Anatomy of a Stocking

I have always loved the idea of my children having a stocking hung so that little goodies and heartfelt treasures can be secretly dropped in during the weeks leading up to Christmas. Here's what we put into Wilson's first stocking!

I bought him only two toys: the set of emergency vehicles and the Grimms nesting bowls. The placemat is something I made (more on that in a future post). All the other items (utensils, cloth napkin, dad's old running watch, a new toothbrush, a pair of glasses, and a tiny wooden book) came from around the house - I think it will be fun for him to recognize some things among all the brand new stuff he'll get tomorrow. 

I hope you enjoy this holiday season! And for those who celebrate Christmas, may you get a stocking stuffed with treats of all kinds!
