I’m going to be straight with you. I made another turkey lunch. And I’ll be doing the same tomorrow. And then that’s it. On Friday, Bigs’ class will be having a sweet, little Thanksgiving feast, and THAT’S the only reason I won’t be making a turkey lunch.
I made a PB&J turkey-shaped lunch, and added some details to the face, feet, and feathers. He’s sort of rasta looking this time. I dig it. He’s sitting upon a crusty hay bale and although it looks like he’s pooping out a Reece’s PB cup, he isn’t. Or maybe he is. My Bigs would think that’s hilarious. I also packed seasoned corn, fruit salad (red and green grapes, and pineapple), and a squeezy organic yogurt.
Here’s to a day where poop is replaced by Reece’s PB cups.
Books. Real live books. The crisp pages. The smell. The rows and rows of newly stacked adventures, waiting to be read. I love books! I am SO thankful that has passed down to my boys. They love books too. We love checking books out at the library and buying books too. This week, at my boys’ school, the Scholastic Book Fair is in town. That was my FAVORITE week growing up. I still have all my old books. Such treasures. I bought the boys some books for Christmas (while they weren’t looking) and we let them each pick out a book tonight. Bigs picked a book called, Creepy Carrots and Smalls picked out a book about a school bus (about which he’s obsessed). Such fun!
Here are their lunches for tomorrow – Smalls:
I packed a PB&J, cut into four squares. He’s also got some animal crackers, golden raisins, and a banana. I’d been packing him grapes for weeks now, just to open his lunchbox at the end of the day to find them still there. #Imslow #nomoregrapes
For my Bigs:
Bigs also has a PB&J, cut into four squares. I also packed pretzels, green grapes, an organic yogurt squeezy thing, and a Halloween cookie.
Blessings to you!
