Today was the first day of our advent 'calendar'. I stole a great idea from a magazine last year and put it up this weekend. We have 25 socks and mittens hung on a piece of yarn with clothespins. Each clothespin has a number on it. In the morning, after Andrew's clothes are on (and all facing forward) and his hair has been combed, he gets to check that day's sock/mitten. Today, he found a mini tootsie roll in there and you would have thought it was a million dollars. He was in a great mood all the way to daycare.
