Hello dear bloggers!
I bet you're thinking...uh what is with that title!?
You straight trippin' boo.

Well, I just got off the phone with a good friend of mine...and she had texted me earlier about a funny(sorta) story.

And it goes a little something like this...

One year I was reading a book to my kinder darlings.  I think I was doing an author study on Eric Carle or Leo Lionni....I can't remember.  ANYWAYS after I read the story I decided to show them an animated version on YouTube.  We watched a short clip...then they begged me to watch another.  We did....then they begged for another and I couldn't resist their charming ways....So I decided we would watch ONE more and I would choose.  I noticed that YouTube had a list of suggestions to the right of the video and one of those suggestions was The Giving Tree.

I LOVE Shel Silverstein..He makes my heart happy.  And I was so excited to share that story to my little ones.  Many of them had never heard it so I thought....Ok, we could watch this story and move on with our day.

I clicked play.

The video started and it was all good...until.

I noticed the story line seemed a little different...the little boy was saying something about his parents dying in a fire...I quickly grabbed the mouse to hit stop because I had a funny feeling this wasn't the story of The Giving Tree that I was familiar with.

Well I moved too slow because...

The next thing I (and my room full of 5 year olds) hear is the little boy demanding that the tree give him all "your friggin' apples!"  BUT THE BOY DIDN'T SAY FRIGGIN' HE ACTUALLY CURSED!

I died. DIED!

I had to have a conversation with my littles, send a note home, and let the principal know what happened.

Everyone was really supportive about the whole thing but...I was a wreck.

ACK!  It's a funny story NOW...

Beware of YouTube...it's not always what it seems.

Well I hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving...I cooked all day...then ate all night.  Then shopped the next day...Then got my creating on!
I made tons of stuff this weekend. And just in time for the TpT and Teachers Notebook sale.  Make sure you fill up your cart with tons of goodies.

Here are a couple of freebies to get the party started!  Enjoy!

These next few are brand new to my TpT and Teachers Notebook store.  I'll have them up for free until midnight tonight (EST).  Click the pics to download!

And gimme all your friggin' apples!

Hi y'all!

Where did November go?
It came along so quickly...next thing I know it's almost Thanksgiving and I haven't finished my December packet.

Well I got right to work I tell you what.  This morning I finally finished my December morning work packet.  I'm actually very happy with this months packet!  I hope you all enjoy it.  Check out some pics.  You can get your very own copy here.

Now that that's finished...Mr. Roboto and I are off to do some Thanksgiving Dinner grocery shopping.  I'll keep this up for free until we get back from the store.

If you happen to miss out...don't worry. You can find it in my TpT or Teachers Notebook store...at a discount!
That's right...to get us all in the holiday spirit, I'm selling December's packet for $3.00!

We got a Nor'easter up here y'all.  It is bananas.  Rain, wind and SNOW.  This Texas girl was not prepared for snow so early.  Driving home was cray! Slush on the road, snow on the car, tears in my eyes! I was so nervous I started crying.  I got home just fine.

OMG get thyself to a Target...post-haste!

Hey all!

I am watching the results of the election so...this post will be short and sweet!

I stopped at Target on my way home and hit the JACKPOT!
They were clearing out all of their Halloween goodies and I went buckwild. Most of their stuff was 90% off.

90% off

So I bought a few of these Halloween treat pails for my kiddos next year.  They came out to .20¢ each!  WHAT! I know...cray
Here's a pic.

Aren't they adorable!?  I bought all of them.
I'm sick I know...
I bought every single one.

Well to celebrate my sick habit...the first person to guess how many of these pails I bought will receive any item from my TpT store for free!

Just leave your guess and email address below.
