Hi everyone! If you tuned in for yesterday's post, then you know my family and I were hoping for a winter wonderland outside when we awoke this morning. Well, no snow filled winter wonderland, but we did receive a fair amount of ice...not really garnering the same amount of excitement from the kids as the white fluffy stuff. However, the schools are closed today, so they were quite happy about that. Thankfully, the ice was not heavy enough to cause any damage to power lines or trees, so we still have electricity. So, we may not be able to build a snowman outside, but we can all have a big cup of hot cocoa with marshmallows and whipped cream inside. Oh yeah!!!
Since Z was disappointed that we could not go outside and build a snowman, I decided to make him a snowman for lunch. I know, I know.....definitely not the same thing. But, as parents, sometimes we just have to improvise, don't we? I had this cute snowman scrapbook paper and thought it was a really fun backdrop for a snowman lunch.
This is such a simple lunch to do.....no special cutting tools needed.
In this lunch:
*jumbo orange silicone cup with homemade tuna casserole- This is the sun for our happy snow family.
*blue "clouds" with blueberries and 3 blue organic fruit snacks
*sweet peas and Applegate hotdog with black olive "buttons" for the snowman body
*mini marshmallows for some added snow
