Hey Day!! {Teacher Gift}

Friday was “HEY DAY” at pre-school! A time for the kids to go in and see their new classroom and meet the teacher. I thought it would be a nice idea to take a little something.I bought 2 boxes of Altoids Mints, wrapped them in this cute polka dot paper and attached a little note that said “YOU WERE MINT TO TEACH!” Very inexpensive, yet a thoughtful way to say “HELLO”!!

Cowboy Treats!

Happy Halloween!! This is outfit #1. As at 2 yrs 3 mos Little j has developed an opinion. And, it is a strong one, not unlike that of both his parents. Anyhoo, this adorable yet, somewhat large outfit was shared with us and he loved it! This is what he wore to his party at pre-school. Isn’t it cute? Here is the finished product on the monogrammed Moon Pies!! I went with sprinkles. The great stickers came from my fav ebay store Tiny Prints Wall Art & More.

Here is j’s Halloween Treat Basket!! I love this it is a plastic pail that has been painted~LOVE!! I wanted to find something that he could use for years. I think this works. I got it while on my Girl’s Weekend to Myrtle Beach at Anything Joe’s a favorite store for all things personalized & monogrammed!!Trick or Treat! The trick is on all the Mommies & Daddies here in NC~ there is a monsoon hitting us! Are you kidding? Rain! It has rained almost every weekend this fall and I am NOT liking it at all. Luckily for us j doesn’t even get the door to door candy beg that is the ritual of this holiday. He just thinks we suddenly have a dozen kids in our neighborhood! The weather actually broke for about a hour and a half the rain stopped and after buying $40 worth of candy we only got 10 treaters and of the 10 NONE of the children even said “trick or treat” they just rang the bell and held open their bags! There was 1 bunch of 3 boys probably around age 7, when they walked up and saw j they screamed “Mommy, the cowboy has a gun!!! (If you have hand gun issues PLEASE do not bring them to me. I am just telling a story.) The last set of girls came and j said “hey neighbors” the older of the 2 girls, again probably 7 or 8 said “hey, i think we invited you to our party tonight, she then precedes to say oh yea never mind, he’s too young and you’re too old” THANKS!!!!!!
