muffin tin mondays and holiday cards

Muffin Tin Mondays - anybody heard of these??? i think they are fantastic! i first heard that name on someone's blog (sorry i don't remember who) and then i googled it. You can read all about it on Michelle's blog : Her cup overfloweth. The kids just love when i do this for lunch and i don't do it only on mondays, for me it's when i feel like it and sometimes it's twice a week when the kids ask for it. like tomorrow that's what Brady wants for lunch, he calls them cold lunches in the muffins. In October i would use halloween paper cups and now i get to use my Santa paper cups (aren't they adorable!).
Usually i don't line all the muffin cups, just the ones with wet or sticky items. here's the lunch they got last week: -glass of milk (sometimes i stick a juice box in there)
-peanut butter blossom cookie
-dried fruit puree cubes (don't remember the name but it's like "fun bites"
-leftover spaghetti (ok, Brady had seconds of this one!)
-turkey slices
-mozzarella cheese that i cut with a snowflake cookie cutter (that was my favorite piece of their meal!)

Here are a couple of pictures i took of Charlie and my dad tonight, i think they look fabulous!

Ok Ok i said there'd be holiday cards.... here's one (i'll show another tomorrow + other holiday goodies!) i used the Collage Press holiday collection - i just love it! so far i've made 4 cards and 1 layout (they will be revealed soon...)

Oh yeah! remember a while back i said i had good news but couldn't share until december? well don't worry i didn't forget; come back on the 18th and all will be revealed!

thanks for stopping by,
