We Appreciate You, Teacher!

For teacher appreciation ideas, I went to the trusty pinterest.
It did not dissapoint.
 
I thought the 'hands down' one was so cute!
It can be found here
I traced the boys' hands, cut them out, then Jacob signed his name on the back of his, and I did Levi's :)
The 'one smart cookie' can be found here
 
Jacob's school-bus driver is super nice and great with the kiddos, so I didn't want to forget about him (or at Christmas either). 
I found this idea.  Isn't it adorable?! :)

These are Hershey Nuggets that I wrapped with the free printable. 
Isn't it cute!?!

Love his chicken scratch :)
 
Funny story:
I don't recall giving gifts to any of my teachers in school. 
Not sure when the Teacher Appreciation Week started (?).
 
But I do remember in the first grade (for no apparent reason), I cut a {single} red rose off one of my mom's rose bushes.  I held it on the bus, all the way to school and was about to give it to my teacher (whom I loved), but before I could, another student came walking in with a dozen roses!!!  Obviously from a florist, too!  My little first-grader heart was broken. 
What were the chances?! 
I didn't give her the rose.  I was too embarrassed.  :( 
Now let's all say together... awwwwww.
