This and That



ABC Adventures
I read lots of Tot School and Preschool Corner blog posts.  Many of them have so many fabulous alphabet activities.  However, it can be overwhelming to try and keep track of all of them.  Fortunately, United Teaching will begin hosting a blog meme in January to link up all of our ABC Adventures.  You may include posts detailing your alphabet-related ideas for crafts, learning centers, games, recipes, songs and rhymes, and books to read.  You can read all about here. I look forward to participating and reading everyone's posts!

Candle Holder
This was the Christmas gift that Wes made for me in nursery school.  It is so pretty that I had to share it with you.






















It is a mason jar, sponge painted white with gold stars, with a glass votive holder inserted into the mouth.  There is a little card attached with a brown ribbon.  The card says "Jesus is the light of the World".
Love it!

I hope that you've been a good girl this year, and you will get some of the things on your wish list. I am jealous of your snow and thank you for all the great links you share.
