Looky! Looky!


Hello, friends!  And, Happy Thanksgiving to you and yours!

First, I have to show you our first official family photo.  And by “official,” I mean not one that I asked a complete stranger to take after giving him a 30 second tutorial on how to operate a DSLR in the middle of the pumpkin patch while he looks at me like I’m 50 shades of crazy.  Then, the picture is blurry and/or Becks is sticking his tongue out or crossing his eyes.  I kid you not.

I mean, for real, they are SOOOOO handsome!  Love my guys!


And, in the spirit of family photos, guess who we got to meet yesterday?!  You’re going to fah-reak.



Anyway, things are going to be sparse around here for awhile.  Not that they haven’t been, but I have a good reason.  A very, very good reason.  I want to tell you REAL bad, but I’m practicing patience and waiting until the time is right.  I promise to share just as soon as I can.  Now, get your minds out of the maternity ward…

In the meantime, tomorrow is Cyber Monday!  Yay!  I’m planning to blow up TpT tomorrow as I ransack my favorite sellers stores.  My wish list overfloweth.  My shop will also be on sale for 20% – but, if you add TpT’s code (CMT12), you can get an additional 10% off!  YESSSSSSSS!

If you’re school doesn’t celebrate religious holidays or you’re ready to get a head start on your January plans, check out these fun winter-themed activity packs…



Or, if you’re in the mood for some RTI goodies (which are also great for pre-K, ESL/ELL students, or for remediation or acceleration depending on the grade), check out these…



And, here’s my latest for Number Sense #0-20 which I blogged about HERE.


Now, it’s back to grading Academic Team tryout tests (did I mention I’m the new coach?!), while I enjoy our newly decorated holiday home.  LOVE IT. 


Peace, love, and pumpkin pie, friends.  {Oh, yes, I made those pies pictured above.  From scratch.  Holla’!}

Good to hear from you again! That
Becks is growing up so fast!

OK--I hope the time is right very soon because I am not a good or patient person when it comes to waiting on exciting news!

I thought new home!

Mrs. Shelton said...

I'm still going with you are expecting! :) Hoping and praying that is your news. I just ordered that same Merry Christmas banner from Land of Nod. I had to talk myself out of the new tree skirt and stockings. Still not sure I won't go back and get them! Your family pictures are GREAT! We just had ours taken as well, but it's a secret until Christmas so I can't share them all yet!
