Snowflakes and Anatomy

I kid you not, one of my students made this gem the day we decorated our room in snowflakes.

Ellie has been driving me crazy lately with her lack of responsibility. One thing that is totally driving me batty is that she constantly misplaces her library book. Library day is on Thursday, and on Wednesdays we are looking high and low for that book! Last night was no different, only I didn't find it.

Well, Ellie popped into my room after school, and as she was emptying her backpack she was telling me about what they had done in class. When suddenly she stopped and said, "Oh B.S., the reason why we couldn't find my library book was because I left it at school."

Now if you didn't catch it, B.S. = P.S. :)

This might have been the first year that I felt the pressure was on for Christmas presents. Ellie asked for a baby doll (of course), and a jump rope. Where to find a jump rope...Luckily Santa found one for her, however, he stored it under the couch, and she found it a day before Christmas. Way to go Santa!!

Rhys got a race track with cars from Santa, and other loud and obnoxious toys for Christmas. Thanks again, Santa!!

Uncle Aaron also got Rhys this cute hoodie...too bad Dad likes the Yankees. :)

And if I could seriously pinpoint my favorite thing about the crawling stage, it would be this. I LOVE when he kneels. What is wrong with me? I think it is so cute!!

Dan mentioned, and I'm not agreeing, but he said Rhys reminds him of someone who is high when he is laughing. I'm not using this as evidence necessarily, but I see where he might feel that way. :)
I just love those kiddos!!
I feel that my family was extremely blessed during 2010...all in all, it was a good year for us. Here's hoping for a wonderful 2011!!
