Sick Day #2--Doggie Fruit Snack

For today's fun snack, after Scott got home from school and Sam woke up from his nap, we made these CUTE Doggie Fruit Snacks that I found on Mandy's fun blog, Gourmet Mom-on-the-Go.  It was a good time to do these, since Parker is sick and Scott is grounded (bummer for him!  He failed a test in school that he wouldn't study for and that was the deal we made.).  These are so fun and easy, just like the frogs from yesterday.  I'll have to see if I can be creative and think of more on my own.  Or better yet, let the boy's imaginations take over. 

Wanted to do a group picture, but guess who wouldn't be in it?  I do have a son who is almost 11, but you just about wouldn't even know it sometimes.  You can see lots of  younger pictures of him on the sidebar, but for the last few years, Scott just will not be in pictures if he has any say in it.  Sigh.

This is Scott's Doggie.

Parker's doggie.  (He's feeling better!  He still had a fever this morning, but hasn't since.  He's quite back to normal, but I won't let him go play with friends and it's killing him.  It's a gorgeous 70 degrees outside today!  They are both grounded from their Game Boys and Wii for the weekend, and since there is no school tomorrow, that will really stink for them--and me to be honest!  I know, I know, what mean, horrible parents!  They were both caught in their beds the other night (when they should have been sleeping) playing their Game Boys.   Ought-O!  Bye-bye Game Boys.

Taylor!  I think it's funny that in every picture of Parker and Taylor they always seem to have the same expressions on their faces.  Cute faces, though!

Sammie!  (Remembering he just woke up from a nap.  I don't always let his hair go crazy like this, but no matter to me--it's cute!  (Mom!)

Next rainy or sick day, try these cute puppies with your kids!

I'm kind of bummed, I completely forgot that I bought some strawberries just for their ears and couldn't for the life of me remember, even after opening the fridge where the strawberries were staring right at me, to get the carrots.  Sigh.  The strawberry puppy is pretty cute, too.  You could really use all kinds of things for these!

Ha ha - if your kids think you're mean, my kids aren't allowed to watch TV, play on the computer, or use their Nintendos during the week. But that's only during the school year.

Fruit puppies are just so cute, too bad my tribe would never eat them!

I never do cute snacks like that for my kids. Another reason you're a way better mom than I am. LOVE LOVE LOVE The frog, and you're right, the strawberry puppy was super cute.
