I promised to share our teacher gifts.. so "TA-DA!" (grin) Both my kiddos said their teachers liked gardening. This may or may not be true and could also have merely been an impression they got simply by hearing that a teacher did "yard work" all weekend. I'm just saying. Kids, you know? They assume.
Regardless, we're going to go with it for the sake of argument because this is what the hoodlums wanted to make/give. Potted herbs. Last year, they got breakfast in a bucket. Which was super cute but my kids suddenly have opinions on these things.
magnet letters at JoAnns. Then the kiddos wrote a note on the backsides, and dangit, but I forgot to read JJ's! His random, unfiltered notes are always the best for entertainment. I normally photocopy them. I'll have to make them all into a book and give it to his future wife someday.
And then we'll all roll around on the floor laughing our heads off at things like JJ filling out a questionnaire and writing that one of his goals for the future was to "have a fulfilling 401K."
Adrain may or may not have rolled on the floor when I read that one.
And we may or may not have photocopied the entire thing and brought it out for future laughs.
And I may or may not have snuck a photocopy of it to my parents so they could laugh too.
Sweet, and simple. I hope it helped our teachers know that they are so appreciated. Do you do teacher gifts too?
And now.. for this yummy little recipe!
Deliciously Inspired shared a recipe for these yummy looking Stuffed apples. So simple, quick and fun, and my hoodlums went nuts about them.
