It's that time of year!! I am so excited December is here!! I love the Christmas lights and decorations…oh, and it's snuggle weather! I am super looking forward to going to NEW YORK with my sister on December 26. We're gonna freeze our buns off, but so worth it!! Oh, and I also love December because no work for 2 weeks!!! Yippee!!! And….one of my favorite holidays…..New Year's!!
Yes, you better believe I am listening to *Nsync Christmas on Pandora! I'm classy like that :-)
So…I have always thought of getting a mini Christmas tree for my classroom, but always talk myself out of it since I teach middle school :-/. Well, this year, I bought one for ME! I think my kids this year will actually like it. Can't wait to decorate it!
What I love about getting together with my family is playing games on Christmas. We have played Scattergories, Uno, and Catch Phrase gets really loud and crazy! Last year, I surprised the family with a little game of Lefty Elf Christmas Story. I bought little bags and stuffed each bag with candy. The game is super simple: everyone stands or sits in a circle. The story is then read aloud. Every time I said LEFT, they had to pass their gift to the left, and every time I read RIGHT, they passed their gift to the right. Oh, it was a blast!! Definitely lots of laughing! This year, I am thinking of writing our own Lefty Elf Christmas Story with members of our family and funny stories from throughout the year!
