Snafu of the week!

These are my confessions.....

I love Lindor chocolates.

I bought a bag each for my children's teachers.

They kept taunting me from my counter.

I thought to myself, "I could keep one bag for myself, and divi up the other bag."

All I Want For Christmas

I linked up for this fun tidbit of all I want for Christmas.
What would be the perfect gift from. . . 
1. Students
2. Kiddies
3. Husband/boyfriend
4. Parents/Family
5. BFF
6. Santa
1. Students...not that I need anything from them, but gift cards are always helpful for supplies!  
2. Kiddies...the BEST handmade artwork they can do, because we all know they have already started making it, and decorating the envelope to put it in, and the wrapping paper they wrapped it in, and the gift bag they put the entire thing in.  It's all decorated.  It's all for me!
3. Husband....jewelry....a maid....a vacation for 2....every Sims game that I am missing....money....the honey do list completed...and that should complete the list.  But we already got each other new phones for Christmas. Sigh.
4. Parents/Siblings....I'm good.  Just send stuff for the kiddies. 
5. BFF....A visit from her would be the awesome dawsome!  Haven't seen her since the spring.
6. Santa....see the list above at husbands.

Today we celebrated this awesome day in history by counting to twelve...a lot. With my older ones we figured out it would not happen until Jaylynn was 45 and Jorden was 43. We won't get into my age...

We made these awesome Christmas trees for the 12 days of Christmas. We counted, cut, and pasted green strips down. I wrote the numbers and had the kids see what they could recognize.

Then we did finger paints and counted to 12.

My older kids wanted to finger paint, I wanted them to write different math ways to get to the number on the tree. You could also use different craft objects like buttons, stickers, foam shapes, and others.

P.s. this is my first upload from my awesome new phone, the Samsung S3
