Tomorrow starts one of my favorite traditions. ADVENT STOCKINGS for the kids.
Every year we hang little stockings on their bedroom doorknobs and each night we stick a small present in them [usually $1 or less - socks, panty hose, make up, toy cars, candy, etc.] and mark it with a number. Tomorrow, the 1st of December with be number 24, Friday will be 23 and so on until the the morning of the 24th when it is 1! The kids get a big kick out of what we can find and it excites them to get up each morning. It isn't the cheapy little presents as much as the surprise of what is in the stocking. :D
ETA: Tracy asked what about Squirrel, the one at college - We wrapped all her little presents, numbered them and sent them off. She is on the honor system to open only one a day. :) She will open 16 at college and the remaining 8 here.
See you on the flipside Tadpoles!
