Christmas Stockings And My Favorite Ornament

I thought I had lost them in the move to El Paso, it was two weeks until Christmas, and I was really upset, "Did I throw them away in the move?" I thought I had looked everywhere and could not find my kids Christmas stockings. How do I explain to my kids I may have thrown them away.
I needed to find other stockings for my kids Christmas but how would I find something my kids would like as much as the others? I went shopping and things were too expensive to buy right after a move, so with wondering how I would replace the stockings I thought to crotchet them would be the fastest substitutes. I never made a stocking before so there were several mistakes and I had to do them over and over.

I had to make five stockings quick. I worked at a call center so I was able to crotchet all day while I answered calls. People kept trying to buy them from me and I said no every time. It was later that Ralph found the Christmas stockings and now I display both sets each year.I display the ones I made on a plate rack that I hang on it's side. This year I bought stocking holders for the original set. 

And now...
My favorite Christmas ornament!
The prettiest shoe I have ever seen I would love to wear something like that but it would only work in a Cinderella world just like glass slippers.

Thank you for visiting my Christmas holiday posts. Merry Christmas.
