It’s that time again!  Time for CURRENTLY with the fabulous Farley over at Oh Boy 4th Grade.

Screen Shot 2014-11-30 at 9.36.17 PMHave I told you yet that I LOVE Christmas?!?!  It’s my FAVORITE time of year.  I love giving gifts and watching as people open them.  I also love to shop…so this gives me a good excuse to do BOTH of those things!

With that…I’m listening to a Christmas movie playing on the TV…sort of.  It’s what’s on in the background as I surf Instagram.  😉  My little man is also sitting next to me watching YouTube videos of people unwrapping new Mario Kart toys.  He’s a little obsessed, I think…

And…yeah…I am LOVING that Christmas is coming soon.  I always get so bummed when it’s over because I know I have to wait so long for it to come again.  Funny thing is…it comes sooner and sooner every year.  Hmmm…how exactly does that happen?  I guess time flies when you’re having fun.  That MUST be it!

So…life is good!  Hot chocolate.  Christmas tunes on the radio.  Christmas movies on the TV.  Houses enveloped in lights and decor.  The weather getting colder.  Yeah.  Life is good!

However…I COULD use an extra day or two off from school to soak up some more time with my family.  It’s been SOOO nice to have some time off FILLED with family time.

Confession.  I don’t have my Christmas tree up.  Why?  *Ugh*  The stand is apparently not sturdy enough to hold our heavy tree…and it has a serious lean!  We’ve been looking for one to replace it but can’t find one.  The hubs is going to work on it tomorrow to try to get it at least somewhat straight…then it’s GO TIME!  😀

In the spirit of giving, I’m putting a link to my Figuring Out Words posters that I have in my store.  It’s yours…for free.  :)  I hope you and your kiddos enjoy it as much as we do!!!  You can snag it here.

If you haven’t gone over to Farley’s blog, be sure to do so!  There are so many interesting teacher bloggers out there that link up each month for this fun linky partay!




  1. YAY

  2. This is why I L-O-V-E Currently…there are always multiple people thinking, wanting, feeling, ect. ect. the same thing as me! First, Christmas/Winter Holidays is my absolute favorite time of year. Much like you I get SUPPEERRRR (exaggerated a bit) bummed when the time comes and goes! This year I have vowed to enjoy every moment of every day. That said, I also need to get my tree and decorations up! Thanks for giving the posters and Happy Holidays!

  3. Hope you get your tree up soon. I am loving mine this year. I hear on you on family time. It is my favorite part of the holidays. A few extra days would be nice. But I am excited to see the kids tomorrow. Hope you have a great week!

  4. I love that everyone loves Christmas time as much as I do!! I have been wanting to decorate since before Halloween!! Happy December :)

  5. Thanks for the strategy posters! I use these with my kindergartners. They have become experts in stretching words.

    Merry Christmas!
