We don't have stockings hanging, and we never really have. Spencer decided he wanted to sew his own, and wants all of us to sew our own. So we started last night cutting fabric and finding the right kind of needle and thread. He got started right away, until bedtime. This morning we woke up and wanted to finish right away. He was so proud of his work, and I was too! He is such a little artist. I love it.
