Teacher Appreciation Gifts

I hope I am not too late with this post...I know we had our Teacher Appreciation last week, but some schools are doing it this week, and even the following week. If you didn't get a chance to give your teacher a gift during that special week, you can always use these gifts for an End of the Year gift....

I can't take credit for these gifts...I found them along the way on the internet....I'm only creative when I can copy someone else's idea. ha!

So, here are a few ideas you can use this year (or next) to show that special teacher you appreciate them....

I got the idea for this gift from HERE....She includes the poem for you to attach to the gift. Simple and very inexpensive. I used some M&M's and a cup I bought at Wal-Mart for $1.

This cute little "A&Wesome"  idea came from HERE....another inexpensive gift that costs around $4...

 This cute idea came from HERE...the tags reads "Teachers can't live on apples alone. They need HUGS"...and it's filled with Hershey's hugs....The bucket was from the $1 at Target and a bag of Hugs were about $3.

This cute little gift came from HERE ..a simple drink container of any sort will do, ad I bought a box of Crystal light drink mixes to go in it....another cheap gift that is adorable!

 I found this idea HERE....what teacher doesn't like coffee?!?!?

 This idea came from the idea of giving the teacher something she can use to relax!!

Hopefully, this gives you some fun ideas to do with your child's teacher!!! 

Happy End of The School Year to you all!

Happy ONE Month!!

Happy ONE Month, Gibson!!

It's hard to believe this little guy is already a month old!! 

Just last month I looked like this.....

...and then Gibson was born....all 9lbs. 12oz. of him...

...and now he's already changed 10 times and looks like this...

 What are you up to now, Gibson???

* You are now up to about 12 pounds (not sure about your length)'re obviously a good eater. 100% percentile for height and weight! BIG boy!!

*You HATE baths with a sound like we are killing you when we bathe you.

*You are a little night owl. You sleep great until about 8pm..then want to stay up until 1am

*You sleep anywhere from 4-6 hours at a time at night.

*You smile here and there, but I am not sure if you do it on your own, or just as a reflex.

*You have sweet little coos that makes us laugh out loud...already a performer, making us all laugh!!

*You don't like pacifiers...instead you try to suck the back of your hand. I think you will eventually find your thumb, just like your big sisters did!
*You love to be held and rocked...and when you are put down in your swing or bouncy seat, you cry for someone to pick you up and hold you.

*You are a pretty laid back kid. Only fussy when you are hungry or crying uncontrollably for hours on end. (Thank you, Lord)

*We already don't know what we did without you in our are such a joy to be around. We love you, Gibson!
