Bento Does It

So if you've seen my other blog, you may have learned about my new way of making lunch for Ethan.

I learned about it from, one of my favorite blogs.

The style is called bento, and it's a Japanese way of packing lunches to eliminate garbage.'s cute!! :)

The very first bento I ever did! It's got grapes with a fruit leather airplane, rolled turkey slice, carrot 'coins' with another fruit leather airplane, and tiny cookies. The other side has pasta with ranch and cheese airplanes and diamonds. :)

Second bento!! :) I am so pleased with how the apple turned out...the first time I'd ever made the checkerboard apple! There are mixed veggies, dinosaur shaped pb&j, and animal crackers.

This one is not quite as cute...I was going for a 'make-your-own-Lunchable' type deal...cheese triangles, turkey squares, green beans, and pineapple on sword picks with sprinkles. Then there's Ritz crackers, pickle circles on sword picks, and tiny cookies.

I liked this one! :) Goldfish, salami on sword picks, and a pickle. Then Toy Story 3 mac n cheese (boy am I glad Ethan doesn't mind some leftovers in his lunch! LOL!) and his name cut out of fruit leather.

My favorite one so far!! I was going for a theme on this one...ABCs and 123s! We have O shaped cookies, Scrabble Jr. Cheez-Its, celery bites (they looked like Cs to me!), and salami letters and numbers. The other side has ABCs and 123s Spaghettio's and ABC and 124 cheese. :)

It's helped me pack healthier lunches for Ethan, and it's sort of a hobby now. HA! It's addicting. :)

A Bit of Random

Little Miss, sucking her thumb, smiling at the same time, and wearing what apparently used to be one of my doll's outfits. :)

What was left after Roo ate his doughnut.

Poor Ethan had an ear infection. He slept on the couch for a lot of that Saturday...and this is how his eyes were when I checked on him once. Creepy?!

For some reason sometimes to be silly Ethan calls his bum his 'boohind'. I guess Isaac picked up on that because last night when they were in the shower, he was saying 'boohind'. Then today he was playing with the Leapfrog magnetic puzzle barn thinger...looks like this:

He picked up the purple cow bootie and was singing to himself 'boohind, boohind'. I almost died laughing while I was making pizza. :)

Everything is a Toy
