Long Time, No See

I know, I know. I've been missing in action for quite a while. Here I am! December is busy, what can I say?!

I'm on Winter break now. I took last week to celebrate Christmas, spend time with my family, and catch up around the house. This week will be all about getting ahead for school. I hope!

We did do some fabulous stuff this last month though. I was so busy trying to get everything done that I didn't take many pictures though! I know. I'm terrible.

I'll backtrack a little and show you what we did though. For Thanksgiving we made our own pumpkin pies. Cuteness!
 We started out by crushing up graham crackers for the crust. They LOVED this part!

 Then we got our filling all ready.

 Mixed it all up.

 Filled our crusts.

 Then completed the pies with whipped cream, of course!

We did LOTS of other things. We learned about that Bossy E, became Pilgrims and Indians, learned all about the Mayflower, and so much more.

Let's skip to December. It was filled with present making, adjective finding, Christmasy things, Polar Express, and so much more. I wish I could show you more, but alas, I was a terrible teacher photographer.

Look at the super cute presents we made though!! LOVE! Don't mind my messy area. Don't try to say yours doesn't look like that the day before the Christmas party, too!  We did Handprint Santas, Melted Glue Snowmen, Thumbprint Reindeer, and Frosty kids. We also made a handprint calendar, but no picture of that. I love them. I hope their parents did too.

Finally, I made something for you! Unit 4's Wonders Selection Tests. Hopefully, I'm ahead of you! I hope they are helping you out! Enjoy!

Maybe you'll see me again before the break is over!

Be fun and fabulous!
