Catching up again...

Good afternoon. I have been a bad blogger again.  I'm sorry!  I'm not going to put up excuses. Just haven't done it.

So here I am again playing catch up.

I received my ornaments from Amy's ornament swap over at Bumble Bee Lane and I love them.  I put them on my tree today and promise to take pictures and post them soon.  What a fun swap!

We are counting down the days until we are out of school. Five more days!  This week will be fun.  The kindergartners are putting on a Christmas play.  They will be busy practicing this week and then a big Christmas party on Friday.  We are busy in our class making ornaments and gifts for the parents.  I am still loving working there.  So much fun.

The weather has been so rainy we haven't got to do much decorating outside but we did manage to get the playhouse done.  It is so adorable.  I could live out there.

Here is the outside.  We added wreaths to the windows, garland and lights to the banisters and lights around the poles.  We also added a sparkly wreath to the door.I love how it turned out.

Come on in!

Darbee will greet you from upstairs.

Inside, we put up a tree.  It looks so cozy.

We also changed around a bit.  We added a large bookshelf and moved the chair up to the loft to create a little reading nook.

We added two pillows to the bench that you see as you walk in the door.  

Darbee enjoys being out there.  We want to have an "open house" for her friends to come play soon.  The weather just needs to cooperate so us moms can sit on the porch. 

This morning, we went to Breakfast with Santa at hubby's work.  They do this every year and it is wonderful.  We always look forward to it.
The decorations were beautiful this year.  

Darbee had so much fun doing crafts, eating her favorite, Chick-fil-A and seeing Santa.
She made an ornament.

And decorated a gigantic sugar cookie!


There was a nice fire to keep us warm and cozy!

And best of all, Santa!

We are headed out to a Polar Express party this evening.  Looking forward to it!
I hope all of you are having a good weekend.

Please keep my Mama in your prayers still.  She is having another procedure on Tuesday.  Pray that this one works and she will be feeling better soon. I miss her so much!

Until next time...
