Andrew's parents and sister have always made me feel like a part of the family. But this year is different. It's our first Christmas as a married couple. And yesterday, while baking Christmas cookies with his parents, I discovered something I didn't recognize hanging on their mantle... something AMAZING.
My very own stocking!
See, Andrew's family has very good taste in everything. Especially holiday decorations. And I've admired their Christmas stockings for years. Each family member has his/her own unique stocking, all by the same designer (Patience Brewster, Department 56) including Mr. and Mrs. Frog (see below), a Nutcracker, and Ballerina.
Now that I have the Pointsettia Lady stocking, I am OFFICIALLY 100% part of the family. If the marriage license wasn't enough confirmation, this sure is. :D
