|I bought some toys and goodies for Toys For Tots.|
|Meanwhile, Bella and Duchess did Sunday their way.|
|The flowers my kids gave me at Friday's concert.|
|The split pea soup I made on Sunday was more of a split pea|
mash. It tasted fine, it just wasn't soup.
|White House ornament on Mom's tree.|
|Santa's already dropped off some stuff...|
|Christmas Mouse has a long tradition in this home.|
|Furby spent a lot of time in the music office this week.|
|Final piano lab grading.|
|You might be a teacher if, while walking around campus, you|
find a white board marker in your pocket.
|Gym selfie. Yep, that's sweat.|
|I HATE when women sit their wet buts down and don't wipe up|
after themselves in the locker room. Ugh.
|It was Ugly Sweater Day at school. I had jingle bells, pompoms,|
and poorly-placed elf hips.
|There were also ball ornament earrings, because why not go|
|From a former student's parent. : )|
|The house is so inviting when I get home.|
|The sun comes up over a Large Suburban High School Day|
One of finals.
|I wore this sweatshirt, which I've had for 19 years.|
|We finally got all of choir's Christmas stuff put away, including|
my first contribution--20 large plastic candy canes.
|I've been receiving a lot of positive feedback on the concert,|
and that makes me feel good.
|From a piano student. *sniffle*|
|I admit it, I called this guy a special snowflake...turns out he|
was waiting for a tow truck.
|Teachers get a lot of gift cards. I don't mind this.|
|Mom, Dad and I watched National Lampoon's Christmas|
Vacation for the first time in ages, and belly laughed like
we hadn't in ages. There was shrieking from laughter.
|Millie doesn't understand Chevy Chase's humor.|
|I didn't have any classes on Friday, but I went in to get some|
work done. Lynn and Furby were feeling festive.
|Worked on my Spring handbook. (Which means taking the fall|
handbook and updating dates.)
|People keep feeding me!|
|Clean desk, left behind for two weeks of break.|
|We had our staff party on Friday night.|
|It was hosted by a couple who live in one of those neighborhoods|
that goes all out.
|Cali Swimmy approves.|
|Classic. So classic.|
|As I approached my colleague's house, imagine how delighted|
I was to see an even BETTER Peanuts display. Love!!!
|Saturday with the Tortellini Sisters.|
|Happiness is chocolate.|
