P52: 50th week around the sun

Winter really showed up this week! We've had 3 snowy events this week and this winter lover is loving it. Makes this holiday season even more perfect!

Seeing snow everywhere has made me a giddy little school teacher, too. The drive to and from work is stunning and the excitement buzzing in the kids is contagious. Of course, natural New Englanders, it started snowing, heavily, Tuesday mid-morning. One kid looks up from her work, exclaims "Hey! Snow!" They all look up, go "cool!" and go back to work. Seasoned snow veterans.

Of course, the cold and snow has made me want to become more domestic than usual. The crockpot was pulled out, oven used to roast, and yummy pancakes for breakfast over the weekend. Good thing it burns serious calories shoveling! 

Now it's onto one week of school before we let out for winter break - insane the year is really, really almost over!

Highlight of the week: The snow. Hands down. Happy Tamar with all the white blanketing the area! 

Favorite teaching moment: Watching my class give a "weekend weather outlook" for the entire school. They looked at the current temp and forecast and put the thing together, so cute!

Random-osity: Friday night, Lord of the Rings was on. After lamenting the insertion of commercials every 3 minutes, it hit me...put in the DVD...genius, right?
Also!
I have decided to start a link-up in 2014! It will be on Mondays and be called:
 "The Good. The Random. The Fun."
Come link up something good, random, or fun about your week, or all 3! I hope you'll join me!!

Love that snow red sky! It must be so fun being a teacher of grade school when it snows. Even "seasoned vets" must have a special sparkle in their eyes :)

Ah yes, there is nothing like cold weather and a crock pot full of food! Have a good week.

Snow is very pretty - as you know we had it, but all of a sudden we lost it as well. Darn, I hope it will come back soon! I´m curious about the crockpot, may have to buy one. :-)

I remember the kids getting excited about snow in PA when I worked there. It wasn't as frequent an occurance. But if they were that calm on the first one-they truly are seasoned

We've been loving the snow too...shoveling and all! Now it's kind of an icy mess where we haven't shoveled but it still looks pretty! I hope it sticks around now for Christmas!

Looks fabulous! The perfect weather for crock pot meals and pancakes! I'll be right over!

I saw your tweet of the video of the kids doing their weather forecasts -- bravo! Love your red sky and then snowed street shots. My husband commutes an hour each way for work - changes the whole perspective on snow (oh, and now a teenage son driving in the stuff - ugh!).

Looks like a winter wonderland. Send some snow west. We're very cold but way too dry out here.
