This is the first year that my parents will be staying with me for Christmas.  We have lived in the same city my entire life but they just moved to California so the holidays have been spent at my house lately.  

Ashley and I hung our stockings on the mantle and then said Mema and Papa need one too.  

I bought 2 inexpensive stockings at Target:

We decided to cut out letters with my felt that I use for roses.  Ashley drew the letters and started cutting:

She wanted to stitch the letters on the the cuff (mind you it was 9:00 at night on a school night)
She has my husbands sense of emotion (she really is happy but smiling on the inside)

When I told her she could use hot glue thats when she got excited and started gluing buttons.

Final Result:

My parents saw them on the mantle this evening and LOVED them.  

Happy Holidays!

Hi there, how sweet. I bet your parents love them, yes they do, I see above that they do. Sounds like you had fun making them also. Thanks so much for sharing. I have recently found your blog and am now following you, and will visit often. Please stop by my blog and perhaps you would like to follow me also. Have a wonderful day. Hugs, Chris
