Get excited readers! My Christmas fever is in full swing!!! I’m going to be posting all sorts of Christmas recipes, activities, decorations, etc. in the next few weeks. My first project is to make stockings for Mr. Fancy Pants and I for our first Christmas together. We both have stockings at our parents’ houses, but I wanted us to have our own. My mom and dad made their stockings when they first got married. My dad was in medical school and the stitching was good practice for his surgery rotations. Mr. Fancy Pants and I don’t have quite the same situation, although Mr. Fancy Pants can sew on a button, so I assumed the job of stocking creator.
