Currently ~ December

What a wonderful week! Thrilled that my sister-in-law and her family stayed with us! My daughter and niece are the same age, so got lots of quality time together. It was so fun to listen to them giggle and giggle like 10 year olds should!  My mother-in-law cooked a fabulous turkey with all the trimmings. My one regret, I didn't get my day after turkey sandwich on white bread slathered with mayo. I almost look forward to that sandwich more than the fresh - hot - golden brown - out of the oven turkey!
Next year!

December 1? Is it really? It must be cuz Farley has her Currently posted! 
Link up and join the Currently craze!

Listening - Jinxed the movie with my daughter! Ooo boy! That is some serious bad luck!
(My niece and daughter!)

Loving - All our Christmas decorations! I was really not in the mood to put up directions last weekend. There just seemed to be something wrong with doing it before Thanksgiving, but I'm so glad my husband and daughter pushed me to get it done! Too much going on this next week!

Thinking - Can't wait until this coming Friday and Saturday!
Friday, I'm the guest speaker at UTSA's student teacher induction ceremony. 250 soon to be first year teachers, their family and friends! My stomach is doing flip flops just thinking about it! I've been practicing my speech for days!
Saturday - I'm presenting at the TCEA Google Summit II! Using Google Drawing in the Classroom!
Not only that Todd Nesloney, also known as Tech Ninja Todd, is the Keynote speaker! Super excited to meet him! If you aren't following him, you need to! Recently, he was selected and honored at the White House for Champion of Change and being a "Connected Educator"... so cool!
Saturday evening ... yearly cookie bake!

Wanting - a new blog design/name! I keep saying this, but just need to get going on it. Since, I'm not a 5th grade teacher anymore ... it's got to change! Know any good blog designers that will work with what I have, but redesign the header? Plus, need a new name!

Needing - a cute pair of black boots and a cute pair of brown boots! (The heel on my black boots is broken and my brown boots are way to high for my current position at school. I'll never make it all day!)

Family Tradition - This is my husbands grandmother's recipe . . . she started the tradition of a cookie back. Now we host a cookie bake for friends and family. Everyone brings their own cookie tins and what you make you take home. Look closely at the second ingredient. I try to ignore it! These cookies are sooooo good! Even better frozen!

Have a wonderful Sunday!
