Merry Christmas!!!!

Hey everyone!!!  Merry Christmas!  I wanted to post a picture of the ornaments that my students made for their parents.  Since they are Santa ornaments, I figured this was literally my last chance to post them!  :)   I had a wonderful time celebrating Christmas with my family yesterday...  They are the best family any girl could ever ask for!!!  :)  I hope everyone has a very Merry Christmas and a great New Year (if I don't post again before then)!

I told the kids they could spread their fingers apart (like the one on the left) or they could keep their hand closed (right) when they traced their hand.  I thought these came out really cute, and all you need is some cardstock, crayons, and cotton balls!  Doesn't get any easier than that!  :)

Before I end this post, I will leave you with a few crazy pictures that my mom and I took at the Apple Store.  We were waiting for her iPhone to be fixed and we started playing with the photo program on their computer...  This is what happened!!!  :)

First we took a normal one....

This one is crazy!  It looks like my mom has an alien on her finger, and I look like I have a gazelle running up my cheek!

Hope these can spread some more Holiday cheer!  Merry Christmas to the best blogger friends in the world!  You guys are awesome and I appreciate all of you!  :)

P.S.  I just added a "Follow Me by E-mail" option on the right side of the screen...  Hope it works!  :)

Thank You Card for Physical Therapy

Hey everyone!  Brace yourselves....  I actually made a card!!!!  :)  Woo hoo!!!!  My mom came over today and asked if I could help her make a thank you card for her last day of physical therapy.  I told her "no problemo" and this is the little beauty that we came up with!  She had knee surgery back in August, so you can see that this little skeleton comes complete with a titanium knee cap!  :)  Hope you enjoy!

Holiday Fun!!! :)

Hey everyone!!!!  I haven't been able to craft in such a long time!  I have been so busy with things at work, and now that I have my car back I'm rarely ever home.  I am making it my goal to start making more cards!!!  I am hoping with my upcoming vacation that I will have more time for using the Cricut (it's okay Cricut I still love you)!  Here are just a couple of the things I have been up to...

We had our annual Jingle Jam at work, and my students dressed up as little Santas and sang "Must be Santa".  It was sooooo cute!  They were so proud of themselves and they had to perform their song 3 times in front of 3 huge crowds!  They weren't even nervous!  I think I was more nervous than they were...  A few years ago my aide and I came up with this little costume to make for them to wear during their performance and I think it's just the cutest thing ever!  I took this picture of my niece wearing the costume...

I can't even express how cute it was to see all of these little Santas on the stage!  I think some of them actually thought they were Santa!  :)  They were so excited about their costumes that they didn't even want to take them off when we went home!

Yesterday I made a bunch of cookies and candy to give out to my friends...  Here is the cart full of goodies that my friend Sarah and I turned into holiday deliciousness!  :) 

Well everyone I hope to be up and crafting soon!  I haven't forgotten about you guys (or this blog), just been super busy!!!  See you soon, and I hope your holidays are going great!  :)
