Weekend Randomness

It's been a busy day today (but a lovely one) After my awful night last night (the cell charger was only a small portion of my troubles) I fell asleep at 10 pm. I needed to sleep off the funk. I woke up this morning feeling a bit better.

So on to the highlights of the weekend in pictures...
Yesterday I watched my friend Meg's little girl, Meredith, for a few hours. We went to McDonald's Playplace before hitting up the mall. The Happy Meal toy was a My Little Pony. How fun! I almost wanted to get one for myself, but I refrained. How cute is Meredith? She was all about taking pictures with the pony.Today was a good day for getting caught up on random stuff. I cleaned, baked and organized all day. It was lovely. I need that time to just zone out and think. It was incredibly helpful.
Anyway, tonight I had some of the students I supervise over for the Secret Santa gift exchange. Tomorrow is the last day of classes (YAY!)

The tree with the gifts under it.
The cute little gifts that one of them made for the others.
The delicious food that everyone brought. I made my infamous pizza dip (Beth taught me awhile ago and it has become a party favorite) I may not have a cell charger right now but I'll be happy to walk out to my car in the cold weather wearing my new Coach gloves.
My secret Santa works there and gave me these tonight. I saw the box under the tree and secretly hoped that it was for me. I absolutely love these gloves and can't wait to wear them.
I'm off to go to bed and read some Twilight (I'm actually enjoying it). I hope that everyone had a great weekend!

I started Twlight this weekend and I absolutely LOVED it! I was not expecting to really get into, but I have. I am sucked into the second book now.
Your tree looks so happy with all the presents under it! Have a happy Monday!

I have never understood the deal with little girls and ponies. But then little girls never understand my deal with hockey fights, no matter how often I try to tell them about it on the bus.
