I have a confession to make. Are you ready for this? I do not do stockings for my family for Christmas. There I said it. We don’t even have a fireplace, and if it makes you feel any better my mother in law does stockings for my girls every year. So they don’t miss out on all the wondrous stocking moments on Christmas day.
Because I still wanted to do something fun and festive I decided I would do an Advent Calender for the Screamettes this year. A few years ago my Mother in Law (yeah, she’s awesome) gave us a beautiful Christmas quilt with pockets for each day in December.
I love how it looks against our green brick wall. I thought one day each week here I would share some of the fun little things I am putting in the pockets for the girls to get every day. The items I will talk about today were all purchased at one of my favorite place to get holiday things. The Christmas Boutique held inside the Festival of Trees. I was able to go with my mom on Tuesday and had a blast. It is for such an amazing cause all of the proceeds go to the Primary Children’s Medical Center. Here are the things the girls will be getting from the advent calendar for the next few days
I am so excited to see how much fun they have with the cute sock puppets!
There were so many amazing trees! Here is a picture of the fun tree my Mom bought. She has nine grandchildren eight years and under and they are all going to go nuts when they see this at her house.
I love this time of year and all the neat things that are going on. There is no better time of year.
