It's a teacher work day for me today, and the kids will be back tomorrow. Here's a look at what's been happening lately, clockwise from top left:
Deer: my sister and I made the trek into Waikiki to see the gingerbread extravaganza displayed by a hotel each winter. These deer were posed outside a gingerbread Japanese temple. The gingerbread creations also included the Eiffel Tower, the Sydney Opera House, and local landmark Aloha Tower.
Carnations: A sweet gift from a student.
Goofy: I picked up a silly ornament to commemorate our first Christmas as an ol' married couple.
Olivia: I took some style inspiration from Olivia for my Bringing Books to Life dress-up day.
Dots: This Target dress drew raves from both co-workers and the husband.
