Weekly "Wrap" Up!

One of the best Fridays EVER.... 3 weeks of winter break have just begun! The alarm has been turned off and vacation is in full effect!

We finished our holiday gifts to our parents! The kids made these adorable snowman ornaments! Thank goodness for my amazing mom, who came in to work with each of the kids to make them. I made the salt and flour dough and she helped the kids make their creations! I wrapped them all up and attached these adorable tags from Sonya DeHart.

My sweet little girl, Dakota, got to come home yesterday!!! She had surgery this week to remove a mass on her back end. We have been trying to control it with antibiotics, but no luck. The surgery went well, but we know it is only a matter of time for it to grow back. We are going to enjoy every moment we have together. It is hard watching your "first born" get older. 

Today was our last day with our classroom elf, Snowflake. He was so much fun to have around. We found him sitting on the North Pole this morning! He left the kids reindeer candy canes and a sweet note! They were in love with him. 

These books were delivered to my classroom this week thanks to my amazing SIL and City National Bank! The kids were so excited to help open the box and see what was inside! We can't wait to add them to our classroom library!

I am super excited to be part of the Melonheadz Addict Blog! I now have this adorable button to add to my blog! If you want to find out more about it and how you can become a member click {HERE}.

We made it, my friends! Time to celebrate the holidays and winter break! Enjoy!


  1. Book delivery?!? What a fantastic present to open. Is that a special program one of your banks runs, or something else? I'm curious. :)
