Feeling Crafty

Maybe it is the Christmas spirit, or just the time off for Thanksgiving, but I am feeling my crafty side taking over me. So, these are some of the crafty things I am planning on making:
Turkeys for thanksgiving!

Thanks to for the idea!
I love these reindeer pops for Christmas as well:

Plus, I am excited to get started on Christmas gifts! Happy Crafting to all of my blogging friends!!!

Happy Thanksgiving!!!!

Its time for my annual thankful blog.....
I am so happy to have a job that I LOVE. I mean it - I love it!
I recently moved, and my new place comes with a private bathroom and a walk in closet - both of which I have never had. I LOVE THEM BOTH!!!
I am grateful for visiting teaching. I have just been assigned a new partner - who is incredibly sweet. I also have a new visiting teacher - who totally lifted my spirits on Sunday.
I love today's technology! I mean, I have always been a little behind the times... but I love my cell phone, my digital camera and blogging!
I am grateful for my family. I learn so much from them!
I am grateful for great friends - to make life fun!!!
I am grateful to be single and to have like a new crush every other day!
I am grateful for my freedom - and to live in a world where anyone can do anything that they put their mind to doing.
I am grateful for repentence and forgiveness... because lets face it - I screw up.. :)
Lets just face it - Life is Good!
Happy Thanksgiving!!! Gobble, gobble, gobble :)

Long time no blog.....

I have not blogged for a little bit.... I blame it on adjusting to teaching. I love it! I am amazed at how much time I need to prepare...... I am grateful for:
1. An amazing Kindergarten teacher next door. Seriously, she helps me sooooo much!
2. A principal who is not only a fabulous principal - but also super supportive.
3. The internet - can I just say that I do not know how teachers taught without the internet at their fingertips??? I love,
4. I have a super class! There are a few behavior problems, but really, they are great!!!
5. A super PTA. Seriously- they are wonderful. They created a school wide behavior plan - which is common among teachers - pulling cards. The great part is that they made a chart for every class. This saved me as a new teacher with practically nothing prepared when I started.

So, I am asking for some help.... I collect box tops. Any box tops would be appreciated. :) I could also use your old magazines.

Living the dream is harder than it seems... :)
