Merry Christmas & Supporting Sandy Hook

I hope that everyone had a very Merry Christmas!  Ours was fantastic.  Both Christmas Eve and Christmas Day were filled with family and delicious food... two of my favorite things!  It was so fun to watch our niece and nephew open their presents... they are 2 and 3 1/2 and PRECIOUS.  

The most fabulous gift I got was A SILHOUETTE CAMEO!!!!!!!!!!  I have been wanting one for what feels like decades, and I was so surprised and happy to unwrap that sweet little baby.  I have played with it for a couple of hours so far and am in love.  Any advice or fun tips would be greatly appreciated!

I love the Cameo so much that I allowed my picture to be taken with it in elf pajamas with no makeup on.  All of the filters and cropping in the world couldn't save this sad little picture!  Sorry about the bed head :)

Also, I just came across this great idea on Little Miss Glamour Goes to Kindergarten.  I will be donating 50% of all of my TPT profits to Sandy Hook.  Each and every day I think of that horrible tragedy, and this seems like the least I can do to help.  

As Kristin said, "Let's show the teachers of Sandy Hook that we, too, feel a personal hurt for what happened because we know that any one of us could've been in the same situation and we would've done the exact same thing to protect our students at any cost.  Let's show them that we're proud of their strength and hold them high as heroes."

Last but not least, I just finished up my latest bilingual unit, and it's all about January!  This packet contains 35 pages of word cards, mini word walls, graphic organizers, writing prompts and more.  All items are in both English and Spanish, and can be used in an English only classroom, Spanish only classroom or Bilingual classroom. It is perfect for boosting vocabulary and inspiring writing.  Plus, did I mention it's on sale for $3.00 (this week only)?
