Last night just before the humans in our house ate dinner, Elizabeth gathered her beloved blanket, Kiki, and Paulie's ugly doll, Babo, for a friendly tête-à-tête over felt food. They dined on their new reclaimed teak wood dining table, which formerly held my Mother's Day gifts from Paul, and sat on lovely corrugated seating. Elizabeth is famous for her dining parties around here, and I think kid-hosted, animal/doll/blanket parties would make a good series. So comment here if you'd like to participate. On Friday, I'll post the links to all participating blogs.
For dessert, the humans in our house dined on these yummy butterfly pretzels. I hurriedly threw them together at the last minute to celebrate Elizabeth's pet butterfly at school, Butterball, who has had the last 4 weeks of his caterpillar/chrysalis/butterfly life documented in excruciating detail by Elizabeth. The idea came from Crescent Moon, who took more time and made them look lovely. They were a huge hit with my kids, and I'm happy anytime 2 pretzels plus 5 chocolate chips equals dessert. :)
