New Year’s Resolutions

I’m excited to join in this link up….

New Year's Resolutions Banner

I don’t typically make resolutions.  I just don’t do it and for the most part, I don’t follow through.  I’m pretty good at setting goals though and working toward them.  So, when I saw this linky, I was looking forward to joining up because I know these are a few of the things that I know I need to work on.  My favorite saying and what keeps me striving for more and knowing that making mistakes is alright (and I hope that those around me “get it”)….

Work in Progress 10

With that said, here’s my “resolutions” for 2016….

A Christmas Present

I have something special, just for you my readers. I wanted to give you a present this year for following along and putting up with my sporadic posts and everything else!!

TheChristmasStory ColoringBook PREVIEW byElaineG

This is a 4-page coloring book for the nativity. It focuses on Luke 2 and Matthew 2. It’s just a small book….well, it’s more like pages, to tell the real story of Christmas. The focus of these pages are geared toward Catholic, as I used the New American Standard Bible (NASB). Any faith surely can use it though!!

If you’re interested in these coloring pages, please just….

I hope that you can use it in your classroom, homeschool, or for religious education. If you do, please be sure to leave me a comment and let me know!!

 

 

Favorite Things: December

Here’s just….

FavoriteThings-Dec15

I can’t even begin to tell you how much I love nativities!! I have them in sizes from small to large. I don’t have any giant ones though!! Some of my small ones are just the holy family. Some of my big ones have several shepherds, the wise men, and the drummer boy. I love all of them. This is my favorite one….

Fave Nativity byTheSchoolhouse

One reason that I love this one is that it’s like a children’s play. Another reason is the quality of the pieces. Can you believe that the stable isn’t actually part of the set?? HAHA It’s a piece that I got someplace else and thought they worked together perfectly. What really sets this nativity though is what it sits on. It’s actually a tree skirt, but not just any tree skirt. My mom made it. She didn’t just make it, but she won 1st PLACE in a contest with it. I’m so proud of her and I’m honored that she entrusted such a beautiful made-with-love project to me. It’s the perfect addition to this nativity!!
