Okay, so if you get one of these from me.... just act surprised, okay? I have two more pages... I know you just can't wait! :)

*I didn't read back through this one yet, so let me know if there's any typos.


  1. so cute! I also like (for neighbors) HO HO HO Merry Christmas from the ding dongs next door-- with both ho hos and ding dongs :)

  2. We take the label off of hand sanitizer and the kids put on seasonal stickers. This could work with soap bottles too.

    We give it to their teachers with back to school stickers, but you could do any season. Actually last year, in kindergarten, we changed the stickers on all of Mrs. Kelley's sanitizers monthly. Andrew loved it. If you are going to be refilling the bottles and taking the stickers off, clear stickers work the best.

  3. I just made canned apple pie filling and am thinking of giving it to the kids teachers with a poem about A is for apple but that is boring, Chop it up and add sugar and spices and watch it multiply into something yummy and filling. But, when it comes time to divide you might want to run away and hide

  4. Lacy Lacy Lacy I have so many he he. One that I haven't seen up post is "You've been bad so here's the scoop, you're gettin' nothin' but reindeer poop." With some Whoppers. Or you can say snowman poop with some Marshmellos. Kevin's not fond of these ones ha ha.

  5. These are all so creative! I am so glad you posted these. Some have a little cheesy to them, but that's what makes it even more fun! Can't wait to jot some of these down to use as gift ideas. Thanks girl!
