|Getting a ride to cut down the tree!|
This weekend was full of holiday joy. Saturday J and I took the high school youth group from our church to Amish country to cut down a tree for the sanctuary. Afterwards we roasted hot dogs and made s'mores by the fire at the tree farm and drank hot cocoa.
Sunday was my band's holiday concert. It was a more-than-sold-out crowd! Amazing :) One of my students came with her daughter and granddaughter. It was so sweet and really meant a lot to me. And she said they all enjoyed the concert.
|This is the one!|
Jamberry consultant!) and finally got to do some holiday crafting this weekend. I'm sending four headbands to my favorite little Erin as soon as I can get to the post office.
|I make them in grown-up sizes, too :)|
This semester is rapidly coming to an end and I'm seriously drowning in standardized tests and paperwork. But we are also having a lot of fun in class this week. In my multi-level classes we are talking about different ways to describe people (particularly appearance.) The workbook had them reading short personal ads, so I had them write their own. I told them it could be about them or they could make up a person. The results were quite funny!
|Love all of the random topics that come up in my beginner class!|
|All the supplies for our holiday party fit nearly in my Thirty-One Utility tote :)|
|A small sampling of the goodies! Recipes from Hungary, China, Bangladesh and Russia.|
We've also been having holiday potlucks in my classes for the last day of the term. I love, love, love these parties and seeing what my students bring in! All sorts of amazing and interesting food from around the world. And, man, can some of my students cook!
See that on the near end there? That's one of my favorite holiday recipes. A Starbucks Cranberry Bliss Bar knockoff recipe. It's pretty amazing. Stay tuned to this blog for the recipe in my next post! :)
