Christmas break has been wonderful. We celebrated at five different family gatherings between both sides and enjoyed the family and food.

I cannot blame the holidays but geez.. we literally ate our way through the last two weeks. 

The new family game for this year was Tri-ominos. It is a three sided domino game that we enjoyed playing while at my parents house this year.

Somebody played hard with the extra family members in town.. 
and this is exactly how hard I slept a few days this week. 
My sleep schedule has been wack-o! Monday morning is going to hurt!

Our house looked like a bomb exploded for a few days! Paper and packages EVERYWHERE. Then, I got inspired and did a little cleaning and cleaning out. It feels good to clean out some closets, cabinets and drawers. 

I finished up this set of Silly Snowmen Math Centers. I have a few of these prepped and ready to go next week. These snowmen make me smile.. and wishing for a little snow!

And, if you are interested in the new Silly Snowmen Unit or any of my products- my whole store is on sale for a special New Year's Day Sale!
