Once Upon a Time. . .

Dreams Do Come True. Retold by Della Cohen

. . . there was a little girl who loved to read. Let's call her Miss M. Miss M's grandmother loved to buy her books, and one fine day, she did just that. This time Miss M's grandmother bought her a retelling of Disney's Cinderella. . . .

Miss M loved her new book so & asked her Mummy & Daddy to read it to her each night, and every day. Mummy didn't mind so much as she was a Disney fan from long ago and quite enjoyed finding a Disney story that didn't have any scary bits, like the moving pictures that she shared with Miss M. (Monsters Inc, Toy Story, Sleeping Beauty, The Little Mermaid. . . )

 When Mummy found out that Cinderella was going to be re-release on DVD & Blu-Ray on the 2nd October, she decided it was a good time to bring out a reward chart and tempt Miss M down the path to etiquette and fine manners. To encourage Miss M to participate in this speical time, Mummy decided to make Miss M some special lunches to take with her to Day Care.

The first day Miss M requested Lucifer, the cat.

Mummy thought it would be a good idea to include Jaq & Gus the mice as well.

Two other mice also came along for the ride, getting ready to be transformed into horses for the big ball.

(This time I used pumpkin seeds for eyes, the Tutorial for Strawberry Mice can be found here)

Gus was made with a boiled egg, cheerio slices for ears, black sesame seeds for eyes, a strawberry nose, and his shirt is made from processed cheese.

Gus' tail was the end of the cheerio ;-)

Jaq was made from a Kraft Cheese Wedge with cheerio slices for ears, black sesame seed eyes, a strawberry nose, and strawberry hat

Pinspiration for Gus & Jaq found: here
