It was(n't) a really really windy day

The other week, my loving husband purchased a kite. And for a couple of hours, Miss2 was very excited about flying the kite. They went outside, and by the time I joined them 10 minutes later, she was playing in the trees, picking the grass, talking to Mr11m in the pram. Not interested in the kite. Ever since, she has been talking about flying the kite.

I don't think there would be any problem getting the kite into the air today - when I took the pretty plate outside to photograph it (the usual spot is on the front footpath), some of the trees blew away (and I didn't notice until I presented it to Miss2)... I had to photograph inside, so it isn't the best photograph, but here we go...

Sun - cheese
Kite body - ham and bread
String & tail - tomato sauce (dip-dip sauce) and cheese

Doing a Penguin Dance

My sister and brother-in-law came up to see us today, and while we were waiting for lunch ingredients to be gathered, Miss2 was, well, showing off. Today's episode of dramatic arts by Miss2 featured lots of singing, dancing, and walking like a penguin. If only penguins waddled, shook their bottoms and jumped. Sigh.

This little penguin jumped off the chopping board and into my belly earlier this week:
Body: kiwi fruit
Wing, feet, head: strawberry
A completely efficient, easily little delight to create! Thanks for the suggestion, Esther!
