some of my favorite things

I have been such a slacker lately and for that I apologize! I have been so busy browsing blogs, "stealing" ideas, downloading amazing freebies from even *more* amazing blogland colleagues, and "pinning," that I've neglected this sweet little blog.  I also have FAILED to remember to bring my camera to school to take any pictures.  Since I've slacked, I wanted to share some of my favorites from Pinterest that I found for the Holidays! 
You may not know this but I love am all kinds of obsessed with fingerprint art! We are making these {in a smaller version} to go into our scrapbooks.

Here is another fun {and free} Grinch tag that I made for my kiddos for Grinch Day! Super cute, easy to do, cheap, and the kids went nuts for them!
These will be our snack next Wednesday. Yes, sadly we are in school until next Wednesday.  It's rather tragic.  I mean what do they expect my sweet firsties to learn when they are all revved up for Christmas!!! :)  Nonetheless, these will be a tasty treat and they're so easy to make!

This is also something that we will be doing in my classroom on Wednesday.  It's a must see.  Lots of fun holiday themed games and ideas for parties.  You can use them play them at home with your kiddos or at school! Or store it away for next year! 


If you have not allowed Pinterest into your life, you MUST!  So many wonderful ideas that you can organize {my FAVORITE part of it all} on your virtual boards.  No more stressing over where you saw that one recipe or racking your brain to remember the name of that amazing blog!  Just PIN IT!  :)  

The rest of my weekend will be spent taking Christmas {card} pictures.  Something I've been begging my husband to do for the past THREE weeks.  Why is it that they {husbands} are so repulsed by the thought of getting dressed up to take Christmas pictures?! :)  Is it just mine?! 
After that I will be spending countless hours scrapbooking a recipe book for my father.  He's an avid hunter.  The book is literally all on venison and includes recipes that I found on Pinterest! I'm telling you, it's the place to visit!
Then, when I can't take it anymore I'm off to attach 243 candy canes to Candy Cane Grams that were sold as a fundraiser for Relay for Life! 
Busy day...I'd say so! 

So excited to be SO close to our holiday break! SO jealous of those who are already there!  Happy Sunday!
