Thanksgiving 2013

It was Jen's idea. I'd never made a Xmas stocking before. So, Jen handed me a big red sock with a tube of glue and silver and red glitter. I wasn't sure what to do. I was a deer in headlights. So, Jen kindly advised me to write Ruby's name and draw a Santa Claus with the glue. I did that the best I could and added a heart. Then, I poured silver glitter on her name and Santa and red glitter on the heart until it dried. I forgot about it until this morning when Ruby woke us up by sitting on top of us. I handed her the custom made Xmas stocking and her eyes popped as she ran to wake up her parents. We heard her say, "Look, I got a Ruby Santa Heart!" Then, she looked inside the sock and found a classic swirly lollipop and a stuffed rabbit toy (again, courtesy of Jen) and squealed like a 5-year old girl!
