Day 18 What's in my Stocking?
I thought it would be fun to share what my parents always filled my stocking with.
Something that’s pretty unique is all the English candy I always get. My grandma grew up in England and we’ve had a lot of traditional English food around. For Christmas I would always get three specific candies in my stocking: a Flake bar, Crunchie bar, and Buttons. It’s something I always look forward to.
In addition to those candies, I would always get a chocolate orange as well.
Besides candy, my parents would always put a $10 itunes gift card in my stocking.
While that not really a whole lot of things, they really mean alot to me and I’m glad I’ve had this type of informal tradition in my life.

Day 15 Christmas in Color
Last night Tyler and I went and experienced the Christmas in Color. This is a cute event that took place at the equestrian park near us. They created a half a mile long drive through with amazing lights. Lots of tunnels and trees everywhere. To top it all off, it was scynorated to music playing on a radio station.
I loved the light display and especially enjoyed driving through the tunnels. It was beautiful.
Day 14 Presents I wanted as a kid
I thought this topic would be fun to write about. As I think back over my years of Christmas lists and what I wanted I noticed that my childhood is very different than those who are children now. Ha does that make me sound old??
Something that almost always made it on my Christmas list was Littlest Pet Shop toys. I loved those. Even now I have a huge collection of them at my parents house.
I also wanted Tamagotchis for several years in a row. Funny that this year this item made it back on my list.
When I was quite a bit younger, I remember really wanting an art kit. You know those huge ones with a full set of markers, crayons, colored pencils, paints, and oil pastels. I remember finally getting it and loving it.
It seems that every child had a ridiculous Christmas list item. For most it was a pony, but for me it was a laptop. I think I asked for one for every Christmas. Of course I never got it, but its funny to think that 13 year old me really thought my parents might get me one.
What was on your childhood Christmas lists?
