Festive salutations, y’all!
This little pregnant lady is 2.5 days away from CHRISTMAS VACATION! (cue the Hallelujah chorus)
My kiddos have been pretty solid this week (minus the child I had to reprimant for googling 'poopoo'), but oh by gosh by golly it’s already been a crazy week. Between the fire drill, two hour guided reading training, Christmas performance, and Grinch Day, this teacher is keeping her eye on the prize of Friday at 11:45 (though I have the delight of driving up to Dallas for my gestational diabetes test. Merry Christmas to me…insert eye roll).
Nonetheless, the end is in sight. I can do it. We can do it.
And remember, this will be my last week of Wal-Mart sharing until 2017! I’m heading to Knox Vegas on Sunday so I won’t be Wal-Marting while there…though some Trader Joe’s and perhaps Fresh Market shopping ideas may be popping up for y’all.
In the meantime, I’ve got a few last minute Christmas finds from Wal-Mart that will help you with your Christmas gifting and entertaining.
