Finally a Craft!

It seems like ages since we've done a craft! I am glad to KINDA be back in the swing of things! And I know Lu was super excited, she loves to sit down and paint!
I saw something SIMILAR on Frugal Family Fun Blog they used a oatmeal canister, I wanted something on a smaller scale, so I used a toilet paper roll, and cut it in half. Same concept though. Lu painted away, she wanted me to round up all the toilet paper rolls and keep making flowers for her LOL! After they were dry, I put yellow tissue paper in the middle and used a pipe cleaner for the stem!! Nice and SPRINGY! So glad its finally spring!
Closer look at her masterpiece! I think they turned out darling! Linked up to We Made It! Showcase Friday

Kids In The Kitchen - Big Helper

Today's Kids in The Kitchen post was switched at the last minute. I had something new and interesting for you all ... but my little Lu asked if she could help me make her lunch for school today, since this was her first time attempting a sandwhich, I had to post it =) proud mom!
She choose pb&j and if you look closely at the jelly picture, her face is more of an adjitated look rather than a smile she said "Mom my Jelly is not spreading, it always spreads for you ... can you show me your tricks?" LoL how I love her! And the she wanted to cut watermelon into chunks, she would eat watermelon all day long if I let her! Paired with cookies, yogart, and water she was all set! And Next week I will post what I was going to this week! I sometimes think you don't have to be all fancy and elaborate just to help good ole' mom in the kitchen =)

Muffin Tin Monday Green

MTM is green today! As usual we did an afternoon snack
Lu picked all her goodies which were green apples, green yogart with green sprinkles, and although I didn't think apples yogart and pickles go together she insisted she wanted pickles and so she got them!

She's being a little sassy today LOL =) thats my little Lu for you! Happy Monday Ya'll!

Kids In The Kitchen- Chocolate Covered Banana's

Yes we have started attacking fruit with chocolate ... what can I say? I've been craving fruit. But I am not a big fan of banana's Lu on the other hand is, so this one was for her! An after school snack of sorts =) I really think I want to try tangerines dipped in chocolate, I have seen that somewhere before ... mmm my mouth is watering!
I cut one banana in half, inserted a popcicle stick, and stuck them in the freezer for one hour. Melted chocolate and Lu dipped and rolled in sprinkles .. then she started dipping her fingers in the chocolate and rolling them in sprinkles as well, silly girl! Looks pretty tasty! Very easy and gives her something to look forward to after school today!

A Night to Remember ...

Last week I took my baby girl to her first concert ever.
for none other than Taylor Swift, this is Lu's favorite singer/artist, my little Lu will listen to music all day if you let her.
The moment/memories were priceless, I will never forget it! We were super close too I got some great pictures! And she even touched Lu's hand, which made Lu like her so much more!
I went with 2 of my girlfriends and their daughters which happen to be good friends with Lu!
We had a great time! Can't wait to experience something like it again!!!!
Hope over to Seven Clown Circus for Wordless Wednesdays Pictures!

Kids in the Kitchen - Strawberries

Here in Central Florida *where we live* once it hits March it is officially strawberry season. Infact the Strawberry festival is in March ... that is one of my favorite times of the year. I always say I go to look at the crafts and let Lu ride the rides, but really I think I go for the ever popular yummy fresh strawberry shortcake, and of course the ripe delishous flats of Strawberries, and it is so worth the drive for those kinds of Strawberries =)
So today we did something simple, something I recently saw in an issue of Family Fun Magazine
We simply made white chocolate dipped strawberries with sprinkles!
First Lu rinsed them *one by one I might add* then patted them dry.
She dipped them in the already melted chocolate and sprinkled them with red sprinkles.
Not the prettiest picture here but you get it, they were yummy goodness! We love strawberries in this house! I think we might attack some grapes next with chocolate :)!
What kinds of food fairs and festivals do you all have in your states that you love going too??

A Little Fabric and ALOT of hot glue ...

Warning: Sorry About The Horrible Pictures!!!
Remember these ugly plastic braclets that were in a Happy Meal of a fast food resturant?? Yes those! We have so many floating around ... why I don't know, we don't even go there often. However they are still here, and I have seen this on a blog or 2 before *I forgot which ones* And I decided to dress them up a bit ...
With a little fabric and alot of hot glue ... they look much cuter!
And they dress up any ordinary tea party .. don't you think? Very simple, and just a few mins to re-do! I might have to raid Lu's jewlry box and decorate them in my style! =)
