Teacher Appreciation

Hello!  Happy Thursday!  The weather has turned to unbelievably cold today!  Apparently tonight will be one of the coldest this winter!  Thankfully I've been home all day with no plans on going anywhere!  This week it's Staff Appreciation at my daughter's school and a letter was sent home asking if we the parents would like to provide a meal, dessert, fruits, veggies for one of the lunches for the staff.  Also on the Hero Arts flickr group my fellow hostesses and I decided to have a cooking up hostess challenge in the flickr group, you can see it here I decided to combine the two!  I made an oreo cheesecake to send for the Staff for lunch!  It's a super easy recipe and I know everyone loves oreos and cheesecake!

So yummy!  I love that it doesn't have whip cream on top, I feel that it takes from the flavor anyways!  :>  Here is the link to the recipe.  I hummed and hawed over what I should send Ariel's teacher.  I decided on some fragrance body lotion that I have and made some tags for her teacher and for the EA (Education Assistant)  Here are the tags:

Out for Publication!

Yesterday I took Ariel to see Disney on Ice, Mickey and Minni's magical journey!  She loved it!  We had such a wonderful time!  Here are some photos:

I took this one of the two of us during intermission.  I love that she put her arms around me!

 I think this was my favorite part when the clamshell is opened and Ariel's sister's come out in the Little Mermaid part of the show!
 I didn't take many photos of the show (I wan to enjoy the show!) but had to take this one of course!
 Ariel wore her Ariel dress!  I figured why not dress up?
This is Ariel and her new chickie.  I wasn't too thrilled with what was for sale at the show, along with the outrageous price tags ($22 for a light up toy, once we bought one and it broke that night so never again!)  Last year we bought a necklace with an Ariel pendant and I don't know what happened to that (oh it tarnished bad!)  I told Ariel that after we would go to the store and she could pick out anything she wanted, a toy, a craft, or a book.  This is what she wanted, I would have got her a princess doll but she wanted this and was thrilled!  We had so much fun and I am so glad that we went!  I love having a little girl!
