Christmas - The Most Wonderful Time of the Year!!!!

Wow! Has this year flown by or what?!  I have had soooo many blog ideas to post, but time is just slipping away! (And my husband says I am a "Blog Addict" and I need an intervention, so he has been hogging the computer or having my children hog the computer, so I can't "feed" my addiction. I manage to sneak in a few minutes, but then he notices and starts shoving  pushing gently moving me out of the computer chair, so I won't "feed" my addiction. Ahhh... to have a husband who understands... That is my Christmas Wish!!!) Anywhoooo.... He is hunting (smiles!) so the kids are eating pizza and watching Prep and Landing and I am blogging! Wahooooo!

I had two wonderful Bloggy Friends bless me with the Sunshine Award! Thank you Crisscross Applesauce in First Grade and Climbing the Monkey Bars! Y'all Rock!!!  Wow! Y'all picked little ol' me! :) Smiles are on my face as I say Sunshine! (I love the song You are my Sunshine and every time I hear the word I smile!)
Here are the rules for this award:
1.  Thank the person(s) who gave this award and if you would like to, write a post about it.
2. Answer the following questions below.
3. Pass the award to 10-12 fabulous bloggers, link their blogs and let them know you awarded them.
My answers:
-  Favorite color? I don't have one, but when someone asks I say either Pink or Purple
-  Favorite animal? Koala bear :)
-  Favorite number? 8
-  Favorite drink? Hot Tea
-  Facebook or Twitter?   Facebook (but as Holly of Crisscross said "blogging has sort of replaced that addiction though!")
-  Your passion? God, My Family, My Love of Teaching, and Blogs!!!!!!!
-  Giving or getting presents? I SOOOO love to give!
-  Favorite day?  Saturday
- Favorite flower? Daisy
Wow.... I can only pass this on to 10-12 blogs? Really???
Well.... If I can only do 10-12, here goes:
Now... To talk more about Christmas! (Oh - Prep and Landing is over, thank goodness for Phineas and Ferb Christmas! OK - don't judge me because my kiddos are being "babysat" by the TV while I blog - yes I am an addict! Isn't  admission the first step in recovery? Except, I don't want to recover!)

This week my class read the book Santa's New Suit   by Laura Rader.  Then we talked about what Santa should wear for Christmas. Then I sent them home with an adorable Santa in his underwear and they get to dress him up!  I love this family activity! When I get some finished Santa pictures, I will take pictures and post them so you can see how cute they are! At right is a picture of the Santa I use, but I have no idea where I got it from so I really
don't think I can share it. Anyone have any idea where I can buy some clipart with Santa in his undies? I do have a letter to the parents I send home I could share (if it wasn't at school!).  I will have to post that later!
Teaching Blog Addict is having a favorite Holiday Book Linky party. For more wonderful Holiday books head over there!

The Santa's New Suit idea is ADORABLE!! I just read that story this week - will have to file it away for next year. What a great idea!! And no judgment about your kids and TV. You've got to do what you've got to do!!! I suppose I am your enabler and not your sponser in this addiction. ;)
