Chris and I have had ugly $.99 stockings since we've been married. Last year, I made Ceiba a fun stocking for the mantle. This year, Chris designed and I sewed new ones for the rest of us.
Got 'em finished tonight... nothing like being down to the wire for Christmas. 

We can't help but smile when we see them!
What did you ask? 
Why four?
Ohhh... did I fail to mention.
We are EXPECTING A BABY in June!!!!!!!!!! 
Merry Christmas to us :)


  1. Ack! The jig is up! The secret's out!


    Anyway, Mr. Matt would be terribly jealous of that Penguin one if he knew it existed... he'a a penguin fan. You must have mad sewing skillz. Whose is whose?

  2. Chris is the narwhal whale, I'm the reindeer, Ceiba is the penguin and baby is the polar bear. As for the sewing....don't look too close. I'm functional, but not fancy.

    Maybe when Ceiba's back in school, we'll have to have a sewing day so you can make Matt a penguin one... could be his Valentine's gift :)

  3. I was doing that math, going...hmm, maybe they have a dog, unless??
    Then I saw it. Many congratulations! What wonderful news! happy holidays!

  4. Congrats on the baby! And I love the stockings. So fun.

  5. Oh, big congratulations to you. And you could sell those stockings - they are adorable.

  6. Those are great stockings - and very *congratulations* on the baby!!

  7. Okay, totally need that stocking pattern and congrats (again), so happy for you guys!!

  8. Congratulations!! What a blessing! C will make a great big sister!!

  9. Congratulations! And a very clever way to announce it.

  10. Congratulations to you all! Try to enjoy being pregnant...it's pretty amazing. ;)
