What I've been up to

About a month ago I started a new job. It's AMAZING!!! I'm an assistant teacher at primary Montessori school. I've been loving every minute of it and in a month or so will also be starting my formal Montessori teaching training. Life is pretty great! Not to mention the fact that I still get to come home to my wonderful husband and darling dog! Besides work I've still been keeping up with some sewing, not as much, but still some. Here's what I've been up to.

A much needed organizational tool I finally bought today

My fabric shelves. Still a bland color, but at least organized.

My new obsession

And of course, BUTTERS!

We had a wonderful Christmas this year! Nathan wasn't under water, so that was a plus, and it was our first Christmas in our First House and with our first dog. It was great!!! Nathan and his family are the sleep in on Christmas, have breakfast and then open present type of people, so he was expecting to sleep in a bit. I, on the other hand, am not a sleep in on Christmas person AT ALL! So, I woke up at about 6:30 because I couldn't sleep, fed and piddled Butters, then put him in his Santa suit and had him go wake up Nathan at around 7:00. Butters ran into the room and stuck his nose in Nathan's face and I informed Nathan the when Santa came to our house last night he decided to stick around. So much for sleeping in hun! We opened our presents in about 30 minutes and then spent the rest of the day cooking or pretty Thanksgivingy Christmas dinner. Butters stayed in his Santa Suit most of the day, which made me laugh tons, especially as he explored the yard in it. All in all, it was a great Christmas! Of course we miss our CA families, but it's really starting to feel that between the two of us, excuse me Butters, the three of us, we've got our own family going pretty strong. Happy New Year!
