Thank You, Aunt Susie!!!

Kyle’s Aunt Susan has an amazing talent: cross-stitching. She has meticulously stitched a Christmas stocking for each of my children. We received Edison’s in the mail last week. Holy cow. I love it! It’s beautiful. I can’t believe how many stitches are in it.  It’s hard for me to find words for what these stockings mean to me- they are a very special keepsake my children will have for a really, really long time.  See? Emotion has taken over my vocabulary! I can’t come up with anything other than “very special” and “really”!!!!  I love how each one is different and personalized. Ugh. They’re simply awesome!

I tried to get a picture of all three after we had them unpacked. 2 of my 3 children were cooperative. The 3rd was ready for bed, so this was the best picture I could get at the time. I’m hoping to get a nicer one to send to her!
