We love Mrs. Barth!

I have been working at the same school this entire school year so far covering for a 5th grade teacher who was out on maternity leave. The Friday before Christmas was not only the last day before Christmas, but it was also my last day! My students definitely make me feel like I did a good job! Here is my LOOT they gave me!

I'll post Christmas festivities as soon as we get home from VA! We are out helping my brothers family during the holidays!

Busy, Busy, Busy...

November was a crazy month all around. We started the month off with our anniversary. The next week we went to Monteray to celebrate our anniversary plus my birthday! We had a great time and enjoyed the opportunity to get away.
This year for Thanksgiving it was our year to be with Whitney's family. Whitney's mom left 2 days before Thanksgiving to go be grandma so we were left with her dad to be the hosts of 4 British visitors and Whitney's family. Her cousin is engaged to a guy from England. His family just so happened to coming to the states for a visit and it happened to be during Thanksgiving. We made sure to give them a true American Thanksgiving. We went all out which was fun but a little stressful not having mom around. Overall it was a fabulous day and we realized how much we had to be thankful for!

As for Whitney and her attempts at crafts... SUCCESS!!! She and McKae King found a cute wreath made out of ornaments on a friends blog and they decided try it. They turned out great! they were both very proud of them. Whitney has since made another one for her mom in different colors and is in the process for making one for Cami in exchange for some bows she made.

December has started a crazy month and has no signs of slowing down. We are headed off to Virginia to spend Christmas and New Years with Justin and Hannah. We are going to miss our California families but are excited to go be Aunt Whitney and Uncle Todd.
