Monday Made It: February & March


Today I'm connecting with Tara with another .....

It's been a while since I've posted about things that have been happening in 2015. We've all (me and the kids) been having a BLAST lately and we really wanted to catch you all up to speed. 



February blew by, but early March has been setting some amazing SNOW RECORDS here in Texas! We were supposed to have just a sheet of ice, but God had other plans... and decided to drop about   3-4 inches on us here in Garland, TX.





In the spirit of FROZEN... I finally got to ask the kids, "Do you wanna build a snowman?"






And so we did!
My husband Michael and the kids (it was easier to put the arms of the snowman up vs. horizontal).



 Our "Olaf"

Here are our SNOW VIDEOS!

 After making our snowman... I made everyone some hot chocolate...



.... and later we enjoyed some baked potato soup




Everyone's hair was getting so long, so I decided it was time for a haircut. I buzzed Max's hair and tried (as best I could) to layer Angelica's hair. This was her first official haircut!




Above are the BEFORE shots...








 Here are the AFTER shots....



Today was such a beautiful day outside we all decided to enjoy a nice afternoon at the playground.

Even Anthony was having a blast just chillin' in his stroller!

"UP! UP! UP!"




I've been brainstorming lately about how teachers can use something as simple as a GIF image and create something amazing that doesn't take several class periods to achieve, Here are some of my "GIF ideas" in action.

I also have another FREE download that walks you step-by-step on how to create a GIF. Feel free to also use it with your students!



Happy Wednesday!
