The tradition in our home is opening stockings individually when the kids rise (that is, they don’t need to wait till others get up, and no getting others up till after 6 am).
A special gift was left inside my stocking. Tabitha gave me this ornament with a note:
Mom and Dad, This house represents your amazing book, “Love in the House.” You guys really have made our house loving. Thanks for being great loving parents. Merry Christmas! Love, Tabitha.
Now onto the traditional gift opening. Love is the tradition I’m so glad to have alive in our home.
