Key chain monkey with light up eyes and screeching. The dogs "love" it.

Re: precious wee
i wonder if, in the days before plastic, people would put bits of fruit in the little cubbies of these things. i further wonder if, three weeks later, the gift was not so much "one pristine clementine" as "300 gnats and maggots"

Re: precious wee
Ah! There we have the fine tradition of candied or sugared fruit to avoid those unpleasant little intruders especially in tropical climates.

Re: precious wee
how does putting sugar on fruit make it less appealing to bugs?

Re: precious wee
The bugs still like it but they get so overloaded with the extra sugar that they need naps and it slows them down. :)

Re: precious wee
I also just thought about marzipan which I always like the look of but not the taste. I know that was a special holiday treat.

Yummy hazelnut. I'm currently addicted to cashew butter which is oh so much better than peanut butter.

That's the nicest advent calendar I've ever seen and definitely re-usable. You should give it back to your friends next Christmas filled with goodies - and then just give it back and forth!

Gee Willikers, I wonder what's behind door number 25? You must post a pic.

Precious Wee
You called? ;p

P.S. Are those gingerbread and pumpkin spice candles? *****SNIFF*****

Heehee! I knew you'd like precious wee! That's a good idea about alternating years with our buddies. What a lovely tradition! We just opened today's door and got a monkey. I might just have to post a picture or better yet a video of the Corgi reaction to the monkey.

Juannie bought me lots of candles yesterday so they were in the picture, too!
