Hello folks!

My sincerest apologies for being absent for the last month :(

It's been pretty crazy over here!

Where to start...?

So, it's been confirmed that 
Lily has juvenile arthritis :(
She's only at the onset, 
but she's had 4 bouts of symptoms
in the last 7 months, 
with the most recent being this week.
We are being referred to a new specialist
who specializes in joints, 
and will let you know how things go.

On a happier note,
we've been crazy busy house hunting, and...
We found a house!!
They've accepted our offer,
we've paid the deposit,
and the home inspection is Sunday morning :)
Keeping our fingers crossed,
and praying to St. Joseph
that everything goes well!

I've also been pretty busy since 
wedding season is now in full swing,
and I've got 3 weddings this month
I'm scheduled to sing at! 
All told, 
I'm averaging 3 scheduled rehearsals a week for various gigs,
and about 2-3 miscellaneous gigs each week!
And keep in mind I also have a day job!
Can you say busy??
I love doing it though, so really I can't complain :)

And here we are, and it's June already!
School's out soon, and I'm not sure I'm ready :(
I'm going to miss all the lovely social aspects of school,
For Lily and for myself.
I'll miss my morning chats with the mommies,
and Lily's going to be soooo bored without school!!
We'll definitely be scheduling 
as many playdates as we can this summer!!

So, what happens to the blog in the summer?
Well, I'm not sure :/
I do plan to post pictures,
however it won't be every week.
Come September though, 
we'll be back in full swing!

Thanks for reading Lily's Lunch!!


Yet Another Misc. Lunch

In This Lunch:

Green grape kabobs
Cucumber slices
1 really big strawberry
Multigrain bagel with butter
Chocolate chickie

Spaceship Lunch

This lunch was totally inspired by the fact that 
not all of Lily's apples would fit in one compartment,
so I put them in beside the banana,
and thought:
"Hey, that looks like a spaceship!"
And a spaceship was born :)

Yay for inspiration :)

In This Lunch:
1/2 a banana
1/2 an apple
Cheese whiz sandwich on white bread
White cheddar slice ship and moon
Shredded orange & white cheddar cheese flames
Chocolate chip granola bar ground

Heart Lunch

In This Lunch:
Ham and sliced orange cheddar sandwich on multigrain bread
Raspberry fruit leather hearts
Cucumber hearts
Green apple hearts that turn brown really quickly :/

The 'Normal' Lunch

This particular morning, Lily came into the kitchen, and whined:
"I don't want a theme today.  (Insert another child's name here) says
that my lunches are always the same."
To which I replied: "HUH??"
(If you've seen any other postings on this blog, 
you'd know they're NEVER the same).
So, we devised a plan, and thought we'd try out something new...
NO Theme,
just to see what this child would say.
Of course, and as I suspected, the kid didn't even care about her lunch.
Go figure.
Oh well, back to fun lunches tomorrow :)

In This Lunch:
Ham and cheese whiz sandwich on multigrain bread
Carrot sticks
Cucumber slices

You know when you get to the point

where just thinking creatively is a chore?
