Christmas Wishlist

The holiday will soon be here as well as our favorite elf! Megan has been asking about out Elf "Marshall" all year long. Not a week passed by that she didn't ask for him. Soon he will be here and I cannot help but look up some things on Pinterest about him. I found some pretty good ideas for his first day back. The idea that stood out was having him come with a package from the North Pole. Jaime and I are having a grand time figuring out what we should put in the package that she will be receiving. I am hoping that someone can ring the door bell and on the floor will be "Marshall" the elf with the package on our front porch and have Megan come out and see what came for her:) To say I'm excited is an understatement, I love that she knows that Santa could be watching her.

I wanted to take the time to put a little Christmas wish together for my family. So that way they know what I roughly want for Christmas, I think my family knows me well enough that Im happy with books but the others are for Jaime to pick from:) Honestly the first thing that came to mind what Jaime asked me what I wanted for Christmas was books. I LOVE books. I am a huge fan of the Harlequin books, I'm a sucker for Romance novels.

(In no particular order)
1. I broke my Chi flat Iron a week ago and It would be awesome If I could get another one. 
2. I would absolutely LOVE a desktop, I love my laptop but sometimes I would really like to have a desktop.
3. Saw this shirt on etsy and I NEED it, not want it, Need it.:)
4. Lightroom
5. A make-up bag is necessary, my make-up box is kind of falling apart...or maybe I should say it's getting a little old.
6. Where we Belong-Emily Giffin
7. Waiting for you-Susan Colasanti

I would be happy with a bunch of books because well...Im a book worm. What is something on the top of your wishlist, I would love to know, maybe I missed something:)

As I'm typing this post my 3 year old child had been non-stop talking for about 5 minutes already. I'm surprised she is having time to breathe. She said she has a lot of stories to tell me. Never a dull moment with her. She is either dropping things, saying things that she is not suppose to or acting some sort of skit of something. 

I wanted to post some photos and let you all know what we have been up to.

1. For Veterans day, our little family ate some dinner at Golden Corral, there were a ton of people there.
Jaime was talking to so many people, some veterans, some Texan fans, and some of his boys that he used to serve with. It was really packed with people but It was not as bad as I thought It would be. Megan and Jaime had fun, we were in a room in the back and it was pretty quiet for the most part. Cotton Candy is kind of  a big deal with Megan now a days, so when she saw a little boy with Cotton Candy the girl was pretty excited to get some. She had eaten dinner with my mom so she got to eat some dessert when we arrived while Jaime and I ate dinner.

2.This past Wednesday was pretty amazing. I did two unplanned lessons, and let me just point out I really don't like to think on my feet, I like to write down what sort of questions I will be asking and what I will be doing to get the students to be interested in my lesson prior to doing my lesson. I did two read alouds and I did a summarization on the book "Stone Soup". My mentor did some Stone soup for the kiddos and holy cow was it good, she didnt think that she was doing right but for me, it tasted sooo good. I burned my tongue a few times but totally worth it:)

 3. Over the past couple of months Megan has made a very special friend. You can maybe say that she is her best friend. Last Friday we were invited to this little girls birthday party. It was so cute Karen(the birthday girl) was so excited to see Megan, she just went right up to Megan and gave her a hug then another little boy came up to her and gave her a hug. I think she enjoyed herself being with her best friends. Before we had arrived to the party we went to go and pick out a present for Karen and Megan had a really tough time understanding the concept that the present was not for her it was for the birthday girl. Probably the hardest thing ever to make her understand this. It was a little humorous but at the end she understood that the present was not for her and she was excited to give it to Karen. It was the funniest thing too because Karen was so eager to open her presents, Megan was also really excited for her to open presents. Im thinking that Megan is going to love Christmas and her birthday party.

4. After Karens birthday party my family and I spent some time at our Church's festival. We went pretty late but it was still pretty fun. Megan and my little sister were having fun and that was all that mattered to us.

5. As I have been spending more time with my teacher she has been teaching me about the ropes about anythings I want to know. This past Monday I had to organize some books in the Reading Center, and my teacher lets me know that I need to start on my library as soon as possible. I do have a ton of books but not ones for my library so I am now looking for some books for my future classroom. 

The following day I stopped by at a Thrift store and I found a good hand full of books and I also found something borrowed, a book I have been dying to read. All the books you see in this picture were only 4 dollars all together and the "Something borrowed" book was 49 cents. Pretty good bargain.

Well thats all for now, I am fixing to write up a post about some of the netflix shows and movies I have watched recently that were pretty good. I think Ive done about 3 post on this topic so why stop now:)

Have a good Friday night:)

Little Late on the Halloween post(2012)

Well well lets see what we are up to again. I  forgot to write a post up about our Halloween. I know its pretty late but its here:)

 It was on a Wednesday, and on those days I have to do my observation hours at school. So Jaime took Megan to daycare where they were going to have a harvest party and I was going to go to school to spend some time there. At the school some students dresses up in their Halloween outfits and they also had a Costume Parade around the school. After I left the school I went to the store to buy some goodies for Megan to give to her in her basket.

This year was spent with just Me and Megan, Jaime had to work on Halloween. So the both of us spent the night with my family. We spent some time with my mom trying to open her door because she accidentally locked the door to the bathroom and was unable to get inside due to not having a key.

We left to see Jaime and brought him some food but could not stay long because they were also giving out candy at the firehouse. We left with my family to go trick or treating. Megan was pretty scared at first to go trick or treating. Who can blame her? I can be just as scared as her on Halloween. After she didnt want to go to the first house, I pulled her aside and told her "Megan, I know some of these people are scary but momma is gonng be right next to you. If you dont say Trick or Treat to the people, you wont get any candy. I will not leave your side baby ok, it will be ok?" She replied with an "ok, mommy". After that she was fine. She was going up to the houses saying "trick or treat". It was so so cute. It was beyond cute the way she was saying trick or treat. I wish I captured more photos of her trick or treating.

As you can see in the photos we were dressed up as the book of Red Riding hood. She and I are huge fans of Once upon a time. She really likes Red, so we choose to dress up as the characters from the fairytale:) along with my little brother he was the wolf.

I also made her this basket treat that went along with her costume.
