Merriment Chain ~ Day 23 ~ Snowman Poop and Mistletoe

I usually purchase gifts for the teachers and put them in pretty gift bags, this year I got a little more creative.  Nothing big, but it seems more meaningful if there is more thought and creativity behind it.
My youngest goes to pre-school where there is 1 main teacher (she actually got a "real" gift delivered to her home) and 3 para's.  This is what I made for the aids in her classroom.

This is what the older two are giving their teachers.

Today is the day.  You know, the one where everything has to be done?  The laundry, the packing, the cleaning, the baking, ect.  
I also have to go to the school to help out with a fundraiser and run to the store for some last minute things.  Oh ya, and to the bank.
The girls have their school Christmas Concert tonight.  I love those things. All the kids are required to wear dresses and ties and everything looks really nice.  Everyone from every one's family comes to watch.  It's just a really nice time.
Have a great day.

Hi sweet Steph----I've seen the Snowman poop before..but it has always been in a bag with a header ....this is SOOO much cuter! And the gift the older girls are giving , I'm sure will be appreciated when they paint their Mistletoes! ;)I hope you will post a pic of the concert--love those. I can still picture Craig dancing the Mexican hat dance with a little girl, with a big sombrero on!! :) I hope Middle is doing well now.---Jan

What fun teacher gifts! I was a tad lazy and just did foaming soap, Starbucks gift cards and candy. No creativity whatsoever...:( Enjoy your evening!

You're making me wish I taught "little ones" instead of "big ones." What sweet and thoughtful gifts - too fun! Yeah, that panic thing is taking hold here too - and I don't have a smidgen done what you do. Moved my mum not a fun day whatsoever..... Catch a breath and carry on Super Mom!! Smiles & Hugs ~ Robin

Stephanie, you are indeed creative! You will put some smiles on some faces! Enjoy the concert. I bet everything will get done. Everything. If something doesn't it will be forgotten soon. Enjoy.BTW how is the dog bite?

Very cute! I am a teacher, and I approve of these gifts. I like the mistletoes. I have NOT been naughty. Don't believe any rumors you hear... They are NOT true...

I agree with everyone else, easier said than done, slow down and enjoy the moments. What needs to be done will get done... It's the fellowship that is the thing...

When are you leaving? Remember last week you wished this day was here quickly and now it is. I don't know when you are going or how long you will be gone but please know I wish you, hubby and your beautiful girls a very special time with family and a Christmas filled with joy and memories!
Be blessed,
