Pixie Stockings

When Mildred and I were first married, as decorations for one of our very first Christmases we got six miniature felt Christmas stockings that we hung on the tree.

I got this idea of putting a little piece of candy in the one that was "hers". When she asked about it the next day, I told her the Christmas Pixies must have left it :)

We continued that tradition until the kids left and Mildred passed away.

I spent the 2008 Christmas season first in Houston and last in Utah, and the kids with kids have kept the tradition alive.

Wow, I always thought that was a tradition mom brought to the family. Interesting. :) Thanks for sharing!

I know this is way late in saying (I'm just now catching up on your blog :P )Anyway, I just wanted to let you know that even though I'm not married and don't have kids, I did it with my roommates one year--I guess it was the first year that I didn't go home for christmas. :)
