Late Barbara Bush was such a doting mother, grandmother, and even great-grandma! Though the former First Lady sadly passed away in April 2018, the Bush family still honors her in all possible ways.

Barbara Bush doesn't celebrate Christmas with her brood any longer, but she made sure to leave some presents to her great-grandchildren that would be born after her death. Read Jenna Bush Hager's interview below!

Barbara Bush & her great-grandchildren

Jenna Bush Hager gave a candid interview to PEOPLE, talking about her personal life. During the conversation, the mother-of-three opened up a year of loss, as she lost "three living grandparents" in 2018. So, her three-month son Hal is the first kid who will not meet all of them.

But, I will say, and this is such a beautiful thing — my grandmother [Barbara], my dad's mom, needlepointed a lot of stockings, reserves, for great-grandchildren that would be after she died.

The 38-year-old confessed she knew her grandmother had been sewing some stockings, but she wasn't sure if there was enough for Hal.

She tirelessly worked. And so my aunt just emailed me on Friday and said, 'What address should I send Hal's stocking to?' What a beautiful blessing, and what a beautiful thing that she did so that all three of my kids will have made.

Although Jenna's third baby will not meet Barbara, at least, he will be wearing stockings as a Christmas present made by his late great grannie. Bush Hager concluded:

I know that through my grandparents' letters and their stories and the way that they raised us, he'll get to know them.

Yes, baby Hal will never see his grandparents, but Jenna Bush Hager is incredibly happy that her daughters could see Barbara and George Bush alive.

After the former President's death in 2018, she paid tribute to him, saying how much she is proud that her daughters got to know their 'Gampy.'

Isn't Barbara Bush a sweetheart? She needlepointed stockings without even knowing whether or not there will be more great-grandkids!
