party month.

april is a super crazy month for us.
josh's birthday!
anna's birthday!
then, the end of the school year!
all within a couple weeks.
so i'm trying to plan ahead a little.

anna and i hit up the dollar sections at tarjay and michael's.
we decided on a cupcake themed sleep-over party for her.
josh is thinking maybe a drive-in movie with pizzas for him.
and we decided that maybe we should get the teachers easter and end-of-the-year gifts too.
we decided that gardening gloves, flower seeds and little bird houses (that the kids will paint) are a perfect lovely, and heartfelt, gesture.

all i need to get now are a couple of flower pots--and i'm thinking the kids should paint the teacher's name on the sides just for fun.
one year we did beach towels as a gift and they were loved too.

i think teachers just need something personal and they are happy.
as for me, i just want to make it through this special month with my sanity in tact, so getting an early start really helps.

I love Target's dollar section. It gets me in trouble every time :) They are so good at keeping the inventory fresh.

I'm stealing the beach towel idea! Love the simplicity and I have 6 teachers to do! You are so crafty!
