Last week we had our first snow day of the year. Yes. SNOW. We declared it a pajama day and the girls were playing so nicely together – they didn’t realized I took this shot of them in the living room from my office – that I decided a fun Halloween themed lunch was in order. I love to surprise them with things like this when we have extra time on our hands. A snow day provided just that.
First up? Pizza. Not just ordinary triangle sliced pieces of pizza though, our pizza was much more spooky!
Cut into thin rectangular strips – think breadstick size and shape – we had pizza bones for lunch! Give that their father is a physician, lunch conversation quickly turned to what bones they were eating. ”I’m eating a leg bone!” ”Oooh, this elbow bone is delicious!”
It sounds so appetizing doesn’t it? Perfect for a three and five year old.
Pizza bones are fun and all, but I had something else up my sleeve. Now normally, candy of any kind for my children is a treat so what I had in mind was beyond over the top and sure to please.
