Say Cheese

So I always knew in my heart I was supposed to be a mom. Last week was a little trying with John Hunter being sick, and there were times I thought... oh my gosh what am I doing.

John Hunter was all better today and so I took him to Mom's Day Out while I worked for a couple of hours. He will go tomorrow as well, but not on Wednesday. So since he isn't going on Halloween I thought I would bring in a pumpkin treak for all his friends. So I asked Miss Jill what we could bring in. She said that we could pretty much do anything we wanted... but all the kids like cheese and crackers and it is pretty healthy... so I said deal.
Now most people would just bring in good old cheese cubes with crackers. But not me. When I told my dad what I was doing he just rolled his eyes. With all honesty I looked at him and said... it is your mom's fault I am this way. My Gran was so creative, as a teacher, mom, and grandmother, and I have always wanted to be like her.

So for the past 20 min. I have been cutting pumpkins out of slices of cheese that the Kroger's deli cut for me. I have to say... the pumpkin cheese is pretty cute, and although the 12 1-year olds will not even know it is a pumpkin... I do and that is all that matters.

I mean can I just say I cannot wait to be president of the PTA!

Love the cheese idea!! Very cute. Josie's room is in chocolate brown and pink, wish I knew that you knew a seamstress that could use fabric and make bedding before I ordered it! Do you come to Shelbyville often to go there??
