We Love our Teachers!

Who doesn't love teachers? I know I am a nerd but most people have fond memories of teachers in their lives. Missy has been in preschool for 2 years and has been so lucky to have such bright and kind teachers. I had been thinking for some time how I would like to have Missy's teachers over during the summer for a BBQ or an ice cream social.
I knew I wanted to say Thank you for all they do day in and out..However, when I heard Ms. Kristian was leaving the state, my plans had to be sped up. I had less than a week to plan something.. I decided on a lunch at our house and luckily 2 out of 3 were free this afternoon.. Unfortunately, Ms. Lisa couldnt join us as she had a baseball game to be at this afternoon. Missy will have to take the gifts along to school for her.
Ms. Kristian who is moving back to Louisiana after a 6 yr stint here arrived first. I wasn't quiet ready for her but she was a good sport and watched me spin around for last minute details.. We wish her the best as she finishes her degree to become a teacher..
Miss Pam was right on time and even wearing the colors of the apron I made her. That to me was a good sign that I had picked the right colors..

Missy was so excited to see them at her house, on her turf, at the dining table.. She was a perfect little hostess offering to help and providing random trivia for interesting conversation..

The aprons and fabric books were a hit. My Pencil vases served as both centerpieces and take home gifts..

We ate, we talked, we indulged on cheesecake for dessert.. What could be better?
After running around for the past few days racking my brain on what to serve and how to present it all in the end it was all about sharing time and stories with two lovely ladies who have a special place in Missy's memories and heart..
Have a great day and don't forget to thank all your teachers..


  1. You are such a wonderful hostess. I'm sure the teachers felt your appreciation and Maya's love. The smile on Maya's face is priceless!

    Where are pictures of the aprons??? You better have pictures!

  2. I forgot to tell you - I love that you have the Bee Gees on your playlist :)
