They say it's better to give than to receive, but I think it's pretty darn nice to get something made with love by the hands of someone else. We got a few things along those lines this year.
The boys, below, in their Grammie Jammies, a version of which my mom has sent every Christmas since they were small enough to fit into (and tolerate) drawstring nightgowns:
and C's, in new slippers knitted by my mom.
And a new ornament,
and some cars,
all made by my dad.
It's fun having crafty people in the family.
