Today I Am Counting My Blessings

No matter how tired I am, or how crappy I think my week is going to be, it's never as bad as I thought is would be and it's always worse for some of my co-workers. So this week I'm trying to keep a good attitude, be a supportive friend and count my blessings.
We are in the middle of a commisioner's visit (inspection) at school, but the kids have been handling it well and have been mostly cooperative. I know this is going to cost me lots of money at the end of the week, because I feel like they all deserve some treats as thanks for their good behavior. But...believe me, even in high school some cookies or donuts will buy me some good behavior for a couple of weeks. So it will be well worth it to have snack-time on Friday just to say thanks to the kids.
This week I worked on a couple more Christmas LO's and this one makes me laugh, even though it wasn't really that funny at the time. I used Bubblescrap Designs newest kit called Oh The Boys and it is available now at MLAS.

And this one makes me laugh too. But only because my grandkids are so cute and this is was such a fun day. One more month and I get to visit them and I can't wait!
For this LO I used another one of Bubblescrap Designs kit called Cheerful Holiday.
The new challenges are up at MLAS and the template challenge is my favorite. You should give it a try and here's the link to the free template and the challenge.


  1. Poor Jack! I've seen that face a lot recently... when Joe gets his hands stuck in his shape sorters. lol You'd think he'd learn not to do it after a while... ;) I'm glad the inspection is going well, and yes, I remember giving big props to the teachers with the doughnuts. Sometimes, a little bribery goes just far enough. Good luck with the inspection and counting your blessings, and thank you for reminding me to count mine. :)

  2. So today I took Jack to the market. He got his finger stuck in something three times while we were there.
