Happy Valentine's Day Birthday Clifford!

Wow, what a sweet Valentine's Day! My sproutlets came home from school yesterday with almost as much candy as they got trick-or-treating! They'll have pink, red & heart-shaped treats to nibble for weeks :)

I was tired yesterday, so tired that I forgot to take a picture of Sprout's Valentine's Day lunch! You'll have to take my word for it that it was cute and full of hearts Ah well, the important thing is she loved it - and at least in my sleepiness I still remembered to pack it :) I stayed tired all day too, even fell asleep while writing my post of Birdie's Valentine's Day lunch and never finished it. But I got lots of sleep last night - so here it is today:

Did you know that Clifford the Big Red Dog turned 50 yesterday? Fifty! My girls love Clifford - he's even the mascot for Sprout's kindergarten class :)

Birdie's Clifford Love Yumbox bento lunch contains: 
  • heart-sprinkled cherry Trix yogurt (coloured with natural food dye!)
  • grapes, Galia melon & strawberry hearts
  • a heart-shaped hard-cooked egg with a Clifford cupcake pick
  • a heart-shaped frosting drizzled oatmeal bar
  • organic baby carrots, one through a Clifford cupcake ring
  • a red foil-wrapped Hershey's Kiss in the treat well 

There's lots of birthday fun to be had on Scholastic's website.
