Looking for some new blogs?

Merry Christmas blogging friends.  It has been a busy Christmas season for my family as I am sure it has been for yours as well.  However, I have found a little time here and there for some blog stalking and pinterest.  Boy have I found some wonderful ideas to use when  I get back to school.  Here is a sneak peak at one idea I found (Sorry, I didn't jot down where it come from...remember...I am learning at all this blogging stuff).

Snowflake Crayon Resist
(Isn't it beautiful?)

Anywho, here is my Christmas gift for you!  Two new blogs!  You might want to check them out.  Both sites have been created by co-workers at my school who are incredible first grade teachers.  I was so lucky to work with them last year when I taught my K-1 multi-age class.  They have some wonderful ideas to share.

Lastly, I will end with some photos from my Christmas cruise (just one of the events that kept me so busy this Christmas).

My kids at Blue Lagoon's Aqua Park.

My kids at Blue Lagoon...so pretty!

My daughter loved the aqua trampoline.  Isn't she a cutie!

My husband and I drinking from a coconut in Freeport.

My family at the Southern Most Point in Key West.

Just one of the amazing pictures I took while visiting the Butterfly Conservatory in Key West.

we just celebrated our 21st wedding anniversary while on the cruise.

Me RELAXING on the ship!

Anyone ready for a cruise now?  Just let me know!

Happy Blogging!



  1. I am so jealous! I live in South Dakota and even though we don't have snow this year it's still cold and dreary! My family is heading to Disney World in February and can't wait for the warm weather! Can I wear flip flops in February in Florida?? I LOVE flip flops and miss them SO much right now!

  2. Hello! Thank you for following my blog! I am new to the process and am happy you found me. I LOVE that you and your co-workers work together like a cohort! How wonderful that you all worked together and made your blog buttons....I found that hard also. A WONDERFUL blog that I don't see on your site that would give you some great info is The Organized Classroom Blog. She has something called the Teaching Blog Traffic School (listed down on her right side as a sister site). You only pay $37 and you have access to numerous helpful video tutorials on how to bring more traffic to your site. If you don't purchase the videos, she can still provide you with an amazing amount of free info. I highly recommend her! I will be adding your button as well as that of your co-workers. I'd love if you come on over to add mine as well. Have a great day!

  3. I tried to grab your button twice and it did not show up for some reason. I did put myself as a follower of your blog.

  4. Michelle...you can wear flip flops all year long in Florida. We do...even when it is bitter cold, which doesn't happen often. Christina, I'm not sure why my button isn't working. I will have to check that out. You are the first to mention it.

    Thanks for following. And thanks for the information too.
