Thursday December 15, 2011 Thursday afternoon we had a special all school assembly outside on our basketball courts...as a school we raised so much money & did so awesome on both of the fall fundraisers that we earned this totally awesome BMX bike show.
Friday December 16, 2011 In Germany (of our Holidays Around the World) the students learned about the Christmas Tree...they were able to decorate their own tree and then 'snow' paint it using an actual bough of a Christmas Tree...I must say that this was one of my fav projects of the season; I just loved how they turned out!
Sad to say that they lost with .01 seconds on the clock...bummer!

Monday night I finished up the finishing touches of my students' presents for their parents. They made snowflake ornaments with their pictures on them. They glittered them too. I was putting the hangers on them with my hot glue gun! They turned out so pretty!
Tuesday December 20, 2011 Tuesday was my class Holiday Celebration and gingerbread decorating day! We had lots of fun getting messy! I also received some gifts...this clock was a gift from 4 families...isn't it amazing?! In the 15 years or so I have been teaching this is the first time I have received something so touching...I love it!

Last day of school for the calendar year 2011...YaY! Brendan also designed, built & decorated a gingerbread house in his class! I think he did a great job!
Later that night was the annual cookie exchange I always attend...SO.MUCH.FUN. 20 ladies talking laughing and eating...it's gotta be a good time! I came home with about 9 dozen yummy kinds of cookies! (not like I need anymore cookies or anything...but oh my yumminess!)

A new indoor trampoline place opens up by our house next week...we were fortunate enough to be invited to the friends and family pre-opening event. The boys were able to jump for about 2 hrs for free...they had such a blast! This place is way cool...a huge jump space, 2 dodge ball courts, a basketball court, and a foam pit! Next time I'm jumping!!
And keeping with tradition with opening presents from out of state family, the boys were able to open their gifts from Gramma & Papa, and Aunt Jenni & Uncle Brett.; here they are enjoying their gifts...Brendan got Skylanders for the Wii and Colin got City Legos Space Station from Gramma & Papa and movie tickets from Brett & Jenni...Thanks everyone!
Join in with Sara...It's not to late to join the fun!
