Party Time Tin!

A party on a Monday? Only if it involves a muffin tin. Ha! Honestly, I used the Party Time theme as an excuse to make those delicious soft pretzels again. Our tin contained some yummy dips that go oh so well with soft pretzels. I shaped them into pretzel sticks this time. My girls were very excited about this. Wait, let me clarify. My oldest was excited about the frosting. It was all about the frosting. With sprinkles. See if you can find her in the picture. Can you tell she's excited? There are more pictures from our party posted on the flickr group.
Contents: Marinara sauce, mustard, coarse salt, cinnamon sugar, FROSTING with sprinkles, and cheese sauce.

I'll be at the ocean next Monday so LISA from FRANNY KATE'S CREATIVE STATE will be hosting Muffin Tin Monday. Leave Lisa a comment on Monday, August 11th (or sometime around then) when your post is up. She'll add you to her list of Muffin Tin Mamas. Take a minute to look through Lisa's blog. She comes up with the most WONDERFUL activities to do with her daughters.

Don't forget to leave a comment for your chance to win 2 headbands. I'll close the comments on Tuesday night. The headbands are adult size - they are for you! This is a thank you for you. In response to a few comments - I used to sell onesies, shirts and headbands on etsy. I closed my shop a few months ago to take a breather. Still not sure if I'll open it up again. As for the headband pattern, I figured it out myself after looking at a similar one a friend had. This style of headband is all over. I certainly didn't invent it. I have seen a pattern for (nearly) this exact headband on a blog. Naturally, I don't remember which one.

We unearthed our yellow jacket nest on Sunday. See pictures of it here and here. Yuck, larva!

We had our first muffin tin Monday. It was great fun. At first my kids looked at me a little strange, but they thought it was fun. We will make this a Monday night tradition because school starts Friday and I will be back to teaching.

I did it! I went with more of the "Build-a-..." theme. Build a car! I won't get to see the finished product because I have to go to work. :-( But I'm sure he'll love it!

Next week we are hosting a play group. I'm already brainstorming muffin tin ideas for the group! Maybe we'll make pretzels and go with dips...

I didn't get the memo about Party Time Tins so we just had plain old Muffin Tin Monday at our house. Once again, Haven loved it!

The party tins are so much fun! I just did boring old normal lunch this time. I'm so excited the headbands are adult-sized (even if I don't win, I'm excited for whomever does) ha! Have fun on vaca!
