Currently...Fighting, singing, and crafting

Yesterday was my class's Christmas party...that I missed, because I was home sick.  I cannot tell you how sad and bummed out that makes me. I really was literally heartbroken yesterday. :(  From what I hear, they had lots of fun, and the photos I did get look really cute!  But, seriously...heartbroken!!

I was also super bummed that I had to miss night two of O Holy Night!  Our church puts on an evening of music...all of our choirs sing, our handbell choir(s)'s fantastic!  Thankfully, I was able to sing and play on Sunday night!

Thankfully, I was feeling great over the weekend, and was able to have lots of fun.  On Friday night, I went to see The Snow Queen with mom and Bonnie.  It was SO COOL! The performance was outside, and we just stood up to watch it.  We followed the performers from set to set.  VERY artistic!

Then on Saturday, we went up to see Dad perform in the Atlantic Master Chorale.  They're seriously one of the best choirs I've heard.  Fantastic!! I dream of singing in that choir!

This coming Friday is Polar Express Day in Kindergarten.  You better believe I'm not going to miss that!! I've been working on our Christmas PJ shirts.  Isn't our team going to look AWESOME!?

I'll leave you with these two writings.  "If I had a pet reindeer..."

(would sleep with him.) 

(would dress it up.  If I dress it up I would put ear rings on my reindeer.)

What are you doing this week??  How are you celebrating the holiday?  Just three more days of school, and it will be Christmas break!

Women's Gala 2014

This whole month of December has been such a fun whirlwind of fun Christmas preparations.  For the third year in a row, I attended our church's Women's Gala!  {You can read about 2013 and 2012, too!}

In years past, the women's choir I sing with performs, but this year, we got to sit back and relax.  So, the girls in my life group decorated TWO tables (in a silver and gold theme), invited our mama's, and had a GREAT time!

Merry Christmas, from the ladies!!

Do you have anything like this in your area?? I just love getting to see all of the table decorations and have some great conversation with friends!

Christmas in the Classroom

Christmas is always a special time for me, but Christmas-time in Kindergarten is one of my favorites.  Everything we're crafting is fantastic, and I just love seeing Christmas through my students eyes!  

Take a peek at our classroom Christmas decorations!

And, because you need to see what Twinkle is up to every once in a while...

The Cutest Christmas Gender Reveal Party!

Last Saturday night was our friends' gender reveal party...Christmas style!  It was one of the cutest I've seen.  Take a peek...

(We got to guess the due date...and whoever wins, or is closest, will win the gift card!)

We also got to write funny little saying on diapers for those late night changes they're sure to have...

All of the guests were asked to wear green (team boy) or red (team girl).  Their tree had a string of lights in both colors, and the grandma-to-be peeked in the envelope, and then unplugged the WRONG color, so that the corresponding lights were the ones left!

Team Boy...

Team Girl...

Green lights left! IT's a BOY!  Congrats, Hannah! You're going to be a great mother!

Dirty Dancing

A week ago, Mom took my sister and I go Atlanta to see Dirty Dancing at The Fox.  The show itself was a bit of a let down, but I'm telling you...we had SO MUCH FUN!  

We had dinner at Cafe' Intermezzo, and it was delicious!  

Marcus, pictured below, was our cheesecake tour guide...

Can we please have girls night more often??
