December Currently and Christmas Cards!

Oh my goodness..Time sure does fly by when you're busy! It seems like yesterday we were all going crazy with our Monday Made It's over the summer and posting pictures about getting ready for the start of the school half the year is gone and it's December!!

Of course..I could not let myself miss Farley's December Currently! Head over to link up :)

December is my absolute favorite time of year. I love everything about Christmas! I love all of the decorations, the lights, and the holiday spirit!! Seems like people are happier and nicer this time of year...hmm maybe we should leave decorations up all year round?! haha. 

I have been wanting to get started CHristmas shopping so badly...but I needed to get done with my portfolios. I've been talking about it a lot lately for those of you who have been following me. I've finished 2 of 3 and am hoping to crank this last one out today. I'm hoping to finish by 3 when the boy gets off work so we can start some holiday shopping!

For my RAK, I live in an apartment building so there are a lot of people who I do not know! I would love to start a "you've been jingled" where you leave a gift on someones doorstep with a note..They are to jingle others in the building as well. Can't wait to start this when I go shopping!! :D

Last but not least..I would like to share our Christmas Cards. My students have been working on starting their Christmas cards to their families. This was a pinterest inspired card. 

All you need is various colors and sizes of green paper. I used some scrapbook papers and cut them up. The kids then put them in order from big to small and create a Christmas tree! They love this!!
Hopefully later this week I'll be sharing with your our gifts that we make for families. It's a super cute ornament :) Check back later this week for that

Have a great and busy week!


  1. Wow, your Christmas cards are so cute!! I love the holidays too, it's my favorite time of year! What is your favorite Christmas song? Mine is O Holy night, but when I was younger it was The FIrst Noel so that has a special place in my heart as well! :)

  2. I am also on the "I need to get on to something else and stop blogging" sometimes. We are doing the same sort of trees as you next week too! (though we are finding the area and perimeter of each strip...not making a card...but they will look the same!)

  4. Hey Courtney,

    I definitely need to start my Christmas shopping too...though I always tend to get sidetracked by that "super cute whatever that I NEED to have" haha. Glad I found your blog through Farley's currently!
