I am SOOOOO happy it is Friday! Why do the days seems to DRRRAAAGG in the weeks leading up to the Holidays? Or is that just me?? Nah, I know that's the truth for all 'yall too, right?
Last year I posted about the fun little snowman plaque that my kidlets made for their parents, which turned out UBER-CUTE! Here's a little reminder pic...
Sooo cute, if I do say so myself!!
Well, this year, I decided to give them choices. (Insert gasp!) I know, shocking right?? As a rule, I am not a fan of choices for my kidlets. I believe that it causes chaos. Well, maybe I am being over-dramatic a little bit, but overall, I like it better when I am "el hefe" (the boss) and they are my minions (kind of like Despicable me, you know, the cute little yellow guys who did Gru's every bidding??), and that makes everyone (meaning me) happy. Can I get a AMEN, sistas!!
Maybe it's the Christmas spirit in me, but this year we are having not 1, not 2, but 3 different choices when we paint our plaques. Drumroll please....

I also have a cute little poem to share with you that I made for a fellow teacher at my school who gives her kids "Snowman Soup" every year for Christmas. What a ADORABLE idea!! I believe, although I have never made this yet, that you put hot chocolate, marshmallows, a candy cane, and chocolate kisses in a bag, and voila! Snowman soup!!
I am sooo giving this to my littles this year! If you would like a copy of the poem to attach to the Snowman Soup, click below...
