This and That

Happy Thursday to you!  This has been a really LOOONNGGG week so far.  I think we are just so ready for Christmas break!  {7 more days}

A great thing from this week:  we were able to get my garage door fixed Monday evening, so my car was freed from the garage!  #hallelujah

Had a few random things I wanted to share with you all today.  Enjoy 🙂

Tuesday I wanted to link-up with Andrea for Show and Tell Tuesday, but I just didn’t have the time to blog.  If I showed you my mountain of papers I have been grading lately, you would understand why.  Anyways, Tuesday’s topic was to share your Christmas decorations.  I didn’t take a lot of pictures and don’t decorate a lot, but I do LOVE our Christmas tree and stockings, so I wanted to show those to you.


Tuesday evening we had our first Christmas party to attend this holiday season.  We went to Teen Challenge’s Christmas banquet and had a wonderful evening together.  Chris’s dad is the executive director of Adult and Teen Challenge in Cape Girardeau.  It is a WONDERFUL ministry that helps tons of men break their addictions.  I am so thankful to get to witness the wonderful testimonies of how God is changing these men’s lives.


Elizabeth had a special living biography project at school yesterday.  They had to choose a famous person to research, dress like them, and then give a speech about their person to different classes.  I was able to go on my planning time and hear her give her speech.  She chose to be Shawn Johnson (Olympic gymnast).  She did a great job and I was so proud of her!


We have been enjoying a lot of hot cocoa at our house this week since it has gotten colder.  Emily won a basket at the Teen Challenge Christmas party from Chocolate Works with tons of good stuff in it.  Last night we were able to enjoy a cup of hot chocolate with chocolate spoons!  The girls thought this was the best thing ever.  I love their enthusiasm for the little things.


I hope you all have a great Thursday!  We have a school Christmas play to attend tonight and then it’s a weekend full of cheer and more birthday celebrating.

See you tomorrow for my Friday Favorites!
