Thanksgiving Break and a Cyber Sale

I hope you had a Happy Thanksgiving and a nice break from school. 

I spent the day Wednesday cooking and baking in preparation of hosting our families on Thursday. Thursday, of course, was filled with yummy food and time with family.

Friday morning started with basketball practice (I'm the assistant for MS girls) and some shopping (not necessarily for Christmas--my son is turning FIFTEEN this Wednesday and we hadn't found a gift yet). We ended up going in with him to get his first cell phone. He is pretty excited about it, and I can't believe he is growing up so fast. According to my daughter, "He is going to be halfway to 30!" ;-)

Saturday we (by we, I mean my husband and kids--they are awesome) worked on the stage for the upcoming Christmas concert a week from Monday. I'll be so thankful to have that finished! I had a nightmare about it being so bad my principal had to stop it after only two songs and I was going to get fired over it. I was going for a "winter wonderland." What do you think?

We went from there to basketball practice (again). We have a game tomorrow--toughest one yet! I really wish they wouldn't schedule games the day after breaks. It would be nice to be able to not worry about having practice. We actually have one scheduled the day BEFORE kids report back from Christmas break. Anyway, my daughter is the starting point guard and she is feeling sick tonight... I'm really hoping it is NOT the flu. She said she is not missing the game...we'll see...

Tomorrow is Cyber Monday and we are having sales in our TPT and TN stores. You can actually start shopping at Teacher's Notebook now if you want. Both sales are going on through December 2nd and everything in our stores is 20% off. Use the Promo Codes for even better prices!!

Three weeks and I'll be talking Christmas break...crazy!


  1. Your winter wonderland is perfect. I'm pretty sure you won't be fired. :)

  2. Your stage looks BEAUTIFUL, Crystal!!
    It sounds like you had a busy but fun Thanksgiving. I didn't realize 'til just this year that many Americans have a week off for Thanksgiving. It's not such a big deal in Canada. We just get the one day.
    Take care!

    1. Thanks, Barb! It is interesting to see the different schedules/breaks since I started following blogs. I'm thankful for the few days we have off--usually in need of a break! But then aren't we all?
