Muffin Tin Monday

Monday's theme was The Giving Tree.Well I stole this idea from my friend Heidi... It is called Muffin Tin Monday and you read a book and that is the theme and then you put their lunch in a muffin tin. I thought it was a great idea. Since I haven't been working I really wanted to do a lot of fun things with Brooklynn but with trying to get ready for the baby, I haven't done as much as I wanted.
So this week we are starting Muffin Tin Monday, Work of Art Wednesday and Feature Film Friday. I think Brooklynn will love it and it will make sure I take time out and spend these special days with her. Also usually every Thursday we go to Pajama Story Time at Barnes and Noble and that is fun too.
In this picture Brooklynn told me that the brocoli looks like a tree. Brooklynn thought it was a very special meal and time with mom. It really made her eat almost all her lunch also. She loved it and I can't wait for next week.

Today we did Work of Art Wednesday and Brooklynn got to glue everything together and color it. She really loved it.She loves art projects.
Don't you love this picture with her feet up, tongue sticking out. She is quite the little artist, she consenrates so hard on her work.
Here is the finished product.
