpler and easier for all.

the stocking is wonderful. I used to place a surprise bag in the cot of my children so when they woke in the mornings they had toys and books to play with before calling out for us.

the stitching is beautiful.
