Christmas Eve Mom, Dad, Katy and Tom visited for a short while during the day.
Mom delivered a beautiful stocking she made for Sophie, made from vintage linens with a hand-embroidered tree on front. There are three charms on it—a star at the top, a heart at the bottom, and a single silver leaf hanging from a branch. As we learn more about what Sophie likes and the type of person she becomes, we’ll add charms to the stocking. (Thanks, Mom.)
Before they left, Sophie had a staring contest with Tom …
… and played with Nini’s hair.
“The stockings were hung by the chimney with care,
In hopes that St. Nicholas soon would be there.” —Clement Clarke Moore
