Tornadoes, flooding, giving thanks, Elephants, and Pigs. That pretty much sums up the last two weeks where we live here in Oklahoma! Almost every night we have been watching the weather to stay aware and safe. Tornadoes and floods have hit many areas of our state, and even the Oklahoma City metro area. However, our area of the city has been spared so far, so we have much to be thankful for. However, when we found out that Mo Willems, one of our family's favorite authors, had deemed May to be Thank-O-Rama month, we found it to be perfect timing to think about how blessed we are!

We have definitely grown to love books by Mo Willems' in our house. Whenever we see a new release by him, or something special happening, we always make sure we check it out. Last week we not only found out about Thank-O-Rama month, and the tour that Mo Willems is on, but we found out about the new book in his Elephant & Piggie Like Reading! series. It is Harold & Hog Pretend For Real, by author/illustrator Dan Santat, and it is such a good read.

Vans Shoes Skateboard Food Art Lunch

Sunday, May 12, 2019

I don't know if I've ever made a shoe food art lunch for my kids before, but I thought if I was going to start somewhere, it would have to be with a Vans lunch based on their iconic checkerboard skate shoes. This lunch is complete with the shoe sandwich, cheese logo, waffle pattern pretzels as a nod to the sole of the shoes, skateboard, and colorful skateboard cereal wheels.

Vans are some of our favorite shoes of all-time and I personally love the black and white checkerboard slip-ons! Every member of my family owns at least one pair of Vans and most of us have had this pair right here. I wore out my last pair after a few years and recently bought another pair exactly like it. The photo below links to a blog post where I wrote about the 80's and included our family's matching checkerboard Vans!

Breakfast for dinner is always an option in our house. No really, it might be suggested almost every single night. The great thing with the weather warming up is that my family can have our breakfast for dinner, but cook and eat the entire meal in our backyard! The below four muffin tin egg recipes can easily be cooked on your barbecue and they don't take much time, either. Plus eating dinner out back gets the kids outside and reduces the mess as well. Not that my kids ever make a mess at dinner. Nope. Never.

Three Top Avengers Lunch Recipe Ideas!

Sunday, May 5, 2019

Avengers Endgame

Well, we finally saw Avengers: Endgame this weekend and it was definitely worth the wait. Somehow we also escaped without hearing spoilers beforehand, which might have been a miracle in and of itself. Regardless, I had to make my kids an Avengers lunch since this might be the last movie with all of the original team in it.

Who are your kids' favorite Avengers? For awhile my oldest son's was Captain America, but he kind of goes back and forth. My daughter loves Black Widow. My youngest's is probably Thor but it also could be Black Panther. I hope my kids enjoy their Avengers lunch to finish off the school year. If your kids are fans, here are three Avengers recipe ideas that I put in my kids' lunch!
