pj day at school

Yesterday was Ella's last day of school until January. It's crazy to think that when she goes back she will be a big sister! She got to wear her pjs to school and she was loving it. I made her a Christmas shirt to go with her pj pants. I used freezer paper to make it and I totally copied the design from Smitten & Company. She makes the cutest shirts and we ordered some from her last Christmas but I didn't get on the ball in time this year so I just made my own.

It really was so easy and fast to make and Ella looked so cute and Christmasy for pj day!

Ella was very excited about giving her teacher a Christmas gift. I LOVE Ella's teacher. She really is the best teacher and Ella just adores her. I wanted to get her something I knew she would really like. Someone told me that the teachers all filled out a form at the beginning of the year that said what their favorite things were. I asked the director if I could get a copy of Ella's teacher's form and I fell in love with her teacher even more! She speaks my language for sure. Her fav snacks are all some of my fav too and her favorite store is Hobby Lobby! So I put together a little gift basket with a Hobby Lobby gift card and a few of her favorite goodies. 
Speaking of goodies, have you guys ever made the pretzel rolo treats? I'm not sure if that is what they are called but I have already made them 3 different times in the last two weeks. They are so easy and the perfect little treat to take to a Christmas party.

All you do is line a baking sheet with pretzels then place a rolo in the center of each pretzel. Put them in oven at 350 for a couple of minutes to get the rolo soft. Then press down a nut (or m&m for non nut lovers) in the middle of the rolo. It really is that easy.

rolo cookies are my favorite! We put a pecan half on top of ours, it tastes like a turtle. The candy, not that you would think we eat actual turtles but just in case :)

Allison I'm totally late to the commenting party here but I want you to know I'm going to make these pretzel rolo treats for our office party tomorrow! Reading about this totally saved me because I didn't know what I was going to do. You have great ideas!
