There's a Monster on my Plate!

Don't you just love the Mercer Mayer books?  They are fun and often hit home with childhood fears.  We like them all, but one of our favorites is There's Something In My Attic.

In this story, there is a monster in the attic, and he comes to steal the little girl's teddy.  She decides to fight back by attempting to lasso the monster and take him to her parents' bedroom.


So Pierce enjoyed a monster turkey burger with his fries and broccoli.
He ate the eyes first.  He just loves olives and pickles.

Then we got some sheets of magnet out to make some  magnet monsters for our fridge. 
We made different expressions for the monster. 
Pierce really likes switching out the faces.
