A short intermission...

For now, I have no plans to blog for the next week or two. We are crazy busy with preparations & family time activities with just us...that I just don't have time. Hopefully, I will be back {& not too horribly depressed} within a week, but I am buying myself a little extra time....just in case. I'm not sure what the plan is for next Monday, so MAYBE there will be a Muffin Tin Monday post. Our substitute for yesterday's Muffin Tin Monday was a trip to the toy store & dinner at Applebees. I think that the boys enjoyed it! I hope that everyone will be patient & wait for me to come back. Until then.....

Muffin Tin Monday...RED

Muffin Tin Monday almost didn't happen today. It is ONE of those days! Here is what we did for today's "red" theme.

We had heart shaped personal pizzas with the fixins for strawberry shortcake.

A little late...

I made a countdown (a few days late) for Valentine's Day. I saw the original idea on a TV show a few days ago...here is a link for step by step directions HERE.

Here is what you do:

cut your paper to a 6x6 square.

flip your paper over & place a long piece of DOUBLE stick tape on only one side.

stick the edges of the paper together to form a cylinder.

place another smaller piece of DOUBLE stick tape to the inside of one end of the cylinder. "pinch" the end closed.

fill your cylinder with treats or a cute message using the open end of your cylinder. place another small piece of tape on that end & pinch it closed in the opposite direction {like a sour cream container}.

decorate the outside with numbers, hearts, stickers...whatever you like. I decorated some clothes pins with paper & chipboard, strung it all up by some string. there you have a cute CHEAP little Valentine countdown.

Muffin Tin Monday...Dr. Seuss

I already did a Muffin Tin Monday for Dr. Seuss HERE. It was a ton of fun & the boys totally remember it {from back in May}. My oldest LOVES Dr. Seuss. He could read Dr. Seuss books or watch the movies all day. I was VERY tempted to do the EXACT same thing, but I wanted to try a few new ideas. Here is what they ate:

Starting at the top (clockwise):

Sneetches stars (cheddar cheese stars)
Oobleck (green vanilla pudding)
Pink Clover with a speck (Pink Cotton Candy on a stick with at yellow sprinkle)
Goldfish from the Cat in the Hat (Goldfish crackers)
Green Eggs & Ham
Pink Ink (Strawberry Milk)
