So one thing we have started this year is...
celebrating each and every holiday no matter how small

with FOOD!!!
One of my favorites was Valentines Day. Emily and I had a mystery dinner for the fam. It was soo much fun. Each food item or utensil had a code name like "puppy love" which is crush soda or "Cold Shoulder" was ice cream. Each person ordered 3 items so some got a fork with spagetti sauce and icecream. It was so funny, kids really got a kick out of it! We also had so much fun with St. Patricks Day. Kids woke up to find the Leprechan had hidden all of their green clothes for school and they had to go on a scavenger hunt to find them and the pot of gold :) That night we had a fun dinner with Emily and her kiddos Wearing Green!!!!

And then of course April Fools day. I tricked the kids and made little meatloaf muffins and put mashed potatoes on top that looked like icing and then the dessert looked like chicken nuggets ketchup, peas and carrots and mashed potatoes, when really it was cheesecake nuggets rolled in graham crackers with strawberry sauce as the ketchup and ice cream with carmel sauce that looked like mashed potatoes with gravey. I also set the table underneath the table. The kids thought it was pretty funny especially when they thought they were getting dessert first.
