Blessed Beyond Imaginable, Photo Dump and New TpT Unit

As Thanksgiving is approaching, I find myself pondering the many things that I am thankful for.  I am blessed beyond anything imaginable.  I have a wonderful, supporting family; I LOVE my job (most days) and the people that I work with; I am healthy; and, I am blessed to be able to find so many wonderful ideas to use in my classroom through the many teachers that take the time to share things through their blogs.  THANK YOU!
I would like to also say how thankful I am to Teachers Pay Teachers.  Being able to sell things that I make has allowed me and my husband to being the adoption process to adopt our nephew.  We have had custody of him since he was 18 months old and he recently turned 8.  I do not know what our life would be like without him.  Our son, Joe, is 19 and adapted so gracefully when we gained custody.  I just pray daily that my sister (his birth mother) will not put up a fight and agree to it.  God has truly blessed us!
Let me share a few pictures of what my class has been up to the past few weeks.
 My class being Synonym Chefs - they really enjoyed it.  You can find this unit at

 Our Veteran's Day Program - the color guard entering
 A few of the Veterans that were in attendance.  Very blessed to have them come.
 On Friday, we had our school AR kick-off.  Our theme is Super Heroes so the teachers dressed up and we asked our kids to wear super hero t-shirts and several classes made hats to wear.  This is a kindergarten teacher on the left and our principal on the right.
 Here are our 1st grade teachers - notice the 4th one..the one with the tutu...well I think it is adorable....
 Here is all the staff
 Remember the adorable tutu from above...well she and i had a idea that we would make them and wear them.  They were a great hit!  The kids that they was awesome!  I normally do not like doing things like this, but I have decided that being silly sometimes is a great thing.
I hope everyone is enjoying their Thanksgiving Break - I have two days left before mine.  At this point the kids need a break from one another and we are surviving.

Last thing, sorry this post is so long, but here is my new TpT unit.  It is 8 literacy centers.
