June 1st - Donut Day!

So I made this adorable craft found on my friend's blog:http://www.mysweetheartmoments.com/
It's essentially a summer advent calendar.


Today was the first day. While planning what to do each day, I discovered that June 1st is National Donut Day. Of course, being of Roach blood (my maiden name and a family that adores donuts), I had to celebrate this one! Mind you, Cooper is only 19 months, so to try and explain the concept of an advent calendar, well, it's a bit tricky. So, when Cooper woke up, I told him he had a surprise waiting in the kitchen. He kept repeating, "Prize, prize". He was so excited to pull the slip of paper out and see a picture of what his "Surprise" was going to be. I took him to get his first donut. We had a blast and it made me look forward to his little "Surprise" each day during the summer!


He apparently follows in Roach fashion....this is what he left of his donut,
not too shabby for such a little fellow!
