Teacher gifts

Since this week is Teacher Appreciation Week I thought I would share what I am sending in with my kids each day. Monday they took in dressed-up morning coffee.
Here is what they took yesterday.

The top 10 lists were hits last year so I thought we should do them again today...another hit.





Ben's #2 thing he wanted for his birthday was an Atlanta Hawks jersey. His #1 wish was a LeBron James jersey and thanks to his Nana who searched high and low in cyberspace and spent a small fortune, he got one. All just in time for the 2nd round of the NBA playoffs who are those 2 teams. And to top that, Steve got us tickets to Game 3 in the NBA playoffs...Saturday, Hawks against the Cavs so look for us on TV...should be fun...since it's already into round 2 Atlanta and the fans are pumped up.



Here is Ben this morning strutting his LeBron James jersey and his new LeBron James shoes.

Wish we were to do the gifts this year for B's teachers, but missing it is better since we're with Jason this week!!!
Glad Ben's Grandma found the jerseys...whew, saved the bday! He looks snazzy all decked out for school.
I spy a cute star on your counter...I need to put mine out as soon as we get home. I love decorating for Memorial day and the 4th.
Oooh, and the teacher gifts you made sure must have been big hits. Love the top 10 lists~ so fun to read! Did you scrapbook them for B and M to look back on in years to come? Are you still scrapbooking a lot?

Cool gifts...I can't wait till Lexi starts school. I think it is so neat how you do all these creative things for teachers...A lot of parents don't realize how much a teacher gives to their students. I am always looking for new ideas to keep in a file for when lexi starts next year....Please share more ideas cause I will be needing some not to much longer. We start next year...she is so excited.

Wow...I must have missed your blog about Ben's birthday. I hope he had a great one...lots of goddies I see...

I love your idea for teacher gifts. They turned out really great. I think you should save all of your stamps that you are wanting to get rid of and we can do a swap when I come this summer : ) I can't wait to check out the store you mentioned yesterday!

I came over from Jenni at Nest to Keep. :) Your mantel signs are such a cute idea, and I really like the coffee idea. I'll definitely use that one. Thank you for sharing!
