Baby Sock Advent Calendar

OK, this is just too cute if I do say so myself. As you know from a previous post, I wanted to have an Advent Calendar this year. Kelly sent me a couple of links to ideas. I LOVED the

Mine doesn't looks the same but it is the same principle.

You start with a garland. You can make your own but luckily I had one that Sweetie made me several years ago.

Here's a close up view of the rag garland.
The original idea called for 24 baby socks, so I started shopping. I bought some precious little white socks at Wal-Mart, but when I was at Target I found these cuties in the $1.00 Bin. Aren't they precious?
You cannot tell very well from this photo, but these are teeny-tiny little clothespins. I purchased them at Hobby Lobby.
You simply use the tiny clothespins to hang the little socks on the Garland. Fill each sock with a tiny treat. Won't Caleb be excited to get a Santa Stocking Treat each day in December?

Now that is a precious idea. Wonder if my Target has those cute socks????

I can tell you are having a lot of fun being retired. Too bad you are so far away.

Still waiting for some more snow photos...

The one on the far right and the third one in from the right look like they are little fat and happy Santas. Either that or they ate little cans of play-doh.

Gao Hongbo judges world cup final: Spain should hit out actively -- in new network
The first time of world cup final that holds with nonlocal area in Europe attends by two Europe team, also be a window of current world cup. On the history, also only [url=]michael jordan shoes[/url] Brazilian team is in besides this continent " guest field " had won championship. This European team can gain the championship in Africa, it is a progress of European football.
We divide the style of European football commonly it is two kinds: One kind is hale model make a way, the delegate is Greek, the team such as England, Germany; Another kind of style calls Latin group, have on behalf of team France, Spain, Portuguese etc; Italy, Holand two teams are interpose at both between, have the team of style of him original creation. On current world cup the expression of Spanish team still represents the tradition of our region football; And Holand team coach has very big innovation, the pursuit that the watch surpasses a result according to contrast now will make copy a tactics. These two teams enter final final, represented two kinds of train of thought that head a group.
Look in the competition that has had in current world cup, of Holand team defend organization and German team have similar place, team member is tacit and young, insufficient, not quite stable also, the clever light that the player basically relies on on aggression shows suddenly. In the final of 12 days of before dawn, if Spanish team is eager to hope for success, place frame-up position to cannot stabilize state of mind, will have the risk that misses champion. Spaish should continue to hold to the train of thought of semifinals and German team game, undertake hitting out actively with positive attitude.
