Holly Bloggy Christmas
Click on the picture above to see all of the wonderful gifts that were exchanged!
Last year, I remember reading posts about the Holly Bloggy Gift Exchange and thinking that it sounded like fun.  I am so glad that I decided to participate this year!  I loved the idea of “A few of my favorite things”. My partner was Chrissy from  Here are a few snapshots of what I sent her and why!

1.   I saw the post-it frame holders on someone’s blog and on Pinterest this past year and I have since made one for myself at home, one for myself at school, one for my assistant last year, and one for my assistant this year!  SO, I obviously decided that my exchange partner needed one as well! 
2.   I drink a TON of water all day at school and I love these cups with the lids.  I found this super cute one and thought I would pass it along to my blogging buddy!
3.   Whisper Bell- If you are not familiar with the Whisper Bell, you need to go to and learn about the Whisper Bell!  I LOVE mine and it works wonders.  I hope my Holly Bloggy Exchange partner enjoys hers too! 
4.   Last, I thought I would throw in a little something that Chrissy said she loves.  She said she loves cats and that Splat is one of her favorite.  Scholastic was having their warehouse sale and a bunch of teachers and I went to it a few weeks ago.  I found these and new I should grab them for her.  You can never have too many of your favorite books!

I loved sending off my goodies, but it was just as exciting as seeing a package on my door step! My partner was Erin from It's "Owl" Good in Kindergarten, and she sent me some fabulous goodies!  I have to admit though, that I am out of town for Christmas, so I had to open it a little early!  Ooops! 

I received the cutest blue letter K with green and white polka dotted ribbon!  Since I peeked and opened it early, my K is already on my classroom door and I have gotten a bunch of compliments!   I also received an adorable owl and the reindeer baggie is filled with the flat marbles.  I LOVED my gifts!
       I have had a great holiday so far, even though it hasn't all been too traditional, it will definitely be memorable! (Right Mom?!)  We have had a lot to laugh about at least!  I have just been happy to be around family and friends and look forward to being on vacation until Sunday.  I hope you are all having a wonderful holiday as well! 

Merry Christmas!
