Tacky and a Little Snow

Well, I had every intention of going to school on Friday and taking pictures of all the Christmas things we've been working on in my class,  but ended up being a SNOW DAY! Now, I need to show you why, with these photos of my street. There is so much snow!
That's a lot right? And this tree at the end of my street, I Love it so much. It is so tall and just full of beautiful red lights, really pretty. The pic doesn't do it justice, it is soooo nice, not Rockefeller nice, but still nice. It makes me smile each time I turn the corner.
So, no class pics, but I did just finish a Tacky the Penguin Mini Pack. I love Tacky. I feel the same way about Tacky as I do about Pete the Cat, I love to love him. I'm gonna start right off in January with Tacky. It's got some labelling, sequencing, sorting, poetry and a mini book plus a few other things.

If you wanna leave me a Tacky comment before midnight tonight (23-12-12), he's all yours. I'll send him to you. 

In the meantime, I wish you a great Holiday season. Eat, Drink and be Merry, January will be here before you know it and we're probably gonna wanna diet.


  1. I love Tacky, he is soooooo fun. The kids love him too. He teaches them to be themselves and it doesn't matter what others think. Your Tacky unit looks great too.
    Have a great holiday.

  2. Love the snow pictures. So gorgeous. Would love to visit it, but can't imagine living in it (born and raised Florida gal). Loooove Tacky. Your unit looks so adorable. Also a blogging question for you. Love your font, how do you change it to show up on your blog?

  3. Tacky is my back to school unit in January. I'd love to use yours. And I agree with the question about your cool font on your blog. How do you do that?

  4. The kids all love Tacky - me too! This unit looks wonderful. I'd love to use it next month. Here in upstate NY, we got the snow yesterday & today - our 1st big snow of the year!

  5. I'm keeping my fingers crossed that we will be getting snow in Oklahoma! Your Tacky Unit looks wonderful.

    Enjoy the snow!!!

  6. OOOOOH - I LOVE Tacky! He and Pete are just the bomb.
    We had a snow day in Milwaukee, WI on Thursday. You guys got more snow than we did, though.
    I LOVE me a white Xmas!!!

  7. We always start off January with penguins and of course Tacky. Happy Holidays.

  8. I can't believe how much snow you have! Wow! We are supposed to get snow on Christmas but you never know if the weathermen will be right. Lol. I'd love your Tacky pack. He's so cute! Thank you and Merry Christmas!


  9. Am I too late?

  10. Leslie, I can't believe how much snow you got! I love Pete the Cat, so I'll have to check out Tacky when I have a little more time. I hope you and your loved ones have a wonderful holiday and a delightful new year!

  11. I love all the snow in your picture, but then I don't ever have to shovel since I live in Arizona. It sure is beautiful though and makes for a beautiful white Christmas. What state do you live in? Your Tacky packet looks so cute. I love that book.
