Teacher Gift: Thank You For Helping Me Grow

Hopping on here really quick tonight to share this incredibly easy teacher gift idea. Truthfully, all the cutesy teacher gift ideas in the world aren’t going to match up to a good old gift card (amiright, teachers?!?! haha), but it’s important to me that my children take an active part in showing their gratitude to others. This idea covers both […]

Easter Bunny Basket – Simple, Thoughtful Gift Idea

Wanted to share an easy-but-cute Easter bunny basket idea that I whipped up with the kids last night! I saw these mini Easter bunny baskets at Tar-jay several weeks ago and snagged a few to use for teacher gifts. Eloise has 3 teachers in her preschool class and Mikey has his.

Some of you may recall from that unexpectedly popular post back in March that he specifically requested Batman as a party guest. (He later added Iron Man and Captain America to that list.) Now, here’s the thing. I know […]

A Baby Valentine’s Day

You guys. I love Valentine’s Day. The kids love Valentine’s Day. Hubby loves Valentine’s Day… now. He didn’t used to, but I am very convincing! 😉 It was Valentine’s Day  and Hubby had to work his regular shift, so we had a Baby Valentine Breakfast. One thing I’ve learned over the last few years of parenting is that pretty creativity […]

Turkey Round Up

Remember in my last post how I said I narrowed down our turkey projects to just a couple? I totally did, I promise. And then we did this one, and the kids went wild, and Mikey literally started every day with, “Mommy, what’s our turkey project today- I’m so excited!” So, yeah. We ended up with a few extras. haha […]

Back to School 2014

We officially went back to school yesterday! I love the excitement of the whole back-to-school time and last-day-of-school time, so even though the kids are little and we’re just homeschooling for now, we still mark the beginning and end of our official school year together! Here’s to another amazing year of teaching and learning together! If you like what you […]
