Anything New Photo Challenge

My boys went out on Thanksgiving afternoon and bought me some new Christmas lights and two new wreaths. They even climbed up on the roof to put them up for me! They looked so beautiful and really gave me a headstart getting ready for Christmas. Now I'll have new lights and wreaths to enjoy next Christmas season.


These are my new shower curtain and towels that my girls got me for Christmas! I love them!
Aren't they gorgeous? (see the bird?)
Some fun new birthday presents!

This is the school entrance for my new (three week) job beginning on Monday! The school does have alot of Hispanic children, but I didn't realize I took a picture of the Spanish side of the sign. I met with the teacher I will be substituting for this morning. I'll be in a resource classroom with 2nd and 4th grade kids helping them with reading and math. I'm really excited.

Great photos! You had terrific lighting on your indoor shots, and I always struggle with it. How sweet of your fellas to help with the decorations. And I am LOVING that blue and brown combination on your bathroom textiles!

Congrats on the new job too! Hot dog!

Wow - you're a very crafty mom. Lovely layout and great photos.

I always found long term sub assignments were much more rearding (less-stressful too!) than very short ones. You might find a few articles to help get you started and setup at my blogsite. Good Luck!
