I've gotten a couple of things, but I still need a few ideas. I've gotten a flashlight, coloring book...I think that might be it? I will put a couple of candies, but I need maybe 2 more things.

Big girls always get a bottle of their favorite shampoo (not really sure where or how that started?) and candies.

Z will get maybe a race car or some toys and candy.

We also get each kid a life savers book.

Wait, I wonder if I am even doing the girls stockings this year? Hmmmm

Yesterday someone gave me bubbles and stickers for Deacon so I plan to use those in his stocking. Other than that he may get a car or two and some fruit snacks.

Zhu Zhu pet- I think that is what it is called. A little hamster toy.

New toothbrush

a doll for her new dollhouse

That's probably it. I don't want to do any candy in the stocking.

Ooooh! GREAT ideas! Noah loves bubbles and stickers!! He's got so many cars--we've been using those as potty bribes, lol.

Those little ZhuZhu pets are cute--we have a generic one from Cracker Barrel. Watch out for Lyla's hair--Noah's gotten his little hamster thing stuck in both his hair and the dog's--not fun! And a new toothbrush is a good idea too!

I forgot that I did get a new pack of underwear for him. That's an awesome present, isn't it, lol!

I'd be thrilled with new underwear in my stocking!

I like to do the toothbrush and toothpaste too but Deacon has gone to the dentist twice in the last few months so he is set on those things for a while. But - a bottle of his favorite vitamin would be exciting - ha!

Ava got 2 of those for her 2nd Birthday, and I donated both of them. I was so scared of her getting it stuck in her or someone elses hair.

We'll do new socks, a small book, toothbrush, an orange or apple, a small toy and some of their favorite snacks.

This year I think I might trick the kids. My mother crocheted all the stockings so I might make a copy of the girls in LARGER format and say that santa's magic made them bigger so they could hold the stuff. When they go to bed the next night I'll switch them back. I found some video games for the vsmile for $5 each (usually $25) so I need a bigger stocking I'm putting those in, with some lipgloss, bubble bath maybe, a barbie each, Addi is getting a piglet doll since she LOVES him these days.. so random. Some candy, chocolates ect. a book ... I found some great deals on things so I have a bunch of stuff this year and it didn't cost too much.

DH will do my stocking. I will do his, he always likes the lifesaver books someone mentioned but now they cheap out and do mostly the rainbow flavours where they used to do all different ones like butter rum (his fav) mint, ect.

I knew there was a reason I liked your DH Wink I am a huge fan of butter rums; I buy the big bags of the individual butter rums.

Bubbles is a good idea.. Ava loves bubbles. I got the safety scissors and the Despicable Me DVD and a Strawberry Shortcake DVD and a mini lalaloopsy doll set. I may do some type of candy.

I've got Ed Hardy perfume, Juicy Couture mini perfume set and a Hello Kitty car decal for Kayla so far. I don't think she'd want bubbles though so I need to come up with something else LOL
