Currently Dec.

Linking up with Farley!


Pretty for a Dec. Sunday evening. Even though it's making me feel guilty I haven't practiced in like a year. :(

I LOVE HOLIDAY LIGHTS. That is all there is to say about that.

I am moving this week. Out to the country. This house has been home for ... 2/3 of my life. I am more than a little freaked out.

Trying to remain calm that it will be worth it!

And also remembering that the kiddos at school need me to be there mentally as well as physically this week! Starting some holiday stories. Following up with the class that took home some Flat Gingys over the Thanksgiving week and hopefully hearing what they did. My 3rd grade RTI time group and finishing up our Google Earth Landforms iBook. Hopefully a book order or two coming in? I ordered them FOREVER ago. Or September, anyway.

Favorite tradition? Ham and cheese rolls wrapped in foil and warmed in the over (this is an important part). Hot cocoa (yes, even in TX when sometimes we're just pretending it's cool). Veggies and dip. Raspberry/strawberry jello. Shooting "hoops" from the kitchen table to the trash (the foil the sandwiches were wrapped in). Every year I can remember. Also decorating graham cracker houses. Who can pick just ONE tradition?


  1. Oh goodness! I couldn't even imagine having to pack a house up and move during this time of the year! I hope things go well and you have a smooth move! Good luck!

    1. Thanks. Wasn't necessarily planned this way. The original date the builder gave us was August. Then September. Then October. Then November. Kind of ridiculous.
      A definite first world problem/blessing ... building a new house. But the STRESS!

  2. What are some of your favorite holiday stories you do?

    1. Ha! I'd say come back Thursday cause that's what the post is all about ... but let's be honest. It's a Throwback Thursday repeat of a repeat post. Why wait? Cause while I've seen some great new ones I am being a stick in the mud and still really enjoying older books!

      Dec. Books Redeux

  3. I love your new blog design (I have been away for a bit). I had NO clue you were in TX, too! I wish I could move to the country:) Enjoy the move, it will be worth it in the long run.


    1. Thanks! I was pleased with how it turned out as well.

      And yep! GO SPURS GO!

      I hope so. :/

  4. Oh, I don't envy a move this time of year, but I know you will enjoy the new place.
    Happy December!

  5. I love holiday lights too. I like to drive around when there is a fresh snow and see the lights twinkle at night! Good luck with your move!
