I personally love the holidays and love giving back during the holidays so this was a super fun activity for me. A few days ago I just finished up my angel tree gifts and now I'm ready to move on to my stocking stuffing. Mt initial task was to find a deserving family and fill a stocking for one child. Well, it didn't quite work that way for me. I'm a part of a local military wife group on Facebook and one lady just happened to mention a military family that is really struggling this year. The husband is deployed, the wife is unable to work because of a difficult pregnancy and they have two very young girls. This year they weren't even planning on having Christmas because of everything that was going on. This is absolutely something I can relate to! This will be the second year that my husband has been deployed during the holidays. It's not always the easiest thing and sometimes I know how hard it can be to just hold things together, especially if you don't have family or a support group nearby. So of course I volunteered to help out! Then I was picked to do the stocking stuffing shop and there was no way I was only going to make one stocking! Instead I chose to make two, one for each girl!
Now my shopping experience wasn't the best of best. I'm one of those holiday shoppers who does everything online or gets it done super early so it was difficult for me to go into Walmart (the busiest place on Earth during the holidays) and try to take pictures and find stocking stuffers! I also couldn't believe how hard it was to find Disney related stuff! However, two Walmarts later, I had plenty of items for a great stocking! You can see my entire shopping experience in my google + album!
Then of course I went crazy! I found all kinds of cool Disney Princess items and stuffed them in, along with adding some good ole candy. I mean you can't have a stocking without candy. I think the only thing I left out was the fruit! The kids loved helping as you can see.
