High Five for Friday

In middle school, my Spanish teacher would also say the same phrase each Friday.

She said:
"Hoy es viernes.
Un aplauso para el Viernes!"

Translated as:
Today is Friday!
An applause for Friday!!

That is how I feel today!


Here are few things that made my top 5:

1. Getting to do a Google Hangout with my niece for her 1st birthday!!!!

2. Some friends and I are going to see The Hobbit tonight.
My movie coupon is for buy a popcorn, get a drink for free.

Ohhhh ohhhh!!
(cue baby mama!)

3. We made some awesome ornaments in class this week for the
kids to take home as gifts. 

They'll look something like this...

4. Seeing Si dressed up like an Elf on Duck Dynasty....

5.  My school gave out these AWESOME coupon books. 
You bet they have coupons on movie popcorn
and Brick Oven.

Best. School. Ever!

Counting my blessing during the holidays. 
Really looking forward to some RR this next week with 
my family. 

It is much needed :)

Have a good weekend!

It is about time for an update!

This week has been so fun! 
We have started to explore how different countries and 
cultures celebrate Christmas. 

I love to travel, so I told my kids that each day this week, 
we would be "going" to a new country. 

We made Passports...

They get a stamp after each country visit.

Discussed traditions...

Las Posadas
Yule Log
St. Lucy's Day
Father Christmas
etc, etc, etc

Sampled some treats...

Swiss Rolls as Yule Logs

Cinnamon Rolls for St. Lucia
(store bought of course!)

Gingerbread Men for Germany

and made some crafts.

I really enjoying hearing them say things like:

"Remember when we went to France and saw the Eiffel Tower?"

"When we were in Mexico, I think I lost my easer."

Their imaginations and excitement for Christmas is contagious.

It has definitely made this time of year a little more special for me :)

Oh by the way...

T minus 8 days until I will be sitting riiiiiight about here.

Can't come soon enough :)

Happy Holidays, everybody!
