November... December... and Hello 2014!

I have really been lame about the updating- Sorry! Here's a quick run through of what my holiday season at home and school has looked like... (PICTURE HEAVY!)

I had SO much fun with Elf on the Shelf this year...
Our Elf, who we named Jingle Jack, came bearing gifts and treats. It was great fun!

But then we has some behavior issues....

Our beloved "JJ" did return a few days later, however he was touched one day by a student (thankfully the Dept. of Elf Surveillance sent magic dust to restore his health) and I basically became too busy to snap pics of his cuteness... 

Anyway, we had ugly Christmas Sweater Day at school. Check out this ugliness!

I did not get my fill of ugly sweaters, however, so we threw an Ugly Sweater Holiday party at our casa!
We had an Ugly Sweater Contest, Christmas Trivia, a Hot Chocolate Bar, and a photo area complete with props! GREAT FUN!

That was not all of the festive dress up... We and a few friends of ours participated in our town's annual "Santa's Night Out" where it's common to dress up like Santa. Since we like to be different, we chose to dress like snow-women!

My boys and I decorated a TON of homemade Christmas Cookies (my oldest made a gingerbread poop cookie) and I've been eating them for days now... Perfect companion for my coffee!

 And just yesterday, my baby boy turned 11!!!!! His birthday was a lot of fun. He is truly and angel - both my boys are. I am so blessed!!

Now that all these fabulous festivities are over, I'm going to sit back, relax and enjoy the start of a New Year... And by "sit back" and "relax", I mean redo our bedroom. :)

To celebrate the upcoming year, I'm hosting a sale in my TPT store!! I'm offering 20% off my Rockin' Math Journals and Rockin' Math Journals Basic Set Up! Plus, the first 5 to puchase (according to my TPT sales log) will get an Area and Perimeter Zoo pack for FREE! Be sure to visit my store Jan. 1 - 4 to start your 2014 math instruction off with a BANG!
