Lil' G's Holiday Party

Yesterday was Gray's holiday party. The one I am in charge of since I am the HM. Homeroom Mom. SO, my pictures are LACKING folks. Can't host and shoot I guess.
Despite that, the kids had so much fun! Their lovely teacher got them all their very own Minnie the elf, plus the Llama, Llama Red Pajama Book- and the crowd went wild!

This is her extreme joy face- smiling so big she gets cute squinty eyes.

Then we made dried okra into candy canes. Remember when I had that monster okra in the garden? Well, it was put to a use.

We also made foam Christmas tree ornaments they decorated in foam stickers. I love foam stickers and foam forms. Easy peasy, no glue!

Then the kiddos had a book exchange with each other. They all wrapped the books, themselves, away from the others. Then they played a game like hot potato and hand the books off- then you had to the keep the one you ended up with, NO trading. Hee hee. They were all the same book. So, so funny when they figured that out!
Big G's party is later today. Maybe I can get more pics there.

Fourth post this week! Yay! I missed yesterday, but the aforementioned post is my excuse.

WFMW: The best place to SAVE!

Three days in a row I am posting! Hot diggety!! Another favorite bloggy carnival! WE ARE THAT FAMILY hosts Works for Me Wednesday. It is an awesome place, check it out!

I feel compelled to EXCLAIM to ya'll my love for It has saved me so much money this past year. I saved $110 on a stay at Great Wolf Lodge for heavens sake. That alone had me sold! No one is even twisting my arm or giving me cash to say so either!!

I've also used it to save over $10 in photo orders at Walgreens just this past week, gotten some wicked cheap pizza deals, saved at sites I didn't even know you could save at. I love it. I head there first for coupon codes. Just type in the place, and it will bring up all there is- and give you a % chance that it will work! There are also grocery coupons, printable coupons, and a community section.

Try this out! It WFM!

Christmas Home Tours

Christmas Tour of Homes with The Nester

Some very favorite decor bloggers, above, are hosting Christmas home tours (of blogs, that is) over at their wonderful sites, respectively. Just click on the buttons above to see hundreds more! BUT DON'T click till you're done here of course. 'Cause you'd be missing out! This past year, one of the home tours brought thousands of people to visit my blog- ALL YEAR long. BooMama hosted EE last year. People still come over all the time from her place.

So, welcome to the Southern family Christmas. (yes, that is our last name.) Warning. I really like nutcrackers and white lights. And rhyming.

T'was the week before Christmas and all through the house, not a creature was stirring-

Not even a mouse....(see, it even says so on my favorite Christmas pillow)

The stockings were hung by both chimney's with care,

In hopes that St. Nick would soon be here.

And, really that's all of the poem that goes with my post, but

I don't want you to think I'm not the host with the most.

This tree, it's my favorite so far that we've had. It's 10 feet tall and for that I am glad!

It makes me smile every time it lights up, and we get to decorate it with ornaments & such.

This year there is a new tree in our home. It's so pink and really nifty...

And the best part is, it's decorated with Hello Kitty.

My girl loves its seriously pink glow,

And for all that come over, its her pleasure to show.

All the nutcrackers are out, there are many you'll find....

I've collected them since I danced the ballet, back in my prime.
If you know Ree, the P-dub, why yes, I danced with her too!

That's about all the tour, but I hope to see you again soon.
Please leave me a note if you've enjoyed the site...

And Merry Christmas to all, and to all a
Good night ;-)
