Food, Family, Fun - First Grade

Yes, I have birthday updates complete with tips and how-to's BUT I must interrupt your regularly scheduled party posts to bring you an important update:

Munchface started first grade!

As is our second time doing tradition, we spent Labor Day out and about.  Munch and I caught a matinee showing of The Odd Life of Timothy Green.  

It was a G-R-E-A- T first "real people" movie for her... Big movies for big kids, I guess.

Another second time ever tradition is Munch's Thank You dinner for Hubbs and me.  After running errands most of the day, we returned home for her restaurant set-up.  She used leftover birthday party decor to create a cute little space.

 I turned around for 5 minutes and she was standing on my table.   She had the nerve to ask for tape when I saw her - busted.  Tape? Girl, get DOWN!

"Mommy, doesn't it look so nice?" - Munchface

She used her old writing practice sheets as placemats.  Genius!

I had the idea (after I saw her placemats) to create silverware pouches using her writing paper.  Then Munch added napkin rings and wrote our names:

I love the collaborative effort!  O and I only put my 2 cents in for the pouches and the drink flags.

Do you see her coloring sheets in her restaurant for the kids?  She thought of everything.

Don't you love the back-to-school banner?! All of the printables are free and can be found here.

She even made mini chocolate chip cookies.

Didn't the apple-shaped cookies turn out fabulous?

With the food ready and everything set up, Hubbs and I were escorted to our seats by Munchface, the owner of Zion's Applebees Restaurant.

We all thanked God for the food and for our family.  We also prayed that Munch has a successful school year.  After her bath, we ALL slept well:)

The end.

How'd you bring in First Day Eve?  How was your little one's first day?  Munch's school pics coming tomorrow!
