I know this is my teacher blog, but I'm in need of your help!  First off, I'm not a last minute planner like the hubby!  I like to have things planned out to a degree, lol.  He would probably just fly by the seat of his pants, but that makes me nervous!!  So, I need your help!! Last night the hubby and I decided this coming summer we'd like to go spend some time in Utah! I have flown over this gorgeous state and driven through parts of it, but have never really had the chance to stop and visit! So, what are the must sees, things you'd wouldn't want to miss, places we might want to stay over??  My guess is we will have a week or two to enjoy this beautiful state! Please send me your suggestions!!  Thanks, from the hubby and me!!

Baby Braxton and a Celebration!!

Hi y'all! 

It seems like it's been forever since I've posted on here.  And let me tell you, a lot has happened in these past 4 weeks.  On September 19th our family welcomed this "new" little bundle of sunshine into our lives!!  I'd like to introduce Braxton!! This little pumpkin is just 2 days old in this first picture.  He weighed 10 lbs 2.4 oz and was a whopping 23 1/2 inches long.  Momma had him naturally after 28 hours of labor.  He had a little bit of swelling from the IV fluids and trying to make a grand appearance!!  And, has been struggling to get back to his birth weight after losing all those fluids, but he is finally climbing back up there!  Yeah!!

Two weeks later momma and daddy wanted to have some pictures taken!  So, we did a little photo shoot at grandma and grandpa's house before going out for pizza!  :0)

Daddy is a big "hunter", so a friend of Braxton's mommy made him his very own "deer hat and panties".  The panties even had a little tail and the hat sported antlers!   Adorable!!  Right?!!

 I always love catching little yawns and this one was perfect!! 

I am so thankful the little guy waited until I got home from California to arrive!  I don't know what I would have done if I had missed his birth!  He is just too sweet and loves to snuggle!

I'm also celebrating a milestone with TPT!  It has taken a little while to reach, but feels wonderful knowing I've made it!  I'm celebrating by having a 15% sale over at my store till Sunday evening! 

I recently posted my October First Grade Daily Math!  My Daily Math products for kindergarten and first grade review and introduce the Common Core Standards for that particular grade level.  They spiral throughout the month/year and help the kiddos understand the concepts and build on ones from the previous months!  Here is a small sampling of what each looks like!!

I hope you'll stop by my store to pick up some "freebies" and check on the sale!!  Have a fantastic Columbus Day weekend!!
