It's been a couple weeks....

Hi there!

I promise I have good reason for my absence.  Of course the last week of school before Christmas Break is all sorts of WONDERFUL and BUSY, but my break has been spent away from home, creating amazing family memories and soaking up a little much-needed SUNSHINE!  It has been BLISS!  We head home tomorrow, and today is a rainy, gloomy day here in Orlando, so we're being completely lazy inside.  The boys are watching sports, my daughter is enjoying her latest favorite app "Stack the States", and I am doing a little blogging and blog-reading.  I even took a nap!  I know that my to-do list will be looooooong when I get home, so I am making the most of this relaxing day today.  

Here are a few highlights from our trip.

Christmas morning in sunny SW Florida!

Early-morning seashell collecting.  Definitely one of my favorite parts of this vacay!
Airboat ride -- it was overcast, but we still got up close to some gators!
 Sea World!  My favorite day of all!  Magic!
 Perfect weather and so many smiles!!

 I'm hoping to be back this weekend to wrap up December (a bit late....) and look toward the new year!  I hope your break has been restful and wonderful!!

  1. Jill, so glad you were able to get away and enjoy a warm vacation with the fam. Love that Jingle Joy was a hit for you. Tootles was also a HUGE hit in my room, although it did make December extra crazy, but worth it! Soooo, thank you for sharing the New Year's class book idea. I'm a tad intimidated to try it out, but with LOTS of modeling and brainstorming, I think we're up for the challenge!! Hope to chat with you more soon. Miss you friend!
