Second grade, here we come!


Feeling more than a little sad this morning as we send him off to second grade. He’s growing up before our eyes, such a sweet, cute boy.



But I can’t help but notice the changing smile as the years pass.



Second grade, here we come!


I can’t wait to go pick him up and hear all about his day. I think I’ll bake him a cake.

Happy Easter!


Easter party

This is what I love about being room mom for Alfredo’s class…


Easter basket treat cups, made with shallow cups from Target (I added a pipecleaner handle) and filled with Easter grass, Annie’s bunny snacks, a box of Starburst jellybeans, and a Peep. We have some serious allergies in our class so treats are always a challenge. These three treats got the green light from all the parents.



And these are the little gifts each student will take home. Aren’t these tiny bags adorable? Found them at Michael’s. Love the googly eyes! ┬áDon’t they look fun all lined up and ready to go?

look what I found


I was searching through photos this weekend and found this one of Alfredo at about 14 months. I think he had just gotten up from a nap and I was trying, without much success apparently, to do a little photo shoot. You can even see little nap wrinkles on his face! This picture makes me wish I could go back in time and just cover him in kisses. Luckily, he still lets me cover him in kisses 6 years later!


Alfredo’s house

Alfredo joined me in my freshly cleaned craft room today and made this:

Can you believe how adorable that house is (and that boy!)?

I was playing around with Brenda Walton’s new Country Cottage die from Sizzix and Alfredo wanted to make one too. He did great…even lining up the scallop roof! He picked glittery paper for the house and shiny silver metallic paper for the roof. Great choices, right? It looks so adorable.

Best of all, the whole house is hinged so we can tuck in a little battery powered tea light. He wanted to put a little ornament of a teddy bear on a rocking horse in there too. So cute!

 I think this might be our Christmas craft gift from Alfredo this year! He loved making it and can even almost operate the Big Shot on his own!
