Currently it's December!!

Well, Hello There! Long time no see!!! I always love how Farley's party brings me out of my blogging hibernation.  So, here we go!!! 

Most of these will probably be pretty self explanatory...but...since I love to ramble....

Listening: You know those sappy, cheesy, love-dovie Christmas movies that make your stomach hurt because they're so syrupy sweet? Yea...I love those.  I cannot tell a lie. I just eat them up like an elf eating spaghetti and syrup. 

Loving and Thinking are going hand-in-hand this month for me. I love how relaxed I was this past weekend and able to enjoy family and friends and I am looking forward to counting down the next 15 hectic school days until Winter Break! 

Wanting: My Sissy!!! She is coming in from Texas for a month next week and I cannot wait for a whole lot of sister time!!! 

Needing: As I type this I have a luncheon to prepare for, lamination to cut, plans to make, things to wrap, and a bag full of grading...pretty much everything except what I'm doing right now is on my To Do List.  

Giving: Did you see Farley's post about how she teaches students the importance of giving?? I loved it! I've done random acts of kindness in February with Valentine's Day, but I just may incorporate it along with this season as well.  

In the spirit of giving, I'll be sharing any one of my products from my TPT store with the first three people to comment on this post. :) Be sure to leave me your e-mail, so that I can send you the file of your choosing.  You may want to peek at my newest set of Winter Wonderland centers.  This pack includes 8 games that are engaging for students and simple enough to be managed independently.

Happy Holidays!!!


  1. Don't you just LOVE cheesy, sappy Christmas movies?! My husband just looked at my watched section on Netflix and was like, "Wow, I think you might have a problem." ;-)

    Your freebie looks super cute!

  2. I can totally relate to most of your comments! Since I've been home from work I've done NOTHING I had planned! And I too just had the BEST weekend ever! My hubby took me away for the weekend and it was blissfully uninterrupted time! Thanks for sharing your Currently!

  3. I am watching a sappy, Christmas movie as we speak!! I have all the Hallmark Christmas movies set to record on my DVR. #addicted I overly enjoyed my weekend, too. I know how crazy the next three weeks are going to be, so I definitely took advantage!

    Have a great week!

  4. I know I'm number four on the list of comments and I miss out on the fabulous Freebie, but that's okay! I had to share the love on the comments of lovie-dovie Christmas movies. Elf has become my favorite holiday movie, followed closely by A Christmas Story (love me some Ralphie). I can't tell you how many times throughout the year my husband will remind me that dangers lurk around every corner and I must be careful or I'll put my eye out! Fa-ra-ra-ra-ra-ra Merry Christmas all.... Erainna

    Now, on to more serious matters: Can someone tell me how to hyperlink my web address when I sign off on a comment?

    1. Erianna,

      You need to paste in HTML code. And it's tricky to tell you, because if I put in the code exactly the way you need, it will convert it to my hyperlink. So, let's try this: my code is ***a href="">4th Works< symbol in the beginning, and the > symbol at the end. Obviously you would replace my http://.... info with the link to your blog. And then replace "4th Works" with the text you want to display for your link. Once you get it I would recommend pasting that info onto an easily accessible page for you to copy and paste each time you need it. Mine is on a Google Doc that I have bookmarked. If you are unable to get it, please email me at and I'd be happy to help you more. You can paste the exact code in an email:) Good luck!

    2. Oops, don't know what happened to the code above, try this again.

      ***a href="">4th Works< and the second *** with >
