I have been busy!

Last week I blogged about the loss of a student. This is something that my students are still working to come to terms with. I feel that it has caused me as the teacher to stop and appreciate my students even more and it has bonded us. Before that I wanted to blog about all that I have been up to.

Here  it is!

My sweet girls turned one last week! Its hard to believe that it has been a year! We threw a big party with over 50 people. I turned to pinterest and made it my own. I was thrilled with the results and I had to share.

We made the hats and bibs using inspiration from Etsy. I am lucky to have a crafty mom. I was big on having a dessert table. I got cakes from Nothing Bundt Cake. If you have never had one and have the chance do it!!!!! Then I made a time capsule for the girls to open in 2033. People were asked to bring items for it that represented this year. We got some Duck Dynasty, Grammy CDs, People Magazines and some wonderful personalized items. 

Here are some close ups of the dessert bar and the stat posters. I also had people vote which parent they thought the girls looked like. I found pictures of my husband and I around the same age of the girls. It was fun to see the results. 

Here are my sweet girls. They really seemed to enjoy the party! They loved the smash cake too, also from Nothing Bundt Cake. It was a great day! It also took most of my free time for the month of February I am planning on using that time for creating for TPT now!

I did recently create a product that was so fun to see my kids work on. My Heritage Project this was designed to enrich my students learning about immigration. They did wonderful!!! Here is some of their great work:
Last but not least we have been working on our silent auction item. I thought long and hard about it and tried to come up with something the kids would be excited about. We are in the process of making a Minecraft Creeper table. We got a little table and then Mod Podged the paper squares on the table. The kids are so excited about it. The next step is painting the bottom green. I will post pictures soon. 

Okay, I think you are caught up for now!
