Something from Nothing: Christmas Trees

The first grade teachers I work with (and happen to love) came to celebrate Christmas with me at my house yesterday.

After some comfort food and an ornament exchange, we sat around the table in the dining room and folded trees. That's right. Folded them.

What started out like these...

turned out like these.

Love. Love. Love.

Sometimes the simplest things are the best things. Just like friends around a table laughing and sharing things like our pets' names and holiday plans and such. Things we never have time to talk about at school.


  1. Danielle said your potato soup was great!! The trees are such a cute idea, I'm excited to get mine glittered tomorrow. :)

  2. The potato soup is one of my favorite recipes. It's easy and I usually have all the ingredients. I'll post it soon!


Make my day and leave a comment. I read every single one.
