Saint Patrick's Day Lunches

The kids will probably be excited tomorrow when they open these lunches. Each child has two pepperoni rolls, grapes, broccoli and carrots, ranch and some new cinnamon things they wanted to try made by Cheetos. Honestly, they tasted like a stick of butter and I love butter. Yuck. I will see what the kids think though.

The BFG Lunch

I haven't blogged in forever...

But tonight a friend said she found my blog on Pinterest by surprise. It was a reminder that maybe I should do this every once in a while.

Rebecca is currently reading BFG at school. So I made a BFG lunch! She has a turkey wrap with veggie cream cheese, a cheese stick, Pirate's Booty, and grapes. I used food markers to draw the picture from the cover on her lunch.

The elf makes a popcorn mess!

Oh my! That silly elf.  He apparently brought back the Elf Story movie, but look at the mess he made.  He was sitting on the couch from the Calico Critters house that he apparently moved into the living room!  He scattered popcorn all over.
Then we went into the kitchen to make breakfast and found this mess!  Apparently my daughter says that other elves clean up their messes but ours doesn't!

An elf matryoshka?

In 2002 I traveled to Russia with a group from NCSU. I brought back this matryoshka and it sits in my living room. Well, we found Criddle beside it today. It appears he smushed himself into a plastic container of some sort and is perhaps pretending to be a matryoshka.

A Christmas Lunch

Today's Christmas lunch has apple sauce in a mini dipper, goldfish, celery with cream cheese and carrots. Rebecca is on a cream cheese and ham roll up kick so I put some pinwheels on some Christmas picks and tada!

Our Elf is having a spot of tea...

Our elf is back!

Oh, Criddle! The children will be ecstatic to see you again. They still talk about all of your antics from last year. I hope you have thought up some new ones! 

Well, welcome back! I can't wait until the kids find you sitting on the mantle.
