I think this was a mix between a scarecrow and the headless horseman lol
Either way Lyss loved it this morning when she snuck a peek at her lunch and that’s all that matters 😊
Head = Babybel cheese wheel
Body = imitation crab meat
Torch = carrot & cherry tomato
Firey background = radishes
Vampire teeth = apple & almond slices teeth
Topped with a witchy chocolate coin
This lunch consisted of a salami sandwich cut into a spider web
I drew the lines with a Wilton edible black pen
The spider web hangs over a pumpkin patch
Greenery is compliments of delicious broccoli
Key Lime pie yogurt topped with a white chocolate skull
Then we have a Witch’s Cauldron filled with Green Grapes
Ok I finally did it!
I have made the coolest lunch Alyssa has gotten yet 😄
This spook-tacular lunch consists of:
Tombstone = Ham & cheese sandwich
RIP = Candy lettering
Foliage = Broccoli
Fence = Carrots held together with kabob sticks
(pointy ends cut off)
Ghost = Peep
Jack-O-Lantern = Cutie with the face drawn on with a black sharpie
Sour cream & onion Pringles (Lyssa’s favorite)
Topped with a gummy tombstone
Lyssa has enjoyed the hot air balloon festival every year since she was an infant whether it is the sunrise launch or the night glow. This year her BFF was able to come with us for this spectacular event. Arie & Alyssa were such good girls getting up in the morning especially considering they couldn’t fall asleep before midnight due to the excitement (even though we tucked them into bed at 8:30pm lol).
We made the girls hot coco to drink on the ride up to Springs and bundled them up then the look on their faces when they saw the balloons filling up all around us was so cute! They kept pointing to the balloons and picking out their favorite ones. Totally adorable 😄
it doesn’t matter how many beautiful photos hubby has taken or videos he has edited I still love seeing his work. However I am especially thrilled by his most recent photo shoot…mainly because it was of our family including my parents!
We decided to take an earlier morning trip up to San Isabel for some family pictures so we grabbed our coffee and hit the road super early since it takes just shy of an hour to get there.
When we arrived the view was breathtaking, the rising sun was reflecting off the lake and the leafs were a sea of red, orange and yellow with a hint of remaining green. I wished we could have stayed up in the mountains ALL day! 😊
Here are my favorite pics:
Lastly the love of my life & I got this pic before we completely lost the good lighting.
So I just love how some people chastise and belittle other parents for going above and beyond for their children.
It wasn’t understood why some parents go through the wasted effort of making fun & healthy lunches…I mean come on shouldn’t EVERY kid be eating hot lunch instead of taking a special lunch from their parent?!
This post from one of my favorite bloggers (lunchboxdad) is the perfect response to those people who criticize other parents for making special lunches for their kiddo(s).
Thank you Beau for standing up for yourself and all of us other parents who lose some extra sleep to make fun lunches and make our children’s day a little extra special!!!
