Almost Turkey Time!


Hi, Friends, Parents, Teachers, Pinners, and TpT Sellers!

I feel like I should change the name of my blog to inbetweenJetsnaps.com, haha!  I want to blog and upload more...!  Jet is getting into a good routine during the day...he usually naps at 10 am and then again in the early afternoon.  When he naps, I find myself cleaning (I am one of those who loves to clean, haha!) and responding to e-mails from buyers, etc. before I even get a chance to think about blogging or uploading!

My mom and I went to the Nutcracker Market at Reliant in Houston this past weekend and did a lot of Christmas shopping (you should have seen my car with all of Jet's travel gear on top of everything we bought at the Nutcracker)!  I found Jet some of the cutest Christmas outfits and PJs...can't wait for him to wear them!  We had so much fun and Jet loved spending time with his Mimi over the weekend!


On that note, can you believe Thanksgiving is two weeks from today?  The year is almost over...and my sweet Jet is 11 weeks old!  He is smiling so much and talking, talking, talking.  And...we made the "big move" and began transitioning him to his crib last night!  He is such a big baby and I felt like he was literally about to rock on out of his Rock and Play at night, haha!  He did so good in his crib and slept longer than he ever has (8 pm - 2:00 am and then every 2-3 hours after that...yes, that is a long time in the newborn world, haha)!  We will see if this becomes a trend and if Mommy's daily "rescue" trips to Starbucks continue! 

Along those lines, we used our Withings "Smart" baby monitor we bought at the Apple store this summer for the first time last night...and also kept us awake most of the night (and my iPhone died first thing this morning)!  They market it as "game-changing" technology and it truly is! You can talk to baby through it, zoom in and around the nursery, note the temperature and humidity...and the list goes on and on!  So neat...BUT...I went in his nursery constantly because I wanted to make sure he was a happy little sleeper...so, there was almost no need for it anyway ;-) 

Yes, yes...Thanksgiving isn't even here yet and Mommy is already dressing Jet in Christmas outfits!  Ahhh, I love my baby!


So...let's talk Thanksgiving and teaching:

I am so thankful for my beautiful, healthy baby boy and my wonderful family.  I always loved hearing about what my kindergarteners were thankful for during this time.  Such an important, special time of year.  Last year, we got all of the kindergarten classes together and had a fun Thanksgiving feast.  We talked about the Pilgrims and Native Americans, their hardships, travels, and ultimately, their friendship.  

Be sure to stop by my TpT store and preview my Thanksgiving products and FABULOUS FREEBIE (I will never forget the kindergartener who told me he would be bringing Lysol when asked what he would be bringing to our feast - ha!):

Please leave me feedback if you download the freebie :-)







Last but not least, I am also so thankful for all of my followers....and for Pinterest! Its "reach" is incredible and has really increased my sales on TpT!  Through the TpT Seller's Forum, I discovered the magic of collaborative boards and I am now currently pinning on over 30 collaborative boards!
