October always seems to be a busy month. School is moving along, after school activities have started and the most coveted holiday happens at the end of the month. Halloween! Halloween has always been my favorite and I love that my girls and husband enjoy it just as much as I do. The minute pumpkins start appearing at grocery stores and farmers markets we are in full Halloween mode. I am a little slow getting the house decorated this year but it will happen soon. The girls started asking for Halloween lunches last month and I promised them I would make a Halloween lunch every Friday this month and as many as I can come up with the week of Halloween. Here is their first Halloween lunch.
Today the girls had Jack-o-Lantern and Bat PB and pumpkin butter sandwiches with fruit leather decorations, Halloween chips (so cute), yogurt with sprinkles in the pumpkin cup and Halloween marshmallows in the spider cup. They also have a Go Go Squeez.
Thankfully this time of year is filled with many opportunities for fun lunches not just Halloween ones. Yesterday the girls had this fun Fall lunch.
The girls had 2 acorn PB and pumpkin butter sandwiches, pretzels, yogurt with frozen mixed berries, and grapes with a autumn pick that I made from a toothpick and 2 stickers. The stickers didn't exactly line up but it was still cute.
The days and weeks ahead are filled with many activities and family time. I am really excited for many of our upcoming outings and time together. I hope you too have some fun times planned this month. Happy Friday!
