New ornament

I almost forgot to show you......each year we get the kids an ornament with, hopefully, it depicting the interests of the year.....so I present you with the coolest ornament of the year......

It was 18.95 at Hallmark, which normally would make me break out in hives for a minute.....but ya'll know my obsession with HP and all.........I mean, HIS obsession with HP.  Yes his....yes.....my son.......sorry.
It was the only place I could find any Harry Potter ornaments, so unless you all know something I don't on where to find them, Hallmark is your place!!!

Teacher Gifts

So, every year I struggle with teacher gifts. During the year I can think of all these cute, creative, fun, different things to do for the teachers......but then December rolls around and I suddenly doubt myself and my creativeness and go with a gift card. Practical, yes. Fun, cute and creative, notsomuch.

This year Michael's has these ADORABLE bird cages for a dollar, thankyouverymuch, and I bought a bunch. I got each of our 3 teachers a Target gift card (cause really.....is there another store to shop at???) and put it in the cage with my favorite winter candies....Brachs christmas nougats (thank you, btw, Brachs for NOT changing the name to "holiday nougats" or some other wimpy cop-out name)
