Love Snack Baby

My kids LOVE fruit. 
So I thought I would make up a sweet fruity snack.
Bananas & Strawberries
I used an extra fat straw
from a Panara smoothie
but I would just ask them for one if you don't want to buy a smoothie:)

I held the end in the heart shape I wanted
& then just put some tape around it to hold it.

Even Batman LOVED them & kept asking me for more.

My neice wasn't falling for it though. 
She just liked to look at them :)

Mother's Day

A little fist of posies
 in a homemade coffee mug.

The sweetest little poem,

a little kiss,

a great big hug.
There's no better way
to show a Mama love.

How did you celebrate Mother's Day?

Let me know if you posted about it too.
I love a good read about
loving up a mom.

A friend of mine is up nominated for FORD's best Mommy blog.
Do you have time to vote?
It's kinda a big deal :)

Butterfly Jar

What's in your jar baby?

Oooo...a butterfly!

Pretty cool since it is not even real.

But it sure acts like it is alive!

My mom gave us girls a butterfly jar
for our families for Easter.

The butterflys flutter all around when you just tap the top.
The kids play with it for hours.

You REALY REALLY might want to pick one up.
But hurry & grab yours before it is gone!

Happy May Day!

Here in the USA we like to give May baskets on May first. 
You just hang a little basket of treats on your neighbors doorknob,
ring the bell, & RUN!!!
It seems like yesterday I did my May Day Post from last year!

But here it is the first of May.

This is the first year that Bo joined in on it.

He was so cute with his little basket in his hand.
His excitment was contagious!

Annie acted like the old pro,
"I'll take Bo, Mom.  I'll show him what to do."

Sounded good to me, I am getting a bit old for ringing the doorbell, running & hiding in the bushes.

They had LOTS of fun & only got caught once :) 
Happy May Day!

Do you do May baskets?
