I'm going to New Jersey on Thursday...

...and I am going to a couple of birthday celebrations for Ella.....

Although her actual birthday is on Thursday, by the time I get there I figured I'm be pretty pooped..

So, for the first one on Friday... we're going to her pre-school for a little party....with CAKE..and maybe a few cupcakes...

She has an adorable class of adorable little kids....






..and not one but 2 great teachers...Mr. Rafael...



...and Ms. Rodriguez..



So, because they do what seems to me to be a tremendous service to all of the families in the community and to the parents and grandparents of their students in particular..I wanted bring them a VERY small token of my gratitude. I decided every teacher could use another notebook..

So, I bought some of these plain ones and dressed them up a little bit...



..ever tried to use your scrapbooking supplies for a guy?? Not easy...




The back of this one says "Patience is a virtue.."

I will try, without gushing, thank them for a very difficult, trying, tiring, wonderful, fulfilling job teaching, watching, caring for and protecting my grand daughter and so many others.

I am truly...........Grateful........

I miss NJ and can't wait to get back for a visit! My husband grew up on the shore and we always have such fun when we go back there!
Enjoy!
