The weather outside is, in fact, frightful. SW Ohio got about 6 inches of snow early this morning.
This is one of my favorite “Christmas” songs to listen to. Enjoy…
It was a good year.
Such a good year, in fact, that it was the year of Jesus. Betcha didn’t know that one! That lovely factiod is brought to you by the first grade.
My little buddy was passing out his Christmas presents to the teachers. He gave a bag to one teacher, looked inside the bag, and proclaimed, “Here Miss C., it’s girl stuff.” Indeed it was little buddy, indeed. What was in the bag? Well Bath and Body Works of course. Definitely girl stuff.
Christmas Blog Challenge
Sooo…I’ve kind of fallen off the blogosphere. What can I say? Christmastime is busy times.
Day 19: Favorite Stocking Stuffer.
I’m going with chocolate or iTunes gift cards on this one. I mean it’s pretty much a win win. Chocolate? Delicious. iTunes? Deliciousness for my ears.
To end this random post, I give you The Oatmeal, How Much do Cats actually Kill?
I know if I let Bond out, he’d go on a spree; starting with the dog next door…
A student told the general ed teacher in the classroom that he now had proof that Santa was in fact real and that he believed in him. Do you want proof too? Check out this link!
Okay, I have some catching up to do with the Christmas blog challenge!
Day 12:Gift wrap or gift bag? I am definitely a gift wrap girl. I love to pick out the different paper, bows, and ribbon. Even though I know my beautiful artwork will be destroyed within seconds, I still have fun doing it.
Day 13: Favorite Christmas book
This is a toughie. Plus I think since I’m a school teacher, I’m allowed to have a couple.
First: Polar Express
Second: How the Grinch Stole Christmas
Third: Cathedral Mouse
I’m not exactly sure this book is a Christmas book. IT takes place in the winter and always made me think of Christmas. I love the little mouse in the book and how he hides in the church.
Today a first grader very eloquently and loud enough for the entire class to hear that another first grader called him a d@#$head. Nice right? I’d like to first know what type of language the one student is hearing at home. Then want to know why the other felt the need to repeat it. Good times indeed.
How fitting that day 10 of the Christmas blog challenge is favorite Christmas scent.
Mine would most definitely have to be the smell of a freshly cut Christmas tree. Aaannd I just put up…my fake Christmas tree.
Oh well, it may not be freshly cut, but it’s still pretty!
In other news, I’m almost all the way done with my Christmas shopping! Crazy talk, I know. In my family we send out Christmas lists. Yes, even at 30 I send my mom a Christmas list. It’s not like I’m still asking for a Barbie and a new bike…well maybe. But, I think it helps guide your shopping if you have a list to work off of. Some people I know, totally disagree.
What do you think? Do you like a list to go off of when Christmas shopping?
Are you done with your Christmas shopping?
And for only $1.99 it can be yours. Seriously, it was $1.99. I almost bought it just to hear what a Yuletide Disco would sound like.
Day 6 in the Christmas Blog Challenge: favorite Christmas tree ornament.
It’s hard to pick my favorite. I love the Christmas tree as a whole! I think I have two favorites…both off the wall and sound like they shouldn’t be Christmas tree ornaments.
We’ve always had a pickle on the Christmas tree, as did my Grandma and pretty much everyone on my mom’s side. The story I’ve always been told is that it is supposed to bring good luck. I’m not going to fit that logic and yes I do, in fact, have a pickle on my tree.
2) My second favorite ornament is a spider web. Just because it doesn’t belong there, but it’s so pretty. The web is sparkly and iridescent with a sparkly iridescent spider. It just looks cool and so non Christmas like.
Do you have a favorite ornament?
Tonight I am going to be making these brownies and putting up some Christmas decorations. Oh and watching Dexter…totally normal Christmas behavior.
What do you do when you’re in a funk? Because I really need some advice for how to get out of mine! Blah! There is not a real reason for feeling this way…which makes it all the more annoying.
Fifth day of Christmas: Best gift you’ve ever received.
I’m not sure about the best gift. However, the best gifts in our old house in Michigan were always in the basement. Doesn’t sound amazing, but it was. There was another Christmas tree down there and usually the train was set up. One year I remember getting a bike. A blue, banana seat, big girl bike. Super exciting!
