40 poinsettias ✅! I’m so excited to get this project going for the 10th year in a row. This year I’ve added a NEW TWIST for my students that will bring cheer to many more people.
We begin by talking about how it’s better to give than to receive during the holidays. My kids will write a letter to someone in the school who has helped them. They will deliver the poinsettia and card to them. (BTW I have FREE Christmas/ holiday cards in my store you can download!) I love seeing the reactions of the kids and the adults who receive the gifts.
Then they will write a letter to a resident in a local nursing home.
We plan to line the walkway in front of the nursing home with 20 of the poinsettias and cards. We have one close to our school that I believe we will be able to walk across the street to. ☺️I feel like our nursing home residents have taken the biggest hit in 2020 and hope this brings a smile to them again and again this season.
I apologize for not reminding you of this idea earlier but I noticed there weren’t any $1 poinsettias in the Home Depot Black Friday ad so I was worried we wouldn’t be able to pull this off.
I’ve been told that they had the big ones for $1.98 but I actually found these @loweshomeimprovement for 88 cents each today. They are smaller but just as beautiful.😍There were lots left if you can still snag them.
I am beyond thrilled that this tradition has been implemented in so many schools across the country after the first time I shared this and @teacherspayteachers shared the post.
Please let me know if you’ve done this with your students or plan to this year! ... See MoreSee Less

Thought it would be fun to share our baby boy’s name story with you! This name has been picked out for over 10 years.
I remember sitting in the driveway with Dustin when we were dating and he told me if he ever had a son, he would name him Tyler after his best friend who is still a big part of our lives.
I thought it was sweet that he was so certain about that and so I always agreed that we would name our son Tyler.
We didn’t find out Aniston’s gender until birth. (BTW I highly recommend doing it this way!) So we had picked out Aniston Kay for a girl or Tyler Harris for a boy. I even went to the hospital with A and T outfits ready for either.
Harris was my maternal grandparents last name. They were missionaries in Africa for 8 years and my favorite people to ever walk this earth. I loved honoring them both this way.
Of course, we were blessed with Aniston Kay. We again planned to use Tyler Harris but were blessed with a Heidi Elizabeth instead. (She was named after my sister and best friend.)
We thought we were a two kid family and I thought I was definitely a girl mom so I was definitely shocked but beyond excited that our little Tyler Harris will finally be part of our family! I actually still have those T outfits! I’m 30 weeks now and can’t wait to meet him soon! ... See MoreSee Less
