var addthis_pub="patcollgallagher";Here are a few quick Christmas treats!!  **Remember the Gingerbread House Party here?  We had a neighbor that could not come so I packed up the house with a package of icing and some candy for decorating.  My neighbor and her kids were thrilled to work on the house together.  I thought this would make a cool gift for a neighbor with kids. **For my daughter’s preschool class of 9, I ordered the $1.00 Scholastic Book, Bear’s First Christmas.  I had a recording of...

A precious song from the 1974 show, “T’was the Night Before Christmas”This has to be my favorite Christmas TV show. I remember watching this when I was a kid. Last year I searched everywhere to find this on DVD or even on TV to share with my kiddos. I could find it on VHS but never on DVD. I hit the jackpot this year however.

var addthis_pub="patcollgallagher"; I have loved the Polar Express since I first read it to my class when I was student teaching.  It touched my heart and made the magic of Christmas shine a little brighter.  Since that first Christmas season when I first took a ride through the pages of the Polar Express, I began reading it to all my classes.  I also based a week of lessons on a Christmas Train theme.  In 2004 I was ecstatic when the Polar Express came to the theaters!!!  It was my son (who is now 8) first movie...
