CCO / Ho ho ho / Go, Finn, Go!

For all you Project Runway fans out there, Tim Gunn was in the Valley today for "Phoenix Fashion Week." Apparently his official new title at Liz Claiborne is "Chief Creative Officer." I have heard of CFOs and CEOs and UFOs, but not CCOs. So I want to be one, of course! I am now officially the CCO of the Johnson household... Maybe I should alert Wes to this, since technically he is equally, if not more creative than I. Hmmm...


So this is an advent calendar, of sorts, from Denmark. The store just gave it to me for free because I thought it was so cute with the little nissemænd (elves). The sales lady told me (in her great accent) that I am supposed to tie little toys to it for every day in December. So this year Wes made a joking reference to the fact that it's my responsibility to get fun little things and tie them on for him to open everyday. So I did, of course! I bought very little things and put them in very little bags and tied them on the very little rings. But apparently they weren't very little enough, because now I have a very big poufy mess. ("Oh little nissemænd...where are you?")

But hey—there are a lot of fun surprises in those bags, and I insisted on bags to make it more of a surprise! Opening commences Saturday. (As I write this, Santa from A Christmas Story is saying "Ho ho ho" on TV...awesome!)

This is Finn's new trick on the road to learning how to walk. He bonks into things a lot, but it's oh-so-cute.

I adore your big poufy mess!! It looks like a calender full of fun. I hope you'll show us some of the things that you put in those little bags as they get opened because I'm completely curious now!

I love little walking Finn! He is so precious.
