Happy Birthday, Mrs. Morris!

November 6 is Mrs. Morris' 30th birthday! She is a great friend and blogging buddy in Victoria, Australia. We wanted to wish her the very best on her special day!  
(Because of the time zones, it is only November 5 here in America, but it is already Sunday in Australia! Funny!)

Here is a little birthday song for you, Mrs. Morris!

 We are special friends with 2KM and 2KJ!

In September, Jarrod (from 2KM) sent us a lovely surprise package all the way from Down Under! 

We sent 2KM and 2KJ a parcel too. They loved the package and wrote a blog post about it. Here is a link to read about it and see the pictures!

On the 2KM and 2KJ class blog, Miss Jordan has put up a wonderful VoiceThread for Mrs. Morris! Head on over and leave her a birthday wish! 


  1. Dear Mrs Yollis and class,

    I just love this post and what a beautiful birthday present for Mrs Morris. Just perfect!
    I just love birthdays only not mine. I do seem to remember another special birhtday Mrs Yollis. :)

    It really is just amazing just what can come out of blogging. Learning and the wonderuful friendships which are formed which last for many years.
    Blogging really does bring the world to your doorstep.

    You all did an outstanding job singing too.

    Miss Jordan did a wonderful post about Mrs Morris birthday as well

    From your friend,

  2. Dear Mrs Yollis and class,

    Wow, what a great surprise! Thank you so much for your fabulous birthday wishes.

    It means a lot to call you all my friends and I feel very lucky to know you all!

    I am having a wonderful birthday. On Friday I got to celebrate it with my students, on Saturday I had a dinner party with friends and today (Sunday) I will be spending the day with my husband and family!

    My friends and family spoiled me with some beautiful gifts.

    I hope you're all having an excellent weekend.

    Your friend in Australia,

    Mrs M☀rris
