Bug had a birthday recently.

Of course, this had me looking at pictures …

(I stumbled across some other pics that I want to share with you as well … they are unrelated to Bug’s birthday … tomorrow …)

This was Bug when she was, well, just a little bug …

So small …

Look at those little feet …

Purpley03Whaaaaa!!  Where does the time go?!

On birthdays in our family, the birthday person gets to choose all meals and snacks. This usually means all their favorites.  But this year, Bug decided to use the color purple as her theme. And this meant purple food. Hmmmm …

“Good morning, Sarah. That’s a nice purple dress, very purpley.”

I couldn’t help myself. … Who knows what that quote is from??

OK, back to the story …

Eating purple food, as it turns out, is, in some cases, typical and in other cases, weird.

Breakfast was …

Purpley05… purple milk (weird), birthday pancakes with purple Dream Whip and sprinkles (typical for birthdays, except the purple Dream Whip), and yogurt with blueberries (typical – we oftentimes simmer blueberries, cool them, and stir them into plain yogurt).

Snack was purple grapes and mozzarella cheese (typical)

Lunch was peanut butter and grape (purple!) jelly (the grape jelly was a sugary treat).

And dinner was …

Purpley06Purple milk (a little weird), purple pasta (totally weird), and other non purple foods (meatballs, salad, bread – and cheese on everything, typical for Bug).

It was fun.

And I’m glad my food was all normal colors the next day.
