Teacher Appreciation Week...

I found some awesome blogs with lots of amazing ideas for Teacher Appreciation week!
They are also great gift ideas for anyone really!

First: at how does she?
I really LOVE these pads of paper and that you can get 6 done for a little bit of money! Also love the idea of letting the kids decorate the sides of it!

Second: at Gluesticks I just Love the Cute Brown Bag Apple Gift Sacks!

Third: at Skip to my Lu These are so cute to put in a pot of flowers!

Forth: at Anything but perfect, really cute idea get a tumbler (bed bath & beyond) and put a gift card to Starbucks inside!

These are what Samantha and I made for her teacher's! She was mad that I didn't have all the supplies Sunday to finish them up. OH, my she had to wait one more day to deliver them!

I think they turned out good!

VIsit from my parents

We had a good visit. They stayed at the beach. Sam spent the night once with them. Wish they would have stayed closer to the house or with us. We just didn't really get to spend as much time with them as I thought we would have. Everyday they came over around 10am never went out to breakfast Really wanted to take them to the Broken Egg Bistro. I love it there! They didn't want to plan anything so it was, fly by the seat of your pants. I much rather plan. The Monday they were here we went to Yorktown (my dad picked). We got there and everything was closed on Mondays! One day we went to the beach didn't last 30 minutes had to leave because Samantha was sick. (ok with me, it was really windy down there and Jack was screaming, from getting slapped with sand) They could have came back to the house with me and just hung out.

Then they went back to the hotel around 3pm daily. Except the day we cooked out at Jim & Brenda's.
