I hope your hearts and bellies were just as full as mine yesterday. We were fortunate to be able to celebrate the holiday with both our families again. This year, though, it was extra exciting to have our niece, Aniya, with us for her very first Thanksgiving. The novelty of having a baby around was not lost on my family who took turns snuggling her all day. OK... to be honest, it was more like we hijacked opportunities to smuggle her away from the others. At one point, my sister brought her to me for a new diaper, and I swear, before I could even get her little jeggings back on both legs, my mom stole her out from under me! haha
Don't forget to enter my 40-page novel study Giveaway. If you or anyone you know teaches A Christmas Carol, this is a great resource that basically takes all of the guess work out of how to tackle the novel. It's ready-to-use activities will be a hit with your students!
Joel and I are going to hit up a couple stores to see if there are any Black Friday Deals left after the crazies are back home and in bed. He's hoping for a toolbox he saw at Home Depot. I hope there's one left so I can stop hearing about it!
However you spend your day, I hope you enjoy your much-deserved break from school. Relax... you deserve it!
