Last year was the first that my Fiance and I woke up together on Christmas morning.  We had decided to only exchange stockings and go on a trip together after Christmas.  

Well on Christmas morning he opened his stocking from me and it was filled with chocolates, a CD, a book, some shaving cream, etc.  Then I opened mine and it had mostly “joke” gifts like plastic scrubbies for doing dishes, toothpicks, and some other dollar-store items.  I’m not complaining, he also put in a really nice scarf and glove set from LLBean.  But it was so funny when he explained that he thought we were supposed to do mostly joke items in the stocking.  I think he definitely started a tradition with that because this year I’ll be sure to stuff some things like garbage bags and lightbulbs into his stocking!

This is SO and I’s first Christmas where we get to wake up together. I am so excited. We decided to do stockings this year and I must admit I went a completely different route than PP to fill his stocking, if you catch my drift. I’m mostly excited that we get to wake up together and we can enjoy Christmas morning and have Christmas breakfast together 🙂
