Astronaut at Publix

Next, we went to Publix (grocery store) for their event.

T enjoyed playing the games they had set up:

   Toss the spiders into the jack-o'-lantern...

   Toss the rings onto the 2-liter soda bottles...

   Choose a fish...and hope it has an "X" on the underside....

He also had fun collecting candy...

and ended up with quite a stash!  ;o)

Halloween Gift

My sister and niece surprised us by stopping by this afternoon with a Halloween gift for T.

My niece had made chocolate chip cookies and Jack-o'-lantern sugar cookies and had packaged them (along with a KitKat candy bar!) in a Halloween cello bag.

She also gave T a Snoopy window cling...which he promptly placed on the window by our kitchen table.  :)

T likes his gifts...

and he loves his cousin!  :)

Yesterday was our last day at Disney World.

I didn't want the *Magic* to end!

This morning, we packed up and headed for home.  It was a good trip...until we had a flat tire on our rental vehicle about an hour from our destination.

We ended up arriving home three hours later than we anticipated...which made for a very long trip.  It all worked out, though.  :)

This morning, my parents-in-law, my husband, T, and I headed toward the most magical place this side of the Mississippi -- Disney World!  :D

We are staying for a week in my parents' timeshare in Kissimmee, Florida...located five minutes from Disney World.  It doesn't get any better than that, does it??!  :)

Black is the Color

This week at Bento Blog Network, the challenge is to create a meal based on a color. Since T's favorite color changes often (sometimes on a daily basis!), I decided to go with black.

  • black spider mini Oreo cookie with black licorice legs and orange sprinkles eyes; three additional cookies underneath
  • mini cupcake with black icing and black spider icing decoration
  • celery sticks in black cauldron with Parmesan peppercorn dressing on side
  • pitted black olives on sword picks
  • "black" bat-shaped peanut butter and jelly sandwiches with black sprinkles eyes
  • crunchy Cheetos
  • fruit punch Juicy Juice with eyes attached to glass

T looked at his lunch and said, "Cool!"  ~That was fun!

Fall Tree

This is a fall-themed meal that T enjoyed today.

  • tree trunk = pretzel rods
  • tree branches = pretzel sticks
  • leaves = leaf-shaped peanut butter and orange marmalade sandwiches
  • maple leaf = Dare (brand) Maple Leaf Creme Cookie
  • applesauce with fall leaves sprinkles
  • milk in yellow cup with fall leaf stickers

T went for the cookie first.  :)

I'm not sure why he felt the need to stack up his sandwiches after eating his cookie? :)
