Christmas Goody Bags for Preschool

I put together these Rudolph-themed goody bags for Cutie Pie’s class.  The antler headbands are from the $1 bin at JoAnn Fabrics.  B and I whipped up the reindeer treats in the test tubes for our craft fair in November.  We had a few left over so they were added to the goody bag as well.  The bag toppers were from Hobby Lobby and are leftovers from last year’s projects.  I found the big jingle bells to tie on the top at the dollar store.  Not too shabby for a relatively inexpensive gift for preschoolers.

Here is the poem that I printed to go with the Magic Reindeer Food:

Thanksgiving According to Cutie Pie

The students in Cutie Pie’s “grade” at preschool shared recipes for how to prepare a Thanksgiving meal.  It was so incredibly cute!

Catching Up

Hi everyone!  It seems I’ve taken a little blogging hiatus.  It was not a planned event just something I needed.  My motivation has been waning lately.  J’s travels coupled with B’s mother-in-law passing and family drama have completely drained me.  I’m sorry.  A little break was in order.  I can’t say I feel 100% recharged but I do feel a bit better.

Here, let me share with you a few adorable photos from today’s feast at Cutie Pie’s school.

The children dressed up as Native Americans in homemade pillowcase costumes, paper headdresses and pasta necklaces. The cuteness was too much!

I stayed after drop-off this morning to help with the feast prep and decorating.  Luckily, several moms joined me so that we were able to get everything ready to go in no time.  Turkey noodle soup, cornbread muffins, pumpkin pie, chocolate chip cookies, apple pie and drinks!  We even had time to spare to help out Cousin B’s teacher who did not parent volunteers.

The blessing was delivered by Pastor Elmer.  He announced that he will be leaving the church where Cutie Pie attends preschool to begin a new church on the mainland.  We’ll all be sad to see him go in February but wish him the best in his new adventures.

J was in town and was able to get out of work for a bit to join us!

I helped serve the turkey soup that the children prepared with their teacher.  It was really good!

It was a lovely lunch and time of fellowship with our preschool families.  We are truly blessed.

Wordless Wednesday


Yesterday the boys began the 2011-2012 school year!  Wildman is officially a first grader and Cutie Pie has entered his last year of preschool.  Both boys were excited for the first day of school.  Cutie Pie even requested to stay an extra hour for lunch bunch.  It was a happy day for my sons.  I’m proud of them.

I’m not sure what I’ll do with five free mornings a week now but I’m sure I’ll come up with something even if that is just a trip to the gym.  This morning I met up with several of my mom friends for breakfast.  Thursday mornings used to be reserved for play group but now that half of the group is in preschool five days a week our little mommy group is transitioning to a weekly breakfast club.  There are some of us who still have little ones at home on Thursdays so we’ll probably alternate between meeting at parks and meeting at restaurants.

I’m off to make dinner for my friend, B.  I might even catch up on some housework if there is time.  The excitement never ends around here!
