Let's Go Lions!

I know we are major underdogs, but I am SO hoping that SOMEHOW the Lions can pull out a win over the Saints tonight. You never know! Come on Stafford!!! I was going to go out to watch the game, but we decided to stay home in our jammies and I'm much happier.

I'm in between sizes right now so my clothes don't fit right. My jeans are droopy. One of my first graders said yesterday, "I think your jeans are a little too big for you." How funny that they notice. And she is right, but what can I do about it? The smaller size is way too tight and the bigger size is too big. Hopefully I'll be able to lose some and be able to go with the smaller ones. (The Panera I just ate won't help...) Until then, it's Mrs. Saggypants.

As far as school goes, oh my, this past week was ROUGH! Getting up, going to was all tough. Hoping to get enough sleep this weekend to make up for it. I loved Jaime's snowman idea over at What's the Buzz, but I didn't have oil pastels, so I made this instead:

I used 3x3 squares for most of it and it worked quite well. (I'll get the pastels next year!) If you'd like the writing that goes along with this, visit
Most of the carrot noses were rounded and we think it is because most kids eat baby carrots now!

Hope you're having a wonderful weekend!
