Fruit christmas tree

Today was Princess E's Christmas party at playgroup. I was feeling a little bit creative and made a fruit Christmas tree!
It very popular with both the children and the adults!
You start with an apple as the base and a carrot as the trunk then use half toothpicks to hold the fruit on the tree. I cut up the left over fruit and put it at the base of the tree. It was so popular that even the apple and carrot were eaten'

Care Bears

Last week Princess E got a Care Bear DVD and all I have heard since is "me watch bears!" So we have watched it over and over and over again. But Care Bears are very cute and Princess E has also inherited my Birthday Care Bear from the 80's. So every time we watch Care Bears Princess E makes Birthday Care Bear watch it to. So this week Princess E is having a Care Bear lunch.
Bear Sandwiches, teddy bear biscuits, rainbow and cloud, strawberry hearts, star watermelon

Toot Toot!

On Saturday we enjoyed an early mothers day trip to have a ride on a steam train. We made it a family day with Princess E's Nanna, Gran-nan, Poppa, Aunty, Uncle, Cousins and some close family friends as well as Mummy and Daddy.
We enjoyed a train ride then went to the park for a "Nic Nic" (Picnic) where we collected acorns and played in the leaves. After our lunch we went for a walk around the small town of Sheffield and looked at the murals. And we couldn't resist stopping in at the lolly shop! This week Princess E is having some train sandwiches driven by a happy teddy bear biscuit on a railway of chocolate wafer biscuits and marshmallow steam.

First Dental Appointment

Today was Princess E's first dentist appointment! We are lucky enough to know our dentist really well but it didn't help with getting Princess E to show the dentist her teeth. So after a ride in the chair and lots of crying she got some stickers and did a drawing while mummy talked to the dentist and the dental assistant. So today we thought we should have a toothy kinda lunch :)

Apple mouth, molar marshmallows, tooth fairy wands and a tooth

I did learn a few lessons when making the ice cream cone cakes one being don't over fill them! Otherwise you have a big mess to clean up. But it was fun making them and I am sure the children will have fun eating them!!!

The Fairies have moved in

A couple of weeks ago I entered Princess E in to a competition to win a Lil Fairy Door and she was lucky enough to win! So her rainbow fairy door arrived and was put on her wall in the trunk of Russell's (the monkey) tree.

And the fairies also left a fairy lunch for Princess E to take to day care.
