Hello and welcome to another munchkin meals! Hailey’s eats have been a lot of the same lately. I share a lot of what she eats on instagram and facebook if you’re interested. Somehow in between mental breakdowns (thanks for all the love on my last post- so glad I’m not alone!), I found some time to play in the kitchen.
Next time I’ll share Hailey’s meals and snacks, but this time I couldn’t help but to get in the spirit with these fun kid-friendly party snacks!
Cheesy Reindeer- Laughing Cow white cheddar cheese wedges. The antlers are made tiny twist pretzels that I broke apart. The nose is half a green olive and the eyes are peppercorns. (The Laughing Cow provided me with the cheese wedges and a $10 dollar gift card for this review)
Rudolph Water Bottles- I’m seriously not a craft person, but these were so easy! I used a hot glue gun to glue googly eyes and a red fuzzy ball to the mini water bottles. Then I cut pipe cleaners to twist and create antlers.
Candy Cane Pizzas- I used my whole wheat dough to bake candy cane shaped pizzas. Then I topped with pizza sauce and sprinkled cheese in a candy cane pattern, then baked until done. You could always use pepperoni, tomato slices or red peppers to create the stripes on an all-cheese candy cane pizza too!
Banana Snowmen- This is a great one to get the kids involved with! Slice bananas (slice them thick so they don’t break apart when you kabob them!). Use chocolate chips for the eyes and a tiny real carrot slice for the hose. Two pretzels make arms and the festive hat is made from an apply slice and a blueberry. Hailey thought these were hilarious!
Popcorn Snowmen- Again with my handy dandy glue gun! More googly eyes make these popcorn cups fun and silly. The noses are made from orange construction paper, then I used a bit of red ribbon to make a scarf. Fill it up with popcorn for a healthy, festive party snack!
I’m sure people are busy during this time of the year, but if you’ve posted about what your kids are eating, please link it up!
This pregnancy is different from how I remember last time being. There are physical differences: belly getting bigger more quickly, skin breaking out, more nausea etc, but I really feel the emotional side has been much more intense than last time. I find myself able to cry at the drop of a hat, then I […]
Thanksgiving ‘break’ was really wonderful. We squeezed in seeing so much family and really enjoyed being with everyone. Hailey had a ball with all her cousins, both younger and older, and it has me so excited to raise sisters (thank you for all the congrats)! The family was the highlight of the holiday… …but then […]
We enjoyed finding out that Hailey was a girl together on a special date night so much that we decided to do the same this time with baby numero dos. So last Saturday we left Hailey with good friends and ventured down to South Park, a ritzy, decorative area of Charlotte known for it’s high-end […]
I’ve been in a whirlwind of family, food and football since Wednesday and can say I’ve really been enjoying every minute of it! Now that we’ve gotten the chance to share with all our family, I look forward to getting to share more about the new baby with you all tomorrow! Today though, I have […]
I hope all my US friends had a great Thanksgiving! Whether you’re out storming the crowds in search of great deals, still hanging out with the family or finishing up a work week, I hope everyone all over is having a fabulous Friday. I’m still soaking up family time so today I’m using this outlet […]
For the love that I found. For the family we’ve made. For videos and pictures That help memories not to fade. For all of my family by both blood and marriage. For my sweet husband and daughter And a new baby… in a carriage (???). For friends that support me and selflessly lend a helping […]
Hey, did you hear? Thanksgiving is tomorrow! I know. In the words of Phoebe Buffet, THIS IS BRAND NEW INFORMATION. Despite my knowledge of when holidays fall, I often find myself putting together food for such events on last minute notice. If you’re like me and still haven’t finalized your Thanksgiving menu, here’s a crowd-pleasing […]
Ah, another fashion post from your go-to style guru, moi! I kid, of course, I just always feel the need to poke fun at myself so you know I’m not serious about trying to discuss fashion. For one, I don’t have the poses down and for another, I really cringe at my selfies most of […]
We had quite the weekend! Some hiking, some decorating, some envelope opening (much more on that later after we share the news with our families on Thanksgiving!)… it’s enough to wear ya out. Sunday was cold, in the 30’s all day. In the afternoon, everyone crashed, so I took advantage of the peace and quiet […]
