Green Eggs and Ham

Lately, Luke has been borrowing lines from one of his favorite books, Green Eggs and Ham. When he doesn’t want to try something, he proclaims, “I no like it in a boat, with a goat, I no like it in a train, in the rain, in a house, or with a mouse”………and on and on.  And he says it with such drama too!

So the other day, for lunch, Joy asked me if we could make green eggs and ham for him. So without letting Luke in on the lunch plans, she went to work. She pulled out the green food coloring and ham. While she did that, I worked on the eggs.



He LOVES surprises, so no problem getting him to close his eyes and wait at the table. He did and we put the eggs and ham before him. He was pretty tickled about it….obviously.....see that grin?



And he ate every single bite too. We put an old shirt over his clothes because I was envisioning green everywhere. However, he did very well and didn’t even make a mess. Joy was the one with green fingers!



Luke was happy to tell everyone that he had green eggs and ham for lunch. Who knew a simple thing like that would make him so happy.

SURPRISE! He had a blast! I used the red paint and glaze this weekend. I like it very much but may put a bit more glaze on it. Thank you so much. Oh is that a wood buning stove behind Luke?

Mama,

I LOVE that last picture of Luke! I'm telling you, he is THE CUTEST little boy in THE WORLD...and he's OURS!

Making green eggs and ham with you was fun (and almost all the green came off my fingers that same day)!

I love you! 8!

God bless you!
Love,
Joy :D

I love that idea. I tried it once with scrambled eggs, but my daughter wouldn't eat it. I think I'll give it another go with my four year old boy. That last picture of your little guy is just plain adorable. I wanna squish him. =)
