The night before CHRISTmas Lupe and I are up late getting the turkey ready and waiting for the children to fall asleep so I can fill their stockings. I always enjoy and have lots of fun filling them.
This year I was doing some last minute stocking stuffers. I had one main item for each but didn’t have the the fillers (like candy). Thankfully we had to do a last minute run to the grocery store and I bought things they would appreciate from there. Hot cocoa packets, 100% Caprisun juice drink, Nerds, large mint candy, and in all of the stocking I put a Whatchamacallit, do you remember those candy bars? I have more than once told the kids about a Whatchamacallit so I thought that would be fun .
The main stocking stuffer item was:
Joshua~ Wow 2012, which is a Christian cd with all the ‘wow’ music from that year.
Annette~Ten Girls From History Audio Book
Caleb~Big pack of gum and a Mission Ready ID/Passport Holder
Brent~Mission Ready ID/Passport Holder and a Sock Monkey (he collects sock monkey items).
Ethan~a cute pair of skid proof slippers and a Mission Ready ID/Passport Holder
Lance~a cute pair of skid proof slippers and a Angel Wars Dvd.
In Brent’s stocking I also put a cup of that not good-for-you soup.
As I’m writing this on CHRISTmas morn the children are sleeping all snug in their bed, on the floor, or couch. (they were up earlier raiding their stockings).
