NYE Dreams

New Years Eve for the past couple of years have been not-so-exciting. Basically, we have sat around, played games, and tried to make it to midnight. Might be fun any other night of the week, but not a memory maker.

This year, this is how I dream of spending my NYE...

Forts, hot chocolate, reviewing 2011, dreaming about 2012, and watching the ball drop. Maybe even a New Year's kiss.

J is going to be so excited when he hears this. ;)

A Little Love

Here are some things, I am really loving right now...  Hilarious!

Bela Fleck went caroling in my neighborhood Saturday night. Yeah, that just happened. Sadly, he did not stop by my house, but I know it was just a slight oversight on his part. ;)

Michael Buble had permission to come swing by my house anytime to serenade me. You need to check out his Christmas album.

The tv show New Girl... Where have I have been?!!?!

I love the fact that I ran into my friend Amanda at Fidos and McKays on the same day and totally unplanned. (Then another planned Fidos trip that night.) That pretty much sums up why we are friends.

My super sweet love J who is currently getting me soup because I feel like poop.

Until next time...

Literacy Trees :)

Last week, my grandmother and I took some time to go the Governor's mansion to see the house decorated for Christmas. This year, Mrs. Haslam asked some of the schools to make ornaments for her Read 20 trees. Our school was not one of the ones chosen, but some of my teaching buddies at other schools were. It was so neat to see Mrs. Bozeman's and Ms. Ridings' classes work. :)

How cute are these?!?!

The Garden of Eve? ;)
Max from Where The Wild Things Are
"We'll eat you up- we love you so!"

Rainbow Fish

Skippyjon Jones! My favorite children's character

A take on Where's Waldo?... student's name instead

I am thinking I might need to have a literacy tree next year!
