For us, some holidays, like Labor Day, are not always celebrated in the traditional way. We did not go to a picnic or spend the day outside.
We actually spent the day in our pajamas, playing games, eating, and watching cartoons.
Because…it is always about the food and the fun.
Big holidays or small celebration, the food is always the star of the show. I often start planning menus for holidays and events early so that I can make sure that everything is just right.
Because it is not always about the big things. It is about the little things that add up to something grand. And, food can always be made into something amazing because it brings families together to talk, bond, and enjoy the magic of the moment.
I want the littles to always look back with fondness on the crazy things that I did, big and small, to make, to create, family memories with something as simple as food.
I have actually posted these cupcakes before. But, when I was planning our Labor Day menu, I knew that I wanted to try these, with a twist – a red, white, and blue twist. I thought that it was the perfect celebratory colors to use. And, my family thought that it was just awesome, which scored me all kinds of wife and mommy points.

Happy Labor Day! I hope that everyone has a good, safe night.
