Winter Wonder Land.

Yes, the snow is falling. In massive amounts!! We have had quite a few things cancelled this past weekend because the snow does not want to stop. So yes, that is why I am blogging on a Sunday morning. Both morning and evening church services have been cancelled. Our yearly Christmas concert at our church was also cancelled. It was quite a disappointment but at least we were safe at home instead of traveling in the blizzard.

Of course I wasn't all too thrilled that the gazillion chicken salad sandwiches I had made for the concert would have to be eaten by every member of my family, including me! Have I mentioned lately how much I love chicken??? Yuck!

This morning Carole had had just about enough of our lack of Christmas spirit! ((Smile)) Yes indeedy, we still had no tree! I don't know about this year... I think Christmas came too soon or something. So, Carole bundled up along with Aaron and my dad and they went tromping out on this cold snowy morning, into our yard and chopped down a Christmas tree! I am not even kidding! LOL It looks quite nice laying down in the middle of the living room drying off! :)

Well, my Christmas shopping is almost done. We were in town all day yesterday. I was very happy when I found the perfect birthday/Christmas gift for Carole. Very happy indeed!

I am just about on my Christmas break. If the snow has stopped I will be going ice skating with the school tomorrow! HUH! LOL...more like standing on the side lines with my camera is more like it! Yes my bloggie people, I have never gone ice skating in my life! But, my students are going so I am sure I will be needed.

Then on Tuesday we will be having our Christmas party. And then....I will be officially on break!! In about two weeks we will be heading down to spend a late Christmas and New Years with our family. I always look forward to that time of year.

Before I end this snowy post I needed to share a "classroom moment." with my bloggie friends...

Me: "So what do you think the wise men saw in the sky?"
Every one of my students: "Abraham!"

Scratching my head.... "I think we might have missed something!"

I know I have been doing terrible at blogging, and lately I have seriously thought about taking a break so you would at least know not to keep on checking for a new post for a while. But I just can't do it yet! I can almost guarantee you will see me back on my blog before Christmas so keep on checking!

But, just in case, I want to wish all of you a very Merry Christmas!!! And please don't forget the real reason for this season!!
