Teacher Appreciation Gift

Hello friends!

The school year is winding down and it's teacher appreciation week at school.We asolutely love L-O-V-E Buckaroo's kindergarten teacher, so we wanted to give her a personalized useful gift. I'm one of those 'ask-what-they-like-or-need' girls, so i did just that. Turns out she luvs gardening, so oh yes you know i so went to the extremes of "thanks for helping me grow" pandamonium going around. or at least i thot i was under buckaroo saw the chalkboard stake and promptly declared, "oh momma, i HAVE to write i luv my teacher, because i do!"
Seriously makes my heart happy!
One time he told me that he accidently called his teacher momma, he didn't want to tell me cuz he thought it would hurt my feelings. i told him it didn't hurt my feelings at all, as a matter of fact, it made me super happy because it made me feel good about him being at school all day and i knew he was happy and well taken care of.
Look at those sweet little hands! my heart jsut squeezes!

So we went to Target and looked around (i had a $10 gift card from Ebates) and the dollar spot has a TON of spring things! We gathered a watering can, gardening gloves, two different hand gardening tools, two garden stakes. At Walmart i got seeds, Mammoth Sunflowers, Forget-Me-Nots, lavender and Old fashioned Garden Mix.Tucked a $5 Sonic gift card in there and had buckaroo presented it with a Rt.44 cherry limeaide with 5 extra real cherries - yes we are tight! I firmly believe it isn't the amount you spend but more of usefulness, I spent less than $20 (drink, gift card and all the stuff).
I wish it was a little fuller, but it still looked good!

Jeffrey (buckaroo's big brother) and I had lunch with him and he gave it to her along with her Rt. 44 cherry limeaide. I think everyone had a good time yesterday at lunch!

She luved it and can you tell how many pix i take of him look at how he posed his hands on the drink, HA!

Can you tell someone is happy his bubby came to eat lunch with him? lol. and to be exact there is 17.2 years difference between them. Jeffrey was a senior when we had cor, I tell everyone THIS is the new part that i've not been thru yet, altho in another 1.5 yrs it will seem like deja vu. Jeffrey was 8 when Bubba Hubster and I married.

I hope I gave u an idea or two for gifts and didn't over load you on pix!

In His Luv & Wisdom,
