Teacher Appreciation Week

I really wanted to make sure Emma's teacher knew how much I appreciated all that she had done for Emma this year.  I know she has put a lot of time and effort into my little girl.  I don't know if I could ever really express how grateful I am for all she has done.  So I decided I wanted to try to have Emma bring something everyday.  So day one I went with a classic.  Emma brought her a nice shiny apple.  Sorry I forgot to take a picture, but to make it special I cut a leaf shape out of green paper, wrote Thank You  on it and taped it around the stem of the apple.

Day 2 I made little boxes of cookies.  The picture is crappy, but the boxes were cute.  I used my silhouette to cut them out and I really loved the scallops on the lid.  For the cookies I used my favorite recipe from bake@350.     

When wednesday rolled around I had been so busy that I didn't get it ready in time and we didn't have anything for that day.  sad.

For Thursday we made a thank you card.  I had Emma write Thank You on the inside and then I wrote a little note to let Mrs. Friz know how much I appreciate all she has done this year.

I saved the best for last.  On Friday Emma brought her a snappy top bag filled with a few goodies.


  1. Awe! I bet the teacher loved this. I would be in tears every single day. You're the best momma!

  2. Wow, you did better than me, but I totally agree that Mrs Friz is the best teacher ever! She has done so much for my girls too and beyond just teaching them math and reading. We will be hard pressed to find a better teacher anywhere. We'll miss having her and having Emma as a friend too.
