What a full year 2010 has been! Here are a few highlights.
Going to my new favorite beach on a cruise with my husband.

Moving into our first house.

We also loved meeting this little.
I can't post one picture without showing off the other four sweet ones. They loved Zoo Boo. :)

I feel so blessed and I know there were many more wonderful things this year, but I have got to show you my last project of the year! (The idea came from here where they are doing a giveaway)

Now I just need to get some curtains and new furniture to come in 2011.
***Happy New Year!***

Christmas Time is Near

This is what I want to be doing...
** Baking cookies**
** Watching Christmas movies by a fire**

**Staying in my layers of pajamas, robe, hat and blankets all day**
**Sing Christmas Songs all day**

Instead I am doing laundry, cleaning out the fridge, and getting ready for work tomorrow. (I did sing songs to wake Alex up Sunday. After about 20 minutes we were almost late and I didn't realize I'd been singing so long and he was still pretending to be asleep.) I would say I wanted this week to hurry up and end so I could get to a few of those things, but time has been FLYING by and I can't believe this will be my second Christmas with my husband. I really just want time to slow down a bit so I can enjoy this season and all the blessing from this year.

Boys vs. Girls

My class decided to adopt an "angel" this year. The angels are needy kids that our PTA gathers information and wish lists from around Christmas so they can have some gifts to unwrap. They are all given a code names. Our angel is Harvest. She is a little girl and just asked for a few things on on her little list.
I asked each student to bring $5 if they could or more. A whole week went by and I had a total of $6.00. Yep, only two people brought anything....... yikes. Then I got this idea from another teacher to make it a compitition between boys and girls. WOW the kids were pulling money out of desks and lockers! Boys- $20 Girls - $6.25 They boys were really into winning although I NEVER said there would be any kind of prize for the winner. :) Today the girls stepped it up and we were tied at $22.25. The change started coming out and people are saying they are bringing more money in tomorrow. Looks like Harvest will be getting the coat, shoes, underwear, pillow pet, and almost everything on her list!
