Another Christmas craft for you! We are getting closer to those dreaded holidays and you need to be ready. Time to whip out the needles and floss and make your family some traditional stockings for your special Santa moments.

The Christmas Husband
Wilson
1995

It is that time of year when all the holiday themed romances start getting some circulation action. Today’s choice seems to be a book mashup of Sleepless in Seattle and Christmas in Connecticut.
