13 in '13!

 
I'm so excited to join Hadar, Kristen, and Traci in this fun {annual} linky party!
Be sure to grab the button and link up at any of their blogs!
 
 In one word...LEGGINGS!
The most comfortable form of clothing on Earth.
Whether they are fleece lined, printed, or just plain they are none the less amazing!
 

 
 What can I say.
Not much of a movie buff.
I like my comedies and dramas, but unless they are a classic, I really don't remember much of them!

 
 
 The hubs and I don't have too many shows that we follow, but when we absolutely laugh our butts off to is...
 
 
 I. Love. Food.
This place has every type of food, drink, and dessert you can imagine.
Hands down best ever!
 
Scuba diving.
One word...HATE!
Didn't even make it through the classes.
I will stick with snorkeling. Thanks!
 
 Worth EVERY penny and my feet's new best friends!
 
 Well since I've pinned 3,625 things...this may be a hard choice.

Proud blogger moment!

 Both my best friend and sister in law were pregnant this year and recently both had healthy baby girls!
 

 
 
To root  myself deeper in Christ.
 
PATIENCE.
 
 
 
What a FUN way to take a stroll down the memory lane of 2013!

Elf in the Classroom Says Goodbye!

 
After 15 days of elfin' around...this teacher is DONE!
Our elf Ollie will be missed but I can definitely wait 365 more days to do it all again.
 
Here's our elf in action during his last week in our classroom!
 
Showing us his love for reading! 

 Trying to make us laugh at our class picture! What a funny guy.
 
We didn't have any new sight words this week so he decided to make up his own!
 
 
Showing his Polar Express enthusiasm!
 
 
Getting into more trouble...he found our Band-Aid stash!

Our last day together.
He left us a sweet note and a treat!

Gifts for Students with a FREEBIE!

You'll find this post is short and sweet,
an idea or two for a really nice treat.
So grab your pen and some paper too,
to jot down these ideas for a student near to you.
 
 
A pencil for writing all through the year,
a book to bring you Christmas cheer.
A 'no shoes' pass and stickers too,
a candy cane and chocolate will have to do.
Top it off with a Merry sack,
Christmas break is near...no turning back!
 
 
So here's a gift from me to you,
bringing Christmas joy and good times too!
 
Here is a FREE printable of the poem {in the middle of the pictures} that goes along with the gift.
