Our Christmas tree would not be complete without these crocheted ornaments. They were made by my husband's grandmother and given to us when we were first married. Not only do we have ornaments, but we have stockings, decorations, and each of my children have at least 2 blankets....all made by their great-granny.
Granny passed away this year and this will be my husband's first Christmas without her. I know it is hard for him to look around and see so many reminders of her, but it is also very comforting and special to have these things made by her own two hands, that we will be able to pass down to our children. So even though she is not physically with us, her spirit lives on.
Merry Christmas Granny!
