Day 29

Today I made a new set of calendars that sit by my computer. I did this last year and they have been very handy to have right there. I need to remember this earlier, because I think they would make a good Christmas gift. I downloaded the templates here  , just added my own digital paper and quotes.

Day 29

This is one of the last things that I put up, my Christmas books. We love reading all the books during the month of December.

Day 26

Today we had to take down our Christmas Tree. These are some of the ornaments that we have, every year we give a new ornament to each girl, it is really fun to look back over the years and see what and think why we gave it.

Day 26

We went to Boise to go furniture shopping.NOT.FUN. It ididn't end up taking too long, but it really isn't that much fun. We went to a couple stores to get a start on next year's Christmas. If we do the twelves days of Christmas for each family, it takes a lot of stuff and requires that we get good deals. We didn't find near as much as last year, but we got started.

Merry Christmas

Day 25

It seemed to be a techy Christmas. I wish I had taken a picture of everyone that had iPods and iPads playing on them. We had a great time playing around with FaceTime. Now to just figure out the iMessage.

I bought these lanterns in Idaho Falls before Thanksgiving and I LOVE them. They have been so fun. I finally put some Christmas balls in them. I really like how they turned out.

Day 17

This is what our Christmas tree has looked like since the day after Christmas---pretty isn't it...only half the lights work...grrr.

So, I decided to actually get it decorated today. I really don't like decorating trees. I didn't put hardly any decorations on it. But, it is decorated. And, it will be easy to take down!!!

Ice Fishing

Day 16

We had an ugly Christmas Sweater Contest at school today. Now really, I don't own an ugly Christmas sweater ---never have and never will. There was NO way I was going to pay money for one and I couldn't bring myself to buy something from DI to wear. So, we decided as a team, that we would design our "ugly sweaters" to be the same. We went to Wal-Mart and found the ugliest thing we could. The funny thing is my niece was with us and she LOVED all these colors, and glitter and sparkle. I'm pretty sure I could make the headbands and sell them. This is totally, not my thing, and I most certainly did not wear it all day, although the other two teachers did. It was amazing some of the ugly sweaters people found.

Day 16

A dance recital that seemed to last forever.

This is what I am using for my Advent Calender this year. Each day the girls take turns getting to take the number off, they love it. We made these a few years back and it is probably my favorite count down.
