I'm so happy another weekend has arrived :) I hope I can survive one more week of work next week before vacation. It seems like it should be easiest to survive the week before vacation but with children involved, it's the hardest week of the year! Way too much excitement all around. There are some exciting things to look forward to though- our winter concert is on Friday and I love listening to all the kids sing. Then, we will be sharing an awesome slideshow completed entirely by my amazing classroom assistant with the parents. She scanned in the kids drawing/writing about their family traditions and then she recorded their voices saying what they wrote.
Yesterday I had the following conversation with one of my girls. She LOVES fashion and always wears crazy outfits with even crazier accessories.
G: What are you doing after school today?
me: Actually, I'm going to a party for teachers.
G: Are you going to wear... that? (looks my outfit up and down)
me: haha, no I was going to go home and change first.
G: Oh good... you should wear a dress.
Haha. Nothing better than having your Friday casual outfits insulted by a 6 year old. I'm hoping when I wear my sparkly Uggs next Friday she will change her opinion on my wardrobe completely. She may even want to borrow them.
In other fun kid news, I had my annual (well second year in a row) Gingerbread Decorating Party for some of my former students. As always, I can't show pictures of the kids, but I took some others.
The Pre-Party Set Up:
Amazing Kiddo Creations:
Oh and of course, my husband the marshmallow gun master:
Good times. Even with an all out candy war, the clean up was still easy thanks to my mom's disposable table cloth and the help of the kids who basically found all the run away candy (let's hope).
Do you have any holiday season traditions?
