Need Your Help!

This is totally unrelated to teaching, but completely about kids! Same difference, right?? As I type I'm on a Disney bus headed to Downtown Disney to get some shopping on!! Today, the charity that I'm involved in, Dreams Come True, is in a contest against 5 others to win a Toyota vehicle. If you have a moment, please cast a vote for DCT. The vehicle would be used to travel the state interviewing kids. I hope the link above works since I'm typing this on my phone. If you would like more info on DCT, visit Thanks!!!!!!

Here's my attempt!! :)

I received the most adorable Mickey Mouse coasters and fleur de lis print from Mechele at

She did her research!  I L-O-V-E anything and everything Disney!!  Seriously...I'm rather obsessed!  
So these coasters were a hit in my household!  
How stinkin' cute are these!!!!????

Love this!  I couldn't make the glare go away, but it is adorable in real-life!  

Thanks Mechele!  :)

I will be posting some examples from our stuffed animal slumber party by the weekend.  I wanted to post them sooner, but was out sick when they revised/edited and wrote their final drafts, and well--while the cat's away the mice will be slackers!!!  There were some really cute ones though!
Having said that, the kids bought the whole party and photos HOOK--LINE--and SINKER!!!  Their faces were priceless when they watched the slideshow! 

We are learning about weather, and I needed a math homework sheet this week, so I created this:
