I just love that this stocking represents everyone in the family! Daddy (Dave) represented by Santa Claus loves poker-note the cards and die in his hands and on the table. Mommy (Joan) is represented by Mrs. Claus-she holds the large red sack of presents with more scattered around it and on the floor.
One of the girls is nick named “Birdie”-note the little birdie on the shelf holding the Santa Hat? “Come on Santa!” she seems to be saying, “You’ve got to get ready to go!”. Also on the shelf is a NY Yankies baseball cap-Daddy is a big fan, and a Wii remote-the whole family loves to play.
There is a window showing a wintry scene to set the Christmas mood-a tree with snow on the limbs and snow falling in the sky-and, what? A rainbow-another fun family reference! I can see the kids pointing and talking about the things that they like or represent them and everyone having fun talking about it! What else? A lacrosse stick, jacks (for nick name Jack Pack!), tennis shoes (mom and the girls like to run!), beans with one sprouting (nick name Bean!), a basketball, a camera, a pail, shovel and starfish to represent the seaside, an artists palette and brush, a toy sword, and a theater mask-oh what fun!
Joan, what a great keepsake for the whole family! Thank you so much for thinking of me for this fun project!
