Christmas Questionnaire

I'm linking up with Fabulous in First for this super cute Christmas Questionnaire! 


1. When do you decorate? 
We decorate earlier and earlier each year. This time around, my husband was bitten by the holiday bug super early! We had our tree up the first week in November (I just can't say NO to holiday lights in the evenings  and it was decorated, along with the rest of the house within a week or so. 




2. Elf or no elf? 
We don't have an Elf. When they started becoming popular a few years ago, my husband thought it was "creepy" to tell the kids that a "doll was watching them." So... we never jumped on board! 

3. Christmas Cookies or No Baking for You? 
Growing up, my mom always had "Cookie Fest 1999" or whatever the year was. I'm pretty sure she cranked out 500 dozen cookies each year. We don't make a ton, but we definitely make some. The favorite in our family is our Mint Chocolate Chip Cookies!

4. Favorite Holiday Tradition? 
Driving around looking at Christmas lights in PJs while listening to Christmas music! This year we're going to add some hot chocolate to our journey. Another holiday tradition that has quickly become a favorite is going to Disney World! We are leaving again soon for our 3rd annual trip!

5. Favorite Christmas Movie? 
Both of our kids LOVE Charlie Brown Christmas and Rudolph (or Rust-off as our son calls him). I'm glad they like the classics! 

6. Snow or No Snow? 
I hate snow. Hate it. I'm a sunshine girl stuck in a cold weather state. 

7. Favorite Christmas Song? 
Anything sung by Josh Groan.  

8. Favorite Gifts to Give and Get? 
I love to give personalized gifts to the grandparents "from" our kids. I don't really ask for anything and don't mind not receiving gifts. Christmas is about all the kids in the family and seeing their excitement is the best!

Giving Back


Sunday many TPT sellers have come together and pledged to donate a portion of our sales from the day to a charity of our choice. After losing my mom to breast cancer when I was 20 years old, breast cancer research has become something I fight for. I will donate a portion my earnings to the Breast Cancer Research Foundation. If there's something you've been considering purchasing, please do so tomorrow (from me or anyone on the list below). You'll be helping a huge number of fabulous causes!

Winter FREEBIES

It is getting closer to the holidays and for many of you and that usually means your students are getting a bit antsy. Let's face it... you probably are too! There are SO many wonderful seasonal resources available for you to purchase on TPT (you know that of course) and SO many wonderful freebies!

My logic puzzles have always been a big hit, so I created a free one based on those fabulous Ugly Christmas Sweater parties that seem quite popular these days! You can grab it by clicking the image below.



My wonderful teacher buddies are sharing their freebies with you in the linky below. Click around and grab some goodies to get your students through these next 2-3 weeks!
