Teacher Gifts!

Good Thursday Morning!

I have been extememly busy since yesterday morning. Autumn had her kindergarten screening in the morning, I then dropped her off at her other school, ran out to do errands, finished just in time to pick Autumn back up again, came home and ate lunch, made chocolate pretzels for Autumn's school tonight, made yumilicious cupcakes for four teachers at Autumn's school, made stuffed shells for dinner, handfolded origami boxes, made cards and tags, ate dinner, cleaned up dinner, went to a meeting for Taryne at the middle school, came home at 8:30 and read Autumn bedtime stories, put on my pj's and attempted to read, but I didn't get very far. Here are some photos of the treats and gifts!

Pretzels with melted hershey kisses, and topped with an M&M (YUM!)

Black Bottom mini cupcakes (YUMMIER!)

Little Birdie thank you cards and origami boxes.

Completed gifts ready to be given out.

This morning I put all the cupcakes into the boxes, tied on the ribbons and tags, and they turned out very cute!

I've also been meaning to list a card for sale that I made days ago but haven't had the time. I do have about a half and hour now, so I'll be attempting that next. Here are some photos of that card.

Well I'm off to list this card right now, then I pick Taryne up early from school and drop her off at my Mom's, pick Autumn up at school and go back to my Mom's, bring Taryne to a piano audition which is a VERY big deal, and is SO important that you can put it on your college applications. Then we come home for a bit, eat dinner and we're off again to Autumn's Family Night at school which is also a little graduation (very sad). Then another day is done ~ and tomorrow will be a better one! Well not better, just not as hectic!

Bye for now!

  3. Those treats look awesome!!

  4. OMG......I"m exhausted from reading what you did today. And I thought I was busy doing my errands. To think, we do about five people's work in a day and at the end of the day, it seems like there's nothing to show for it except bags under our eyes (on mine anyway), bizillion miles on the car, empty gas tank, lighter wallet, and a list of things we have to do tomorrow.

    At least you have these great gifts to show how your day was. They are so cute; the teachers are LUCKY to have you as a parent in their classes.

    Great job, Mom!
