I'm Thankful For... Bento Blog Hop

Today I am participating in the Bento Bloggers & Friends I Am Thankful For Blog Hop.

I Am Thankful For My Daughter!
My daughter *LOVES* to draw so I asked her to draw a picture of herself for me to copy for this bento. Her name is Dori, which I have spelled out in cookies. (kind of hard to see against the carrots!)
11/15: I'm Thankful for Dori- Nutella Sandwich topped with my daughter made out of tortilla, Provolone, nori, & edible marker, craisins, carrots, and TJ's Alphabet Cinnamon Cookies that spell DORI. We iced the cookies & added sprinkles cause that's the way my daughter rolls! I adore this girl! She is smart, silly, & sassy! Just like me! LOL!
Now click on the button below and visit Mowie's blog. Then continue on and visit all the other participants in this introspective hop!
