Long time no post!


Our very first Christmas Card Picture
(Phoebe and Piper were so sick and grouchy during the photo shoot.  I'm thrilled we got any pictures at all)

Wow, I can hardly believe that it has been months since my last post.  The start of the school year was wonderful but crazy for me.  I love and adore my new school and my students.  They keep me very busy but it is good.

Piper and Phoebe are growing SO much!  They bring such joy to both James and I.  The girls turned 18 months on November 17th.  Here's a quick update on both girls...

Piper loves to smile, wave at everyone, and blow kisses.  She is learning how to do many different animal sounds.  Her favorites are the kitty, chicken, and her fish face.  Piper loves dogs, especially our pug Molly.  Piper has recently discovered chicken nuggets, oh my goodness does she love them!

Phoebe is hilarious!  She loves to run and play.  Just like Piper, Phoebe loves her dog Molly and can do a variety of animal sounds.  My favorite sound she does is her kitty because she tilts her head every time she does it.  I swear it melts my heart each and every time.  Phoebe is our little eater.  She loves food and will try almost anything.  Her current favorite is her Ama's (Gramdma's) spaghetti.

Both girls are Daddy's girls through and through.  From the moment they wake up to the moment they go to sleep they are asking for Dada or looking for Dada or playing with Dada.

Each day is so exciting with Piper and Phoebe in our lives.  We are blessed beyond words to have such loving, fun, and silly girls to share our lives with!

Red Hill Elementary

So, a couple weeks before school started I got a call from Red Hill Elementary asking me if I would like to interview for a 2nd grade position.  I was beyond thrilled and honored to have the opportunity to interview.  The interview must have gone well because the next day I got a call from my district office asking if I would like to accept a transfer to Red Hill.  As the woman asked me I started crying and jumping up and down on the other end of the phone.  Wahoo!!!!  This was an answer to prayer.  Since school was about to start I needed to get to work quickly on setting up my new classroom.  I took a short video of my classroom before I moved in and then a video after I had moved most of my stuff in.

I would like to give a very special thank you to my mom and dad who worked their booty's off helping me in my classroom and to James for working in my class, watching the babies, and being such a great support system.

I LOVE everything about my new school.  It is such a blessing in my life!
