It's December 10th! You know what that means? 
Christmas is coming, Christmas is coming! 
2 weeks away, I can't wait!
Although, with the weather we had today (almost 70 degrees!) you would have no idea it was that close!

 Got to work & prepared my notes & answer key for the day. Today was a fun lesson on Simplifying Square Roots. Doesn't this make you miss Pre-Algebra? Ha!
The leadership class at our school is doing "Secret Snowflakes" and each student is assigned a teacher. This is what my Secret Snowflake gave me today...A 7 up & some microwave popcorn. Pretty sure you should pin this awesome poem. Ha!
Home from school & the first thing we did  was snack time, followed by homework (for Kate). Claire wanted homework also, so I made her practice her writing her name. Of course, I had Christmas music blasting. Everyday after school the Christmas music gets turned on. Favorite.

Gum drops in an old school jar. Just like my Grammy has at her house :)
 Dinner Prep....Mexican Chicken Tortilla Casserole. A staple during Fall/Winter.
 Off to check the mail...my favorite thing to do in December, because that means CHRISTMAS CARDS!!
My friends are on the ball this year, we have already gotten quite a few & it's only December 10th! This is how I display them.....pom pom ribbon across my window & then I use mini clothespins to attach the cards:
My neighbors have fun Christmas lights/decorations, so I took some pictures of them & played around with my settings on the 2nd one, I think it looks neat :)
 Today was a really good day.
The weather was beautiful & the girls played SO well together all afternoon. 
It was so nice. I am glad today ended up on the 10th because it really was just a nice (and rare) day with no tears or arguing. 
Being so sleep deprived, I am thankful for a day like today.
It is well with my soul.
Happy 10th...Hope you were able to capture the beauty of your day today!
