I'm alive I'm alive!


 
It is true! I am still here! Drowning in house paperwork but still here! So you may think this isn't much, but for how crazy busy it has been this is happy times for me :) I finally added something to TPT!! *applause* I forgot how long it takes to prep something for TPT even though its 1 bloomin page! Doesn't matter, I am proud of myself, mainly because I was supposed to use this holiday break time creating and uploading idea after idea...didn't work out as such. It is a start. Once we get settled I will set up my station and start creating again! I have so many things just sitting on my zip drive waiting to be uploaded but I have to make them all "cutsified" and add credits and such. So I know ya'll are just dying to see my 1 page wonder haha....

And I am linking up with Simply Kinder for this:
I always LOVE finding new blogs and learning about other teachers and how they do their "thang"
Link up and meet some new friends....but keep the old...one is silver and the others gold....a circle is round it has no end.....
Guess that tune!!! :)

Merry Christmas!! For today a savior has been born!

Just wanted to stop by from my phone and say Merry Merry Christmas!!!! I hope everyone's day has been blessed and you've been able to celebrate the reason for the season.  Will be blogging again soon, very hectic round these parts lately, let's just say I've been knee deep in packing boxes;) my plans for working on school items and playing with my new Sillouette is on hold for now. 
I also have a new puppy niece;) photo bombing. Her name is Lulu, isn't she so cute!!! 

The Savior—yes, the Messiah, the Lord—has been born today in Bethlehem, the city of David! (Luke 2:11 NLT)

Remembering Sandy Hook

As educators, we remember and honor our fallen colleagues and their students from Sandy Hook School. We honor them each day in our classrooms in which we continue their dream of teaching our children. We honor their memory with our service. 

Join with teachers everywhere in committing random acts of kindness to show our love for Sandy Hook.

"He heals the brokenhearted and binds up their wounds."
Psalm 147:3

Five for Friday!!!!

Linking up this chilly Friday night with Doodle Bugs and the Five for Friday!!




We have been plugging away at place value! Always a difficult concept for the little's.
 
Ok so this is an OCD nightmare! Seriously! My sister sent me an email the other day with the link to a website for pictures that will irritate your ocd..it was quite funny to see which things really do get me! So as my kiddos were playing their place value game they pulled out two cards and said "These cards are cut!" I almost crawled out of my skin! haha! I mean really?! After working so hard cutting, laminating and cutting again, to find THIS? Well I let them continue playing, obviously my OCD hasn't rubbed off on those two kids because they were just fine working this those awful excuse for cards :P I thought long and hard...remake them? its only one set....I decided against it at the moment since I am already drowning with things to do before we leave for break...I guarantee you though those cards will be redone! :P Ain't nobody got time for ugly uneven cards!
 
Over Thanksgiving we went to my in-laws and my hubby's niece who is 7 came down to visit. She LOVES our little dog Socky. They bond every time and he gets to soak up all the attention! They played on the IPAD together, so sweet!
 
 
Does this explain how I feel? I am sure we all feel this way...so many things to do this time of the year and such little time to fit it all in. I LOVE Christmas time, but at school its crazy town. Thankfully we have an amazing admin team to let us wear jeans and holiday wear until Christmas break AND provides some treats to us daily for the last 12 days!!! UH-MAZ-ING.
 
And finally!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Yahoo!!! I can not wait to bust into this bad boy and get creative! Although I hate reading instruction manuals because I am impatient and want to create at the push of a button. I hope it is pretty easy to get going...any advice? :)
 
Well I hope ya'll have a BLESSED weekend and keep your spirits up, the break is almost here!!!
