What I did on my Christmas Vacation

 I know I have been kind of quiet the last few weeks. As you know I got a much needed break from school. We have been very busy before and after the holidays especially with the variant on the rise.   On the first day back I had to cover four different teachers at different parts of the day.  It has been a little bit easier the last couple of days, but only time will tell.  

While we were on break though, here are some of the things that happened.  

I think the most unusual present I got this year was my Chris for Christmas puzzle book from my brother.  He knew I would love it because I love several actors named Chris (Hemsworth, Evans, Pratt, and Pine :)) My favorite is definitely Hemsworth.  If you would like a book of Chris's for yourself or a friend I found it online, and it's currently 50% off.  Chris for Christmas Book   

One of my favorite presents was this farmhouse red Christmas truck from Aldi from my daughter. We found it for only $4.99 at Aldi the day after Christmas. I love it, and can't wait to decorate with it during the holidays. 

I spent a week in Ohio with my boyfriend and his kids. We went to a really cool light show called Land of Illusion in between Dayton and Cincinnati. 

I set up a Hot Chocolate Bar that week which was a huge hit.   

We had to wash the mugs several times, because they were used often.  Add the marshmallows and peppermint definitely upped the yum factor. 

We celebrated this girls 2nd birthday.  She turned two on Christmas.  We got her as a pup right before the Covid shutdown in 2020. 

We made a traditional turkey dinner  

and then made one of my favorite holiday dishes, leftover turkey pizza.  It was the first time I made it for his kids.  They loved it, and all 3 pizza were gone by the next day.  

D and I celebrated New Years Eve at the dance we like to go to on Friday nights. :) It was a lot of fun. 

Then on Jan 2nd, my boys played each other in an amazing game. (I love both Joe and Patrick) Being a long time Bengal fan though, I was VERY HAPPY with the outcome. 

On Monday and I was THRILLED to find part of the Beachy Keen Fairy Garden at Dollar Tree.  It is so cute! 
Adorable gnomes are living their best life with so many cute accessories.  They are currently selling them online at the Dollar Tree.    They have the Sweets Fairy Garden set which is adorable as well.  

I also added a new Vision, Manifestation, Goal Planner to my Etsy Shop DancingUnicornbyPam, and if are interested, it's currently 20% off.  

I would love to hear what you did over the holidays. Comment below if you would like to share.
