While hanging the stockings this year the kids got way into playing with the bells at the bottom. Not wanting to be a jingle bell party pooper, but also wanting to keep our hand knit (by my friend’s mom) stockings nice, I made the kids their own jingle bell necklaces. I used some bells and buttons I had on hand and made a festive little necklace. It was so nice listening to little feet patter through the house along with the slightly ringing jingle jingle. We’ve not been able to find Caleb’s since that day and just yesterday Alice’s broke while we were at the doctor’s office. Guess I need something stronger than thin ribbon to keep them together. (any suggestions Katie?) They’ve been a fun thing to wear and play the last several weeks.
