snack bar

To make snack time a little extra special, we sometimes put out a snack bar with different crunchy options.  It’s also a great addition to play dates and get-togethers.  For this time of the year, a snack bar is perfect to set up on the kids’ table at holiday meals or for watching one of the many Christmas movies on TV this month!

Thanks to Munchkin for sending us these versatile, colorful bowls.

blocks and cheerios

Most of the time, Cheerios end up in my children's mouths or on the floor.  Occasionally, they work themselves into building with blocks.  They provide finishing touches to a roof or an abundance of them can serve as an imaginary pond or moat.  And of course, they are always a welcome snack in between constructing and building.  Stack, munch, stack, munch, stack, munch.

This particular morning, Avery wanted to wear one of her Lily shirts (thanks Lately Lily, for sending them!) and later, wings.  Love how Avery has her own ideas!

avery's second birthday

This year's birthday celebration for Avery was small but still sweet.  She had a fun time, especially with all the balloons (but really, what two-year-old doesn't love balloons?!).  Since her birthday is near Valentine's Day, red and pink served as color inspiration.  We'll see what Avery decides on for next year!

From left to right, top to bottom:

Valentine I love you mix from Papabubble in NY.  Each piece of candy is a work of art.

Cookies from IKEA with a smattering of heart-shaped sprinkles.

White peach marshmallows from our local Blackmarket Bakery.

Coconut meringues from Blackmarket Bakery.

Mother's Circus Animal cookies.  A classic.

Recycled heart-shaped crayon favors.

Blackmarket Bars from Blackmarket Bakery.

Mini Creme Brulee Tarts from Blackmarket Bakery.  Definitely some of their best tarts!

Kettle-cooked jellies from Trader Joe's.  Avery absolutely loves these.

Vanilla and chocolate cupcakes from Susiecakes.  Best cupcakes in town!

A make-your-own-snack mix bar with pink polka dot portion cups from Bake It Pretty.

what to do with a picky eater

Avery is undoubtedly a picky eater.  Here's some advice I've been reading by Ellyn Satter and Mark Bittman, in case anyone else has a choosy eater on their hands!  Here are some nice articles on my favorite Canadian food blog as well:
