My sweet friend made this gorgeous Stocking Advent Calendar for Vida and
I am so in love with it! We used all of our fabric scraps to save on buying fabric, we even used little toddler blue jeans, the little blue jean pockets kill me with cuteness.
Inside each mismatched stocking is a little paper snowman with an activity written on it.
I hung the stockings in her room, so every morning she can help me take out the little snowman and see what we have planned for the day.
I also hid little treats, mini candy canes, Christmas stickers, short bible verses and little hair bows inside.
I planned all these activities well in advanced, since we have a lot going on in December.
Vida's social calendar is exhausting, we are always on the go.
