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!
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.

I feel compelled to EXCLAIM to ya'll my love for www.retailmenot.com. 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!

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....
