Christmas Countdown

I have been looking for fun Christmas countdowns/advent calendars for a while.  The other day I was at Ikea (of course) and came across this wire Christmas tree for 10 bucks so I snatched it up.
Then I saw 4 packs of mini stockings at Walmart for $.97 and bought six of them.  I had glitter glue from the dollar store and wrote the numbers 1-24 on the stockings.  Here's the result:

Here is our list for this year.  Some days we will double up because we have more to do than days in the countdown.
