These lunch box jokes have become the talk of the lunchroom. I started writing notes in the girls’ lunchboxes when they were in preschool (even wrote about it a couple years ago here).

Apparently their boxes get passed around the table because everyone wants to read the joke of the day.

My mom has now passed on this experience with my girls. Uncle Will still enjoys making them too! There are endless ways to paint and decorate them. Older kids may enjoy painting superhero faces or
I had a great time planning this surprise 60th birthday party for my mom. The pink and gold colors mixed with the mason jars and floral arrangements turned out perfectly with the “Having a Ball Since 1956” theme. With some help from my aunt, we had some old (and some newer) photos displayed on the dessert table and as the backdrop over the dinner table.
