Happiness is...

As normal as I pretend to be, I am quirky. 
Socks. 
I ONLY buy white socks for my family.  I have the few tan & black pairs my husband and I need for church and work but if I have to wear them I change them RIGHT when I get home.  I just like looking down at 2 glowing white socks! 

Annie has been asking for colored socks lately & I have really been resisting...laundry is so easy with all white socks!  So she smiled at me & said, "Then I will just ask Santa for some for Christmas!"  & so she did.

Of course  I Santa came through...
...and when Santa gets you colored socks,
she he goes all out!
Hapiness is Polka-Dot socks!

Hey Libbie,
Just catching up ... glad Annie had fun at the show ... I love Starbucks too!!! LOVE the picture of Annie guiding the boys down the hall to their rooms on Sunday.
Please let me know if there is anything I can do to help out your hubby's parents. I am keeping them in my prayers.
Blessings,
Bren

I wear crazy socks whenever I get the chance which is usually a 3 month window! So I am digging Annie's love of socks. And Santa has good taste. I'd wear 'em. I miss you girl!

When all else fails, ask Santa! Happiness is bending a little so that you can bring joy to someone else... Too cool!

Oh Annie, those are VERY fine sock...Santa has great taste. My daughter has always loved colored socks, so we had to have "the rainbow" when she was young. Now this DID NOT mean.that they had to match, in fact all the way through school(including high school) they rarely matched...and the funny thing was, that it was quite accepted by ALL those who knew her.
She was just home for Christmas...they STILL don't match...she's 22...and you know, it wouldn't be the same if they were both the same color :)

Those socks and that girl are SO CUTE! :)

You're a good mom for giving in and getting her cute socks but I've got to warn you, it's just the beginning! ;)

I've got two teen girls and they love their clothes and they each have very distinct personalities when it comes to clothing and outfits. I lost my say (well, most of it anyway) a looong time ago! Don't get me wrong, they dress modestly, but sometimes in ways that makes me raise my eyebrows a bit...

Santa is soooo good! I hope your feeling well, are you all aglow? I would be remiss if I did not say just how adorable Annie is! Theresa xoxo

Weekend hugs. xoxo

Oh yes, my girls want/have socks like that too.Soo cute!But i always lose socks in my laundry and i never know where they end up (ok after spring cleaning i find them back in the strangest places :))
Thnks for your comment dear, you want to be me?I would love to be like you, the best mum in the world! And you should have seen me in my pregnancy....just like you described in that funny post the other day.
Just don't forget to put yourself back on the list after the baby is born :))

I LOVE polka dots of all kinds, and these sox are so supercute - espescially on Annie! Generally, socks drive me crazy. We try to buy just bkack ones now, because finding all the matching pairs - is like a huge puzzle. Missing parts under my sond beds, tables, etc. - living with 3 men is not easy ;)) Happy weekend!

Cheyenne said...

This post made my heart happy. Those socks are so cute-and the grin on her face matches.

The post just above this one made me roar! Love it! :)
