Every Christmas our family gathers to celebrate Jesus’ birthday with gifts, a yummy breakfast, a competition (more on that in a later post!), and lots of memory-making.
I’m the kind of person who would rather get 8 million tiny gifts than one large thing, so stockings are where it’s at in my book.
And holy cow does
my mom Santa know how to make my stocking seriously the best thing everrrr!
Last year I documented my stocking’s contents so that you could get a taste of the amazingness.
*I recognize how blessed I am to have this awesome mom (I love you, Mom!) who takes the time to find little trinkets and baubles that resonate with my personality. I am pretty sure she works on gathering stocking surprises the whole year long – beginning December 26th… I present this humbly… As I do all of my posts… Simply desiring to share and inspire. :-)*
First things first.
The stocking itself.
My incredible Aunt Tina sewed our whole family’s stockings – complete with hand-stitched names.
When my brother and I got married, she made stockings for our spouses.
When one of us had a baby, she added stockings for them as well.
And just recently my mom flew up to spend a weekend with my Aunt Tina where she learned how to make the stockings herself (since it seems our family is ever growing!).
If I had any luck with sewing I’d jump on that band wagon, for sure. But alas, I am afraid my skills end at crafting and 5-ingredient recipes and wearing an exorbitant amount of glitter. 🙂
Ready to dive in my stocking? Here we go!
Sooooo fun, right?!
(Do you see a theme? I am pretty easy when it comes to the things I like… If it sparkles, I will love it forever and if Mickey/Disney has anything to do with it, I will also love it forever.) 🙂
When the Happy Hubby married into my family, he could NOT believe how great our stockings were. His experience with stockings had been fun (lots and lots of candy) but nothing like the carefully planned and executed wonder over at our place.
