I've temporarily replaced Marguerite's door plate with the above stocking. I'm so happy that it survived that horrible flood and that it doesn't seem to be the worse for wear. My mom got it for Marguerite's first Christmas (she was just about 3 mos old then - you can see it in a couple of the images included in our 2006 Christmas ecard below). Mom also embroidered the "Midge*" (Marguerite's nickname) to personalize it. I was hoping to have it around for many more Christmases (all of them, in fact), so I was so relieved to find that it was okay after having the mud washed off it.
