the countdown begins

yes, i'd love to have a little more martha in me and be able to say my baby sock advent calendar turned out

 just    like     this.
(martha's version to the left)

but i can't say that. 

BUT  i can say that i do like ours! 

 the little socks that mia and maddie wore, and now izzy too, will be little reminders each Chistmas of their little selves way back when.

here is our advent sock calendar  - the eventful countdown begins today!

oh how i love traditions!


  1. Jen - Such a cute idea! I'm going to have to remember this for Kyra's socks next year!! We just bought candy and put it in our advent calendar last night. It's a cute wooden stack of numbered gift boxes - store bought from Target a few years ago. But yours is much cuter and has that homemade charm that you just can't find at Target (that might be the only thing you can't find at Target).

  2. That is really cute, and I never would've thought to do that. Especially since we always have a zillion socks with its missing pair, how does that happen :)

  3. So cute and yours will always have a special meaning...
    Living it up at Lakewood,

  4. Hands down, your sock advent garland is much more special. It reflects your girls own little socks. I can just see their sweet expressions of anticipation wondering what is inside each little sock. Great idea. I love traditions, too! ~ Happy Day! ~ Sarah

  5. So adorable!!
    Great idea!


admit it! comments make your day! i'd love to hear what you have to say!
