Anyhoo, one of the things she had on there that I really liked was a little “recipe” for filling your stockings. The “recipe” went something like this:
- Something to eat
- Something to play with
- Something to read
- Something they need
Apparently, Victorian children hung their stockings on their bedposts and that is what they found in their stockings the next morning. I really really like it and I think I am going to add that to my list of things to do each year. I think it would be something neat that my kids can pass on to their kids and so on!
So with that being said, here is what is going in their stockings:
Something to eat: I got them large candy canes. Zachary told me that he wanted Santa Claus to bring him a large candy cane. Not the most nutritious thing, but it will do for this year.
Something to play: I got a huge huge pack of playdoh that I will be dividing up between the kids and putting one or two (maybe three lol) tubs in their stockings and saving the others for Easter baskets.
Something to read: Zachary had a book order that I just turned in and ordered them each two books (dollar books too! Gotta love that deal!
Something they need: I got Zachary a pack of boxer briefs and Bella a pack of cute undershirts.
Their stockings are full and I spent about 10 dollars (if that) per stocking!!!
