Christmas 2010

Here are some things we did this Christmas!

Spend time with family!

Went to the Christmas Tree farm in Lindale to get our Christmas tree!

Made Build-a-Bears for West and Laney for their first Christmas. This is is P.W. and Princess Leah!

Went to Fredericksburg and stayed at a bed and breakfast! We went ice skating, saw the tree, ate at a German Restaurant, went to Ladybird Johnson Park, and saw some old historic bulidings and school houses.

We went to Gaylord Texan ICE exhibit to see Charlie Brown.

We went to Bethlehem revisited in Waxahaxie where they recreate the town of Bethlehem. We also toured some homes decorated for Christmas.

We looked at Christmas lights and found the TCU Superfrog, Frosty, Santa, and Rudolph at one of the houses!

We went to a house we found a few years ago. The man decorates his garage and makes it into a snow village for people to come look at!
We had a lot of fun! It is back to reality way too soon!

Christmas Classroom happenings

My class had so much fun at Christmas! We made this Grinch Village for our classroom. We rode the Polar Express in our P.J.'s. at the Stockyards. Then we came back to school ate lunch, watched the movie, and had hot chocolate.

Here are some recent quotes from my kids:
me: in sunglass at recess
Student: Your pimping Mrs. Morris
I was indeed NOT pimping ;-)

Student: (innocently) Mrs. Morris what is gay apparel?
Me: It is happy, cheerful clothes. Christmas clothes.
Me: (next day wearing a Christmas shirt)
Student: Your wearing gay apparel Mrs. Morris!
Student: proceeds to tell other teachers in the building they are wearing gay apparel!

They are a lot of fun and work too ;-) It is back to reality soon!

Class Room Happenings!

Welcome to my classroom! I can't believe it is already alomost the second semester. I have areally good class of 2nd graders this year. I am having a lot of fun with them. Here is our class!
Here is the reading center.

Here is my tweety collection!

This bell was in Nana's classroom and she gave it to me for my classroom when I started teaching. It is very special to me!

Laney Leah

Laney 1 day old!

Ok. I don't blog much when I am in school. I guess I need to work on that! I haven't introduced my niece Laney Leah on my blog yet. (I know it's about time!) She was born Sept. 7 at 8:19 am. 7 lbs. 3 ounces. 19.5 in. She is adorable! We love her!

Sweet Laney!
