Friday Fun!

Hi, it’s The Bug, and it’s time for some Friday Fun! It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas…

And we are all helping.  I set up the Nativity…

My brother is hanging ornaments…

Any Mommy is being ridiculously nitpicky, which is why we haven’t made much progress beyond this…

And speaking of Christmas, I just wanted to send you a little holiday greeting


A highly accurate family portrait, don’t you think?

If you want to see more photos of me behind-the-scenes of life in the Cupcakes & Kale Chips house and kitchen, follow Mommy on Instagram.

And Mommy wants me to remind you about your chance to win a $600 Visa Gift Card

  • Monday – Need a little help with last minute Christmas shopping?
  • Tuesday – Hmm, not sure yet for today!
  • Wednesday – Wayback Wednesday, and maybe a sweet treat?  Or maybe a healthy side? Or maybe an old family favorite?
  • Thursday – Improv Challenge Lime & White Chocolate, and I think I’ve got some “chow” for you that you ca whip up for Christmas.
