Silly Supper

When the world tells you not to put your elbows on the table, not to play with toys while eating, no singing, and that we never ever LAUGH at the table, what do you do?

You have a Silly Supper, that's what.

Once you find the secret to green eggs and ham, you are unstoppable.

In the spirit of silliness, I couldn't help but use my favorite dishes. Aren't they cute?!

Bringing stuffed animals to the table was not only allowed, but encouraged. Here Humphrey is flanked by Lambie and Lambie.
Some choose to attend with a tutu on their head...
...while others just couldn't decide on just one hat so they wore it all. Is it any wonder that its the girl who couldn't decide what to wear and the girl who thought she needed a silly outfit not just silly hat?
He did very well considering they don't teach How to Cut Your Food While a Tutu Keeps Falling Over Your Eyes 101 in school these days.

After being joined by yet another Lambie{creativity in naming does not abound here}, all three fell by the wayside leaving Humphrey to finish his meal alone.

I didn't realize my hat looked like a pirate's hat until after we had finished eating.{You'd think I'd notice because the black part has a skull and crossbones on it.} I believe this had something to do with the fact that the carrots were burning and the smoke alarm was going off. I further believe that had I realized this earlier I would have found something else because me and pirates? we don't get along. Don't even bring up Pirates of the Caribbean around me. {Molly did have a good time even if she doesn't look it here!}

Silly Supper was a huge success with all involved. Rumor has it the troops will be asking for another Silly Supper very soon. Preferably the next will go off without burned carrots,fire alarms and pirate hats.

That looks so fun! I remember when I was little, on special days (report card day, Valentine's Day...) we would have a "Backwards Dinner." We would eat dessert first and then the real meal. We absolutely loved Backwards Dinner days!
