How did you spend your St. Patricks Day?

So my lucky duck boys got to spend their Spring Break in Florida with Nana & Papa. They came back on the night of St. Patricks day - and I figured after Florida... how could I compete with that??? I left work early and hit the store - trying to come up with any fun green ideas I could as fast and cheap as possible - while still putting together a real meal... Let the Montage begin...
Green Mini Pizza's: I bought Grands Jr's... Squished them out... sponged them with green food coloring... Baked them for about 5 minuts... topped them with their favorite pizza toppings and then baked for about another 7 minutes.

Sugar Free Cupcake Mix - Green Food Coloring - White Frosting - Green Sprinkles. 
Instant festive treats that were the highlight of the night :)

A little green Pizza for Ms. Rozzlyn & some pears on her favorite green sectioned Nuby plate.

The boys had their green pizza - some Green pouches of applesauce - on green plates... with some green strawberry kiwi natural sparkling water.  (They thought their "soda" was SOOOOO cool and little did they know it had none of the usual junk soda does.)

  
And they each got a goodie bag full of random green treats... I gotta say - I hit this holiday out of the park... they were SO SO happy with their surprise St. Patrick's Day "party".

LOVE LOVE LOVE the Nuby Octopus Floating Bath Toy

We're a huge fan of bath time in this house... and all of our toys have pretty much been replaced by Nuby. I've always had an issue with cheap toys that suck in water and get slimy and mildew in them. Gross. Nothing worse then squirting a toy at a baby and a chunk of who knows what comes out... not cool in my book. When I became a Nuby Mommy Blogger the first things on my list were new toys and Nuby has gone ABOVE and beyond my expectations. I have been so thrilled with every single one of them.
The newest one on our list has been the Octopus Floating Bath Toy... It sits on top of the water and comes with three little rings that you toss onto its arms. Ms. Rozzlyn LOVES it. Its easy for her to hold on to - which is great because the first thing she wanted to do was poke and touch all the little bumps.
Its great for hand/eye coordination while she tries to put the rings on the arms... and of course even the older boys have fun making a game of it too. I definitely recommend getting your hands on one of these! They're made to last and you won't be sorry :)

Flower snack keeper - nuby review

I have to take a minute to talk about the insane cuteness of this snack keeper from Nuby... we're all seen them before, right? boring containers that are supposed to keep your kids snacks from spilling all over the place... they rarely work... and are limited in design... but leave it to Nuby to provide us with ANOTHER awesome product...
"No more messy snacks! Our unique Snack Keeper™ cup keeps kid-sized snacks inside the container instead of on the floor or car seat. The soft silicone flaps make it easy to grab snacks without spilling. Nûby™ feeding accessories are made to withstand the challenges of daily use and retain their bright color."
Well - Rozzlyn put it to the test... Shes at that fun *annoying* stage where she likes to take two bites of something then toss it overboard and then do the naughty *adorable* UH-OH!!! when it spills all over the place... but not now Ms. Rozzlyn - you've met your match!
I believe this face was more of a... heyyyyyy wait a minute! She was disappointed where there wasn't a cheerio explosion that hit the ground - mama however, was THRILLED. 

Its so easy to use - and I now find myself bringing this thing everywhere. Especially my office... I can't have her snacky crumbs all over the place - so this is the perfect solution. 
We approve Nuby!!

AHHHHH!!! Nuby iMonster Feeding Set Review

Who says you can't have fun with your food?? With the Nuby iMonster feeding set - fun is mandatory... The set features super cute designs of little monsters - ready to eat whatever dinner you don't finish...
I use them round the clock for all their meals as they are built to withstand hot or cold temps... and just toss them in the dishwasher when I am finished.

"Each piece in this feeding set is specially designed to be easy for little hands to hold and use. Toddler Plate and Bowl are ideal for children who are beginning to feed themselves. Suitable for warm or cold foods. Our colorful forks and spoons are designed to meet all of these special needs for either left or handed or right handed babies."
This set is so fun for kiddo's of all ages - The spoon and fork are PERFECT for Rozzlyn as she is just beginning to learn to use them - and the deep bowl makes that even easier for her to scoop up the grub. Though - she is still a big fan of her hands for scrambled eggs...
 Izzaq had fun with his waffles this morning... making faces at his monster plate... almost challenging his monster to eat his waffles before he did... Izzaq won this battle :)
Another great product by a company that I am so proud to stand behind. Thank you Nuby for all your awesomely creative designs that make meals fun and easy!
Want your own? You can get them by visiting www.buybabydirect.com. The iMonster feeding set is just $12.99.
