Kids & Their Crazy Eating Habits!!

When my middle daughter first started eating solid foods, she LOVED Spaghetti!!  I mean loved it like could eat it for every meal loved it!  Well things changed after a while and we couldn't get her to touch it.  She would maybe take one or two bites and that was it.  Well I think I finally figured out what the problem was!  I used to make actual Spaghetti noodles back when she was little and I ended up switching to Penne, because it was much easier for the kids to pick up and eat.  This past Wednesday, I decided to use some of the Spaghetti noodles that had been in the pantry for a while and she ATE IT UP!!  You would've thought I'd laced it with sugar!  So I guess from now on I'll be using Spaghetti instead of Penne!

Of course being the child of a scrapbooker, she wanted me to take her picture and like any good scrapbooking mommy, I grabbed my camera and snapped away.  I used Sketch #163 from Creative Scrappers for this one.  It is also for the Fabulous Friday Challenge (7.8) at Frosted Designs this week.  The challenge was a Recipe Challenge, using 1.
