It's Begining to Look a Lot Like Christmas

It's still November and Christmas time has already begun. At school I've started reading Christmas stories, writing letters to Santa and the preps have been making cards, photo frames and wrapping paper. We've also been singing lots of Christmas carols. So I've dragged out the Christmas CDs and Christmas stories to share with all the classes I'm with.

But what has really made it feel like Christmas is that one of my Year 1 students gave me a Christmas card yesterday. My first card of the year! Now it REALLY feels like Christmas.

And in other news, 3 days til I go to Sydney wooohoo!

And in other other news, I need to re-organise my teaching resources into folders. I started a little tonight and found that I have HEAPS of paper to get rid of. Mainly from my pracs.

My 22nd Birthday

I have been so busy that I haven't had time to blog about my birthday yet. It was a great one and I'm not even feeling older at all!

On my actual birthday I had to work and after work I had to go to a literacy training course. So the day wasn't all that exciting. Jeff gave me my favourite chocolates in the morning and stayed to make me some breakfast. I had a family dinner on the Friday night and my friends organised a suprise bbq at the beach on the Saturday night which was fun.

I got lots of great presents. Christmas house stuff, money, wine glasses, chocolate, teapot and cup, plants, jewlery box, other house stuff, a money box and such. It was great! And Jeff gave me some Casting Crowns CDs which I love!

November the Great

I wanted to let everyone know that November is a great month. There is a few reasons for this. First of all its my birthday YAY! 12th November so don't forget. It's also most christmas time which means decorations, christmas carols and present buying/making.

This year for my birthday I'm just having dinner with my family sometime during the week and as a little treat I am going to Sydney wooohoo. I'm quite exciting! I'm also apparently having a party... I know nothing about.

As for christmas time, I'm looking forward to decorating our tree and house. I'm also planning out christmas presents for everyone. I love cooking something each year so I wont say too much or you will all know exactly what it is. Christmas time is such fun.

I hope that everyone enjoys November as much as I do. And it's getting warm!
