wow. happy new year!
I took a deliberate and needed break for a few weeks and I think I’m finally ready to come back.
Here’s a quick recap of highlights, primarily for family (and once again I’m reminded that I’m not much of a Christmas photographer — and actually, this year I’m ok with that. I really enjoyed just being engaged and removed from the picture-taking role)
After I did the 12 days of Christmas here on my blog, I did a 12 day countdown for the kiddos. Easy — posted envelopes with notes, one for each day. Sometimes they got a treat or gift and other times something to use as part of an activity or something. I
know many of you do a variation of this, this is my first time — would definitely do it again. I pasted a small Dec. calendar in my book of lists that kept me on track. fun.
Ok, totally did the send cards to soldiers thing — thanks to Becky’s KOTM cards (btw, check out her new updated site.) Please, lets make these an annual thing (Becky?) I loved this set and all the extra tags, etc.. Since more than half of my official cards have not been sent yet, it was nice to get something out on time — if you’ve expecting a card, don’t give up yet (I haven’t)
gotta run to Trey and Taft’s classrooms.
more later on some fun things happening now and very soon!!
