What Works for me Wednesday!

>> Wednesday, November 5, 2008

Am I over doing it? Probably so....but I don't care. To begin....upon moving, one of the first things I did was enroll the boys in a co-op montessori based preschool in our local town. It has been wonderful! The boys need the social and learning time while mommy needs the 2 1/2 hours of free time. They focus on a letter a week. Reading and writing skills, nature, animals and music and movement. Right up my alley. Since its a co-op, I am responsible to work in either of their classes about once every other month. Friday is Zaidens birthday, so I'm working in his class tomorrow. The parent helper, as us co-op moms are called, is in charge of snack and if its your childs birthday, you can bring in a treat. So in Tirzah fashion, I wanted to make something homemade and different. I didn't want cupcakes (too typical and too messy for a class of 3 year olds who would just eat the frosting) and I wanted something semi-healthy but yet yummy for a preschooler. I was browsing the food blogs- like usual- and found this great recipe. I'm a sucker for anything pumpkin related and this had me drooling. Check out this blog: http://pinchmysalt.com/2007/10/18/pumpkin-spice-scone-recipe/

This is what all the little three year olds are getting tomorrow for Zaidens birthday treat. Along with Masa crackers, Cut up pears and cheese. I also made some pumpkin spice playdough, wrapped it up pretty and tied on a leaf cookie cutter.

Am I over doing it? Probably yes......but it works for me.

Does it work for you?

Doesn't it make you want to be three tomorrow?

Okay, you are officially mommie of the year! I wish Emily and Dylan could be there to celebrate Z's birthday with you all. I know the kids will love the playdough. You are so creative! Love you!
