Christmas Questionaire Linky and a Freebie

Hot chocolate or Eggnog?
I love both!  I drink my non-alcoholic eggnog with pinch of nutmeg.

Does Santa wrap presents or just sit them underneath the tree?  
When I was growing up he would set them up by the tree.  My husband's family wraps them.  We'll have to figure out which we want to do when we have kiddos running around.

Colored lights or white?
I decorate with white lights but I think if I were to deck out the outside of the house I would add some colored lights.

When do you decorate?
 We usually decorate the weekend of Thanksgiving if we can or early the next week. 

Real or Fake Tree? 
We have a real tree this year! Our fake is out in the scary spider infested shed...we decided we didn't want to deal with that!
What Tops Your Tree? 
A star.
Favorite Christmas Memories or Traditions?
Ohhhh so many! I remember staying at my grandparent's homes when I was little. My cousin and I would look for Santa in the sky and try so hard to sleep on Christmas Eve. The hubster's family does a White Elephant that I talked about here. I also love driving around and looking at Christmas lights.

Do you remember your favorite gift as a child? 
My first daddy tried to teach me to ride in my grandparent's cul-de-sac that day. I had a hard time until the next day when they got me training wheels.  I believe I was five.  
Do prefer giving or receiving? 
I love giving gifts and the excitement that they like what I gave them.

What is your favorite Christmas song?
I love "The First Noel" and  "Breath of Heaven."

Candy Canes. Yuck or Yum?
Yuck!  At least not peppermint flavored!
Favorite Christmas Movie? 
I don't know!  I haven't watched any Christmas movies in a long time! I used to love "Miracle on 34th Street."

Do you shop online or at stores?
Well out here in sticks I shop online but if I can get to the big city there are certain stores I try to hit up.  Amazon is the way to go out here though!

Photo Cards, Letter or Store Bought Card?
I love photo cards but I've never sent one!

Freebie Fridays

I had this freebie for last week but I added more pages for get this freebie click on any picture below.  If you have any suggestions for other "Colorful Trees" I will gladly add them! Just leave me a comment!

Happy weekend! Apple on!

All I Want for Christmas Linky

It has been really fun for me to read everyone's wish lists for Christmas over at 2nd Grade Shenanigans...I like receiving gifts but I most definitely LOVE giving gifts more. My husband is going to get alot of gifts with a homemade touch this year.  I hope he likes his gifts! Here's what I have on my wish list for Christmas...

 Isn't that Shabby Apple dress to die for?!  I love how glamorous it is! I have been wanting some black pumps for a while and the only way black pumps get better is lace.  These Ann Taylor Abbey pumps are perfect.
 Anyone that knows me personally knows how perfect these Crystal Bullet Necklaces are for me. I couldn't even begin to pick which one because they are all gorgeous!
 Who likes to mop?  NOT ME!  I think that the Shark Steam Mop might make it easier for me though.  I don't have any bread pans.  I don't know how I've lived without them this long. Do you watch Food Network?  I love how the chefs on there have salt and pepper at the ready to sprinkle so gracefully in their dish. I could feel like a REAL chef!

What's on your wish list?  Go over to 2nd Grade Shenanigans and share it with us!  I can't wait to read it.  Apple on!

It's Beginning to Look...

alot like Christmas! Don't you love decorating for Christmas?! This is a little peek into how I decorate around here...

I haven't done a post about Sunday School in a while so I thought I'd do a quick one and I also have a freebie for you at the end...another Colorful Trees!
 Chevron background found here. Bee clip art found here.

-Bee idea found here
-Compasses from Dollar Tree. 
-Apples made out of vanilla and chocolate flavored candy coating. 

I made the apple with this silicone ice cube mold that I bought at Target sometime last year. It was I had to have it! Also I was unable to print the handout to go with the apples because my printer ran out of!  It has to do with becoming a better teacher of the gospel...the youth (ages 12 to 18) are sometimes expected to teach lessons and when they go on missions for the church. I will be sure to post it under the Sunday School tab when I am able to print it.

 Thanks for sticking with's your freebie!
Apple on!

December Currently

YAY!  It's December I'm linking up with Farley over at Oh' Boy 4th Grade for this month's Currently!

Listening- My dad always, always, always, listens to the Mormon Tabernacle Choir. While I use to think that was lame I am loving their holiday station on Pandora.

Loving- This month is busy!  We have church, family and friend Christmas parties to go to. Now if I can only get my husband on board with going all over the place this month.

Thinking- I am really excited for the Cyber Monday and Tuesday sale...I'll show you the prodcuts that you can buy from my store later in this post. I am wondering what I should buy.  I don't need anything for a classroom since I currectly do not have one but maybe I could snag up some adorable fonts and clip art to make more products for you!

Wanting- Hubster and I went to look at trees yesterday but didn't select one yet.  I got out a couple of decorations and wrapped a few presents but can't wait to get a tree tomorrow!

Needing- I set a goal to have all boxes unpacked from our move five months ago by the new year but I feeling some serious lack of motivation because they are boxes of files and paperwork.  Ugh!

Favorite Tradition- This was hard to pick because I actually just love every minute of the holiday season.  The white elephant gift exchange is something my husband's family does and the whole family participates.  We have bought some funny and awful gifts for it...such as...the game where the dog poops (picture found here) and spam with a side of gum and a butt face towel (picture found here). It is just too much fun!

Who's ready for the big cyber sale!?!?! 
I am so excited to be participating in my first teachers pay teachers sale.
I am offering 20% off of these products Monday AND Tuesday.
