New Year - BIG Changes!

Happy 2011 everyone!!! I hope that each of you had a Merry Christmas, ours was absolutely wonderful! My brother and sister in law came for a visit a few days after Christmas, it was nice to see them both and Addison really enjoyed seeing her Uncle K and Aunt J!
I have several favorite Christmas gifts that I want to share over the next few weeks, but the first one is a devotional book that came from my mom.
I cannot say enough about this book each day has a short devotional and it is written as Jesus is actually speaking to the reader. I have loved reading these during my quiet times at night before bed, and just reading all of the promises that He has for me and my life. I also found that there is a Jesus Calling app for the iPhone which is the same as the book - I encourage anyone to check it out. You can go HERE to read a few pages of the book.

On December 26th this little man arrived!! Congrats to my sister in law and her hubby on the birth of William Anderson Fambrough - we are so excited to finally have a BOY on Shawn's side of the family.

And I FINALLY have started student teaching!! I am at Kate Bond Elementary School and loving every second of it except for one part, I am ALREADY sick!! This is my first week and I already have a pretty rough head cold and ear infections in both ears. I went to the minor med clinic this morning, so hopefully I will be good to go by Monday. I am missing my 1st graders all ready! I have really switched into teacher mode, I have found myself coming home every night and looking on the net for different lesson plans and activities that I can do with the kids. I am working on some cute things for the 100th day of school so if any of you teachers out there have any ideas please send them my way!!
