|It's too hot !|
|I opened the box that Alice stored all that I needed |
to continue the tradition.
including the home made pattern she used in the 1950’s. The box is like a time capsule of Christmas.
|All the goodies I have to sew on Baby Jack's |
| No fancy pattern a plain paper bag made into |
a stocking pattern.
Earlier in the evening Alice had taken all the presents and put them in Santa’s bag. so it was so spot on in a reenactment. It was so embarrassingly funny in this conservative family to have such a light hearted tradition. Totally unexpected but really a great tradition. Well of course Megan wants the tradition to continue . Santa’s suit is hanging in our closet waiting for Grandpa Jack to continue a family tradition that is dear to my hubby’s family this Christmas Eve. I am sure I am not the only one with family traditions at Christmas. The torch has been passed to me and as I open the treasured Christmas stocking box I think of all of us women who love family and continue what our mothers or grandmothers started as we bridge time by continuing what they began so long ago.
