Cookie Cutter as: Sandwich Shaper

Since I’ve not had time to bake anymore I just went with another sandwich, but really that’s fine because my daughter LOVES them in shapes. Today I present: un petit bonHAM de neige!

What a cutie! He’s made with doughy French bread, ham, cheddar and mayo, and decorated with edible food markers. E liked him so much (and she’s been eating a lot lately!) she asked to me to make her another one, so he is joined by his girlfriend today. Her lunches are mostly packed in a Goodbyn that she decorated herself. Love this lunchbox!

Well, that concludes National Cookie Cutter week, but I still have the cookie tree to post. I’ll have to get to it later. I didn’t have time to get it together before J’s party on Sunday so the cookies are in the freezer and the icing is in the fridge ready for the next get together.

Cookie Cutter as: Sandwich Shaper

Day 2 of National Cookie Cutter Week brings us my 5 year old’s lunch: PB&J boy!

Using delicious Trader Joe’s peanut butter and some Crofter’s Strawberry jam. I was going to pack it in her Theodore Tugboat lunchbag but ended up tucking him into a bento box with the rest of her lunch. Thankfully, J drove her to school because, unbelievably, THE BOY IS STILL SLEEPING!

Yes, my friends, it is 9am and he has been sleeping since about 10pm. THAT’S 11 HOURS!

Let’s not get our hopes up too much about nights to come. The night before last he was up most of it with a stuffy nose and sore throat. On the other hand, the doc says he’s doing great. He’s a little 6 months, at just under 13 pounds, but since starting solids (mostly avocados) he put on a pound in 2 weeks! The month before that he only gained a pound,  so he’s twice as fast since the solids. We call him Fatso sometimes:

Super hilarious to us because we do not have fat kids. We don’t even had chubby kids, nor slightly round. Neither are they plumb or cherubic. In fact, lil C seems to be in a holding pattern just under 30 lbs at 3 1/2. Here she is in her fashionable glory at Anthropologie (love the new one in Vancouver!):

And E’s pretty much a ballerina without the training. Oh wait. She’s wearing a snow suit here so you can’t really see it. Oh well!
