Patriotic Kebabs and Happy 4th!

Hey, friends!  Hope you all are having a wonderful holiday!  My fantastic mother-in-law is letting me borrow her laptop while my computer is still broken {waaaaah!} so that I can share with you about our sweet treats for today.  We had a big family party at my in-laws’ house that was really special because three of LC’s great grandparents as well as all four of his grandparents were able to be there with us.  Our assignment was to bring dessert, so we browsed Pinterest together and agreed on this idea from Val So Cal.

Patriotic Dessert Kebabs

You’ll need:
- skewers
- red fruits {we used strawberries and raspberries}
- blue fruits {we used blueberries and blackberries}
- marshmallows and/or donut holes

 All we did was alternate the fruits and sweet treats on the kebab sticks until they were full.  Everyone enjoyed having a cool, light, refreshing dessert.  We also made layered red and blue Jell-o with cool whip on top, which looked really fun in the bowls, but looked kind of brownish/purplish in the pan {hence, no photo}.

Little Crafter had his eye on a particular kebab he made just for himself.  He loaded it up with munchkins, blueberries, and raspberries…the things he likes best.  This dessert is LC tested and approved!

 We certainly had a fun-filled 4th…and a very VERY tasty one too…not only did we have our yummy dessert, we also had these guys:

If you’ve never had Maryland crabs, friend, you’re missing out!  They’re soooooooooo tasty!  And hey, there’s nothing like taking something that appears to be looking at you, ripping all its legs off, and hitting it with a hammer, right?  Um, yeah.  Anyway, they’re deLICious.
Hope you all are having a Happy 4th!
