It’s School Spirit Week – Wed., Thurs., and Friday

Hello everybody!

I hope you guys are well.

Today is the last day of my daughter’s school spirit week.  Here’s what we did:


Wednesday was Crazy Hat Day

 My daughter, Olivia, wore her Perry the Platypus hat from the Disney cartoon Phineas and Ferb.  It’s not exactly a crazy hat, but it does have great personality and Olivia loves this hat.


Thursday was Decade Day

I decided that the decade of peace and love was the way to go so my husband bought a plain tee and a tie dye bandana for Olivia.


I took the bandana and scanned it on my printer so I could have the same image to iron on my daughter’s T-shirt with transfer paper.

It came out great!  I told my daughter to say, “peace and love,” but she got all shy on me and didn’t want to say it.  Oh well, she still looked so darn cute!

And last but not least…


…Today (Friday) is Jersey Day

Students were asked to wear a jersey or shirt of their favorite team.  The Mercado household are big NY GIANTS fans so off she went with her T-shirt and I picked up her hair using red, white, and blue ponytail holders.  Let’s go Giants, when the season starts again, of course!

It was fun putting together and participating in her school’s activities.  I can’t wait for next year!

Take good care all.

Until next time…

It’s School Spirit Week: Monday and Tuesday

Hello everybody!

I hope you guys are well.

It’s Spirit Week at my daughter’s school and yesterday was rainbow day.  All of the Kindergarten classes were asked to wear RED.  Today was Disney day.  I wanted my daughter to participate so last week we took inventory of what we already had before venturing out and finding the stuff that we needed.  Among her clothing, we only found a red tutu.  A trip to Target was a bust, but my husband saved the day by suggesting we go to the craft store.  At AC Moore we got three T-shirts (1 red and 2 white) and a tie dye happy face bandana (for Decade day on Thursday, more on that later on). 🙂


My daughter Olivia wore a red shirt, tutu, headband, and pony tail holders on her braids.


Today was Disney day.  My daughter does own several Disney princess shirts, but I asked her if she wanted me to make her one with all of the princesses together.  She said, “Whaaaat?”  I explained, she understood, and the excitement started building up.  I searched for a picture of each princess on Google, save and pasted along with their names on Word, and printed it out on iron on transfer paper.


The shirt was a HIT and at school the kids were given a huge surprise…


…in the form of people dressed up as Mickey and Minnie Mouse.

I was able to take a quick pic of Olivia and Minnie.

Afterwards, Olivia said, “It was a great day!”  Indeed it was. 🙂

Take good care all.

Until next time…
