Better Late Than Never!

Pregnancy brain is in full gear...let me tell y'all!  As I was cleaning off my computer desktop and jump drive, I ran across an entire folder of pictures that I never posted on here!!  Goodness gracious...let me just go ahead and bless my own heart!!  Check out my photo dump below from my gender reveal party, baby shower at school and mother's day gifts to my sweetie's mommy's{not sure which of those needs an apostrophe!}.  I just can't get over that I completely forgot about this post...for almost two months now!!!   Awwww....lord help me!!
Gender Reveal Party with Family & Friends...
We did a "Little Miss/Little Mister" theme full of mustaches and bows!!
All of our guests voted and chose a bow or mustache pin to wear before we revealed the gender with balloons!  We are over the moon excited to announce that we are having a sweet baby girl!!  She is going to be one spoiled little girl and we absolutely can't wait for her to arrive!!  Now just to choose a name...more on that later!!
Gender Reveal Party with My Firsties...
On the following Monday, I revealed the baby's gender to my little darlin's!  They had so much fun!  We began by completing the following pack complete with voting, graphing and more mustaches and bows {of course they also got a bow or mustache pin to sport all day too!!}
If you have a sweet bundle on the way, feel free to use this activity!  Your kiddo's will love it!

 Before I revealed the gender, we completed Abby's Mystery Box activity.  Inside the box was a pink bib which all of the clues related to.  This was the perfect activity for the reveal!!  If you don't own this pack, you MUST buy it NOW!!!  I use it for so much!!
My kiddo's were so excited when I revealed that I would be having a little girl and let me just tell you, this baby truly felt the love by this class!  They talked to her everyday and made sure to tell her good bye each day before they left! 
Baby Shower...
Not only do my sweeties love my baby girl but so do their amazing parents!  During the last week of school, I walked into my classroom after being on the playground with my kids to find ALL of my parents in my room for a surprise baby shower!  They simply spoiled me rotten with adorable decorations, cupcakes and a mound of gifts!!
This by far was my most favorite gift!  A book made by my students all about why I will make a good mommy...melts my heart!!
Mother's Day...Finally!!
And last but not least, our Mother's Day gifts.  I did the same activity as last year {click here to check out last year's post} but spruced them up a bit!
These can easily be hung up on the refrigerator at home or on a door or cabinet handle.
All you need for this easy peasy project is the printable {click here to snatch it up...just make sure to trim to the smaller size so that you have a matting with the scrapbook paper}, scrapbook paper, ribbon and lamination {I used my handy dandy Scotch laminator which I am OBSESSED with!}.
We also completed several of Cara's activity's from her "Precious Parents" pack which I adore!!  We wrapped the coupons and book from the pack in a matching bag to accompany their pictures.
Ok... I think I am officially caught up!!  Now I need your help!  The hubby and I are trying desperately to name our sweet girl and we are struggling to say the least!  We have four names picked out...Tinleigh, Lyla, Rylan and Keightley {pronounced kite-lee}...all with the middle name Jane {which is also my middle name}.  So which one do you love...any of them, none of them, something else?  Help...I need to get to monogramming and I just can't decide!!

Hi sweet friends!  I hope y'all are enjoying your summers as much as I am!  I can't say that I have rested too terribly much but I have for sure been getting ready for this sweet baby, finishing up my last grad class ever (woo hoo!!) and getting for the next school year.  I know, I know...getting ready for the next school year already?!  I have a good explanation--besides the fact that our precious girl will be joining us in September, I also have some HUGE news....
I am moving from 1st grade to K!!!!
I am seriously over the moon excited!!  I would love to know your favorite K resources so go ahead and let loose in the comments below!!!
I also have to say that I am so sorry for not letting y'all know who won my "Silly Dilly Caterpilly" updated unit!!  I just can't seem to get ahead I tell ya!  Starting this week, I have a plan laid out for blogging and such so that I am not MIA for so long!  Sooooo...Kelli Hartman...you've got mail!!  The hubby chose number 8 as the winner and you were it!  I would love to know what you think so give me a shout when you get this pack in your inbox!!  I hope you love it!!

I am also working to update all of my word wall packs because let's be honest...they needed it!!  I have uploaded the first re-vamp here.
All of the graphics have been updated and I also added a square border around the letters to make cutting easier {I know y'all were cursing me with the way they were before!!}.
Have a blessed Sunday friends!!!

Well Hello There!!

Well hello there friends!!  I know, I know...it's been about a bazillion weeks but I'm back and it's summer.  And you know what summer means...major catch up time!!  Catch up time to blog, update units, make new units and of course work on the million home projects I have on a honey-do list {for the hubby} before this sweet baby gets here!! 
Speaking of updating units...check out my newly revised "Silly Dilly Caterpilly...Buggin' Over Sight Words" unit!  I am absolutely in love with the cute little bug clip art from Pink Cat Studio--aren't they too stinkin' adorable??

I'd love to know what y'all think of this update!!  Leave me a comment and I will randomly pick one sweet friend to send this pack to! 
Hope y'all are all having a great start to your summer!!
