100th Post and January Currently!

This is it!  My 100th post!  Destined to go down in blogging history...or at least make me happy because it is a significant even number:).  Happy New Year's everyone!

Except for the last one, these really don't need any explanation.  However, I would like to point out that my neighbor has been mowing his lawn forever, and that he has been known to actually measure his grass.  Not to rub it in to my bloggy buddies in the colder portions of the country, but I am waiting to mow the lawn because the sun is too bright and it is too warm right now.  I am a pale white girl - according to one of my favorite students, "Don't take this the wrong way, but you are the whitest person I have ever met, except on TV," - and I have to be careful with my fragile milk white complexion (not to mention that I avoid people seeing me in direct sunlight, not all that flattering at my age).

As for the Santas, I love them!  Several of them have been in the family for as long as I can remember.
This Santa, with his reindeer and sleigh, is my absolute favorite.  Somewhere along the way his hat got broken, but I still love him.  I would stare at him for hours, thinking that he was magical and would come to life if I sat very quiet - growing up, we did not have TV for several big chunks of time, and I had a vivid imagination.  Since I loved him so much, I got him.  Recently, I have been on a quest to find a matching set, because he needs more reindeer.  The fact that he only had two reindeer, really bothered me as a child.

Before you click on over to Farley at Oh' Boy 4th Grade to check out what everyone else is up to, I wanted to let you know that I just changed my Skip Counting Cards to a forever freebie.  
It was my original intention to do so, but then I had ISSUES with finalizing them and got cranky.  Now, I am over it.  I figure if you need Skip Counting Cards, you really need them.  Enjoy!

While you are over at Farley's visiting old friends and acquaintances, make sure you check out a few new blogs too!


  1. Susan, congrats on your 100th post. What a great day for that milestone! My girls and my husband love fudge. My mom always makes them some each year. Last year they fought over who ate it all. So this year she got smart and made them each their own container! My youngest even went as far as to count how much she had in hers! Happy New Year!

  2. Hi Susan! 100 posts for the new year is a nice number- congratulations! I am glad to have found you through currently and happy to be a new follower! I love that you still have that Santa from when you were a child. I tend to hold on to special things like that too. I love to feel memories flooding back every year and I unwrap the Christmas decorations. I'm always a little sad when it's time to pack it all up! Santa looks very happy up there on your mantel!! I wonder if you ever got around to mowing that lawn? We are awaiting a snowstorm here, so I am very envious!

  3. What a way to start a new year! Congrats on your 100 posts! I love that your neighbor is mowing the lawn and we're buried under several inches of snow (and still accumulating!). At least it gave me a good excuse to stay in my pajamas all day! :)
