~Snow Day~

Ahem.  {taps microphone}  Um, is this thing on? 

A dear friend reminded me today that it’s been nearly two months since my last post!  Eee Gads!  It’s certainly not for lack of mundane exciting things to report, it’s more the time in which to write anything resembling a coherent thought among the thousand other things that we’re actually doing!  But, today being the beautiful gift in which teachers and students alike find ultimate happiness, I figured it was the perfect opportunity to do some fun Christmas Craftiness and get a post in to boot!

With only 7 school days remaining until we’re officially on holiday, I’m hoping to sneak in a few more posts for good measure too!  While some of you may be disappointed that these photos are not of my two growing kiddos, you can imagine for yourselves the squeals of delight and umpteen-thousand reminders that “No, it’s not time for reindeer treats yet!” both Garth and I uttered between 8am and noon.

Treats

In other holiday endeavors, I spent close to an hour this morning listening to yet another YA audio book (it’s the only way to stay on top of what my students are reading or should be reading!) while stringing cranberries to decorate the adorable little pine in the corner of our lot.  A strand or two or popcorn and we’d have all sorts of birdies coming by to snack – the kids would just love it!

Speaking of the kids, they finally woke up, so we headed upstairs to get them.  A few tickle matches and a change of clothes later, we were back in the kitchen admiring the reindeer treats when I asked, “Babe, did you move the –” and I pointed to the table where our beautiful strung cranberries had been.  Instantly we both realized that our “beloved” pup had eaten the e-n-t-i-r-e strand!  So, until we get more supplies, here’s all I can share of my cranberry craftiness today!

Sounds like both kids are actually sleeping today, so I think I’ll indulge in a little snow day rest myself!

  1. Hi Honey, I’m so glad your friend reminded you about updating your blog. This is so adorable, the reindeer treats. You truly amaze me though with all of your energy and skills.
    See you very soon. Love you, Grandma

  2. Hooray, you’re back! I love the reindeer treats. They are absolutely adorable and shame on Xanther! The poor little birdies are now going to starve. 🙂 Hope you have a very Merry Christmas!
