Happy Thanksgiving Coloring Sheet- FREE!

I made myself a promise that I wouldn't do much Pampered Chef work over the next couple of days, so I decided we would have a morning of painting, Play-doh and cleaning (we are hosting Thanksgiving this year).  So, I made this simple little page for Sara to paint and give to family members.  She LOVES to paint!!! Feel free to snag it.

Happy Thanksgiving!!!!

Has it really been that long???

You know that awkward moment when you haven't logged into blogger for over 4 months and can't remember your password... yeah so, that just happened. ugh!!!

I promise I have had really good intentions to blog and even start tot school with my sweet girl the first of September, but I suppose I should just say life happens.  No need for all the details, but in case you are interested I will recap the last 4 months in pictures.

Ice cream date with mom

My girl started in ballet and LOVES it!!!!

Went to the Zoo a few times.

Took swimming lesson

Kept mom on her toes...

But, thankfully she still takes naps. phew!

I went to the Pampered Chef National Conference and LOVED every minute of it!

We helped Pops in the garden.

We celebrated 7 years of marriage!!!

We finally closed on our dream home!!! Yahoo!!!

but had to move into it.... lol

I had a HUGE yard sale.  Still have a ton of junk to go through.. 

Finally, starting to slow down and actually get to play with my girl some mornings.

I mean come on-- look at how cute this picture is.

I started to decorate a little...

We went to the beach with my family!!! It was a much needed vacation.

I created this board for the 35th anniversary celebration of Pampered Chef a week or so ago.

I met Doris Christopher!!! OMG- I was so excited!!! She is an incredible woman. So thankful to her for her courage of starting this amazing company. She has changed the lives of millions of people and mine is one of them!

I had my 10 year high school reunion this weekend. It was so much fun seeing some of my friends.

And now I am going to just say, I will try my best to blog 2-3 times a month. I am not promising because life these days is just so different and crazy, but I want to try! 

I hope you have a wonderful week!!!

Target Dollar Spot for your Classroom

Today I had to hop on the blog to share some of the awesome finds I saw in the Target dollar spot.  I'm not in the classroom anymore, but I am planning to start a "Tot School" in the Fall at home with my sweet girl.  She is more than ready.  Only 2 and she can identify all her letters, shapes, colors and some of her numbers.  I'm not sure where she gets it... I'm guessing her dad.  I have never had book smarts.  I am the creative type.  Anyway, I picked up a few things I thought would be fun to use with her, and thought I'd share what I found with you guys.

Big Dice!
I used these all the time for Math Centers in Kindergarten.  These are the perfect size for Sara.  I won't have to worry about her putting them in her mouth.  She doesn't do it often, but I'm not taking any chances.

These are small shapes (triangle, heart, circle, square, etc..)
You could ID shapes, graph them, sort them, use as counters, addition, the list goes on!

I can't wait to use these when practicing letters.  I know she will love them!

We didn't buy this, but I had to share.  In my classroom we had a kitchen with hardly any food, but I never really wanted to spend much money on it bc we rarely played in it.. 

What teacher doesn't love some Mod Podge?!?! Only a $1 at Target. Yahoo!!

I hope you all are having a fabulous summer!!!

PS- I had to share this video, because it's so me when I go to Target without my girl.

Easter, Bunny-Mallows and a FREEBIE!

We had the best Easter weekend.  It was filled with family fun, great food, lots of sweets, egg dying, a wonderful church service and two egg hunts!  After all that Easter fun, I was a bit inspired to create a fun graphing activity to go with these Bunny-Mallows I found at the store.

Sorry it's a little late, but it can still go along with your Spring activities. :)

Click the picture below to grab it for FREE!

 Here are a few pics from our family Easter egg hunt.  I was worried about how many eggs she would get this year, and let me tell ya-- this girl was a pro!  Her bag was so heavy... I kept asking her to let me carry it and she refused until I finally just took it away! haha She is a mess.  It truly was the best weekend!!!
