As I said, it's raining like crazy today, and I really miss the snow we had back when I was in Ohio. I'm going home for a few days after Christmas, and I hope to see some then, because I feel without snow...it just doesn't feel Christmasey. :/
My favorite tradition is decorating our tree and taking out the ornaments I had when I was younger. It's so nice to reminisce childhood. :) Last year we had a real tree, but with our new apartment, we have a fireplace and my husband didn't want to risk the tree catching fire. So we got a small 6ft one last weekend and I decorated it. Now I am happy and content. :)
So this week, I have been noticing how wonderful the kiddos' writing has gotten. We started 30 minutes of writing a day about a month ago and use Deanna Jump's Unit from TPT (which I absolutely love)
Here's some pics of them...

I just love it! Well folks, I'm off to brave the rain and do some food shopping. Have a wonderful weekend and great school week ahead!
