I have to add a couple of other things I love! I love Barbara's Blinkies! They are so easy to put on your blog! All you have to do is grab her code. Grab it by highlighting the entire code in the box under the blinkie you like. press the ctrl key and hold it down as you press the c key on your keyboard. Go to your blog layout and click on "add gadget"  scroll down until you find HTML/Java Script.  In the title box you can add a special message or leave it blank. Click in the content box and press the ctrl key and the "v" key at the same time. Be sure to save and go look at how awesome your blinkie looks in your sidebar! 

I love Laurie's "elf" that is really a hedgehog. I enjoy finding out what mischeif that guy creates for Laurie. She already has 36 mischief makers in her class, so what's one more!

I love when one of my students spontaneously combusts into a Christmas carol during seat work time and all the others join in! It's the such a wonderful time to teach and learn about love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control! 


  1. Thanks for sharing the link for the blinkies! I've already added a blinkie to my own blog! Merry Christmas!
