Happy New Year blog world. I plan on doing some eating, movie watching and ushering in the New Year with a glass or two of some bubbly!
HAPPY NEW YEAR!!
Hello! It’s Wordless Wednesday. I know I haven’t played much in the blog world lately, but I’ve been busy! Really, I have. Busy eating too many Christmas cookies. Busy shopping with money don’t have. Busy just being with family! So enough yappin’…
Actually we got back (we meaning my family and I) from Michigan last night. I’m glad I got to see my Michigan family.
We ate, drank, opened Christmas presents, “skated” on the lake, and all sorts of other fun family things. I would show you all the awesome pictures I took, but guess what?! I can’t find my battery charger and the battery is dead! I swear I packed it; yet it is nowhere to be found. Don’t ya hate that!?
I’m going to look around today at Best Buy and all that to see if I can find a charger that doesn’t cost a bazillion dollars. But until then, I’ll leave you with this…
That would be my brother Andrew, just pondering life.
So, I had a great post that updated y’all on the weekend and such. I came back to finish it up and I just was not feeling it. I think it had to do with the fact that I didn’t really sit down when I got home. First, I made muffins for a staff breakfast, then Leanne and I went to Yoga, but didn’t do Yoga at all. Instead we sat and talked for about 2 hours. Sheesh. After we got back I washed dishes. So, yeah.
So here’s the weekend in pictures…
There was a lot of this
and this, Terrapin’s truffle mac n cheese
Maybe a little of this
The weekend was capped off by watching Christmas Vacation and eating leftovers from Terrapin. A great way to end the weekend and start a 3 day work week.
Without further ado, some of our favorite Christmas Vacation quotes…
“Why is the carpet all wet…Todd? I don’t know….Margo!”
“Hallelujah…Holy Sh*t!…Where’s the Tylenol?”
“Surprised Eddie?… If I woke up tomorrow with my head sewn to the carpet, I wouldn’t be more surprised than I am now.”
“Hey Griswold. Where do you think you’re gonna put a tree that big? Bend over and I’ll show you. You’ve got a lot of nerve talking to me like that Griswold. [looking at his wife, Margo] I wasn’t talking to you.”
“Is your house on fire, Clark? No, Aunt Bethany, those are the Christmas lights.”

What’s your favorite Christmas movie quote?
Sorry I’ve been absent from the blogging world for a bit! I just wasn’t feeling the draw to write anything.
Something very exciting did happen… It snowed!
If you don’t know, this is very rare for us here at The Beach. So when it does snow basically everybody goes crazy. When the kids saw it snowing they instantly said that school was going to be canceled and we all would go home. Ummm, that didn’t happen, but good try.
Christmas is in full effect now. Today we saw the Christmas program at our school. Very cute. We also have all of our Christmas lights turned on. Score! I’d take a picture, but it is super cold and windy outside, so you’ll just have to take my word for it.
But just pretend that it looks like this
It’s like Chevy Chase in Christmas Vacation! Which, by the way, is one of my favorite Christmas movies. So here, in no particular order are my favorite Christmas flicks
Dan in Real Life
One Magic Christmas
Charlie Brown Christmas
What are some of your favorites?
Don’t answer that because I really don’t want to know. I still haven’t started Christmas shopping, but that will change today. Today, we go Christmas shopping.
We went to a Christmas party last night that included a lot of little guys. It was for the gym where we do Pilates and yoga. It was cute, but a lot of little people running around.
Speaking of little people… The teacher’s assistant that works in first grade with one of my students had this conversation: (slightly paraphrased)
S-What are tutu’s ?
MT – Tutu’s are what ballerina’s wear.
S- Oh! Do they have small and big ones?
MT – Yes they come in all sizes.
S- Oh, then you’d probably need a big one.
MT – *silence*
S – Ya know, because you’re an adult…
Oooo good save and walking on dangerously thin ice my little beseecher. I hope it’s okay that I shared this MT!
I’ll leave you with some Christmas photos!
Yes, I have a Christmas tree in my room. I like it! And that’s all I’m going to say.
Have a great weekend!
I promise this is going somewhere!
Yesterday, I was sitting with one of students and trying to get him to write. It’s really hard for him to come up with anything to say. He’s the lowest reader in our class. I told him he could write about anything. His favorite color, his favorite food to eat, his mom… ”
S -Oh! I’ll write about my mom!
MG- Great, that’s perfect! What do you want to say?
MG – My mom likes to…
S – My mom likes to…move!
MG – Oh, your mom likes to dance?
S – No, my mom likes to move. Like she moves around a lot.
I quickly realized that he meant that his mom likes to mom apartments a lot. He then drew a picture of him, his mom, a big box, and his suitcase. He even told me that he can pack his own suitcase. Then, he said that he was moving on Friday. I think the last part was a fib. I think.
Oh teaching…and children…
a little bit of this 'n' that
