  1. OK, I might try it this week, my 5 year old loves to "plan parties" and she'd love this!

    I have a question though, is the ice cream, the milk?

    We, like Charlotte, have a coughing child and would have to substitute something different, my mind is thinking....

  2. Yes, the ice cream is the milk. :) I'm sure you'd be able to come up with a dairy free option that still ties in "milk!"

  3. Jessica, this is our first year celebrating with the Lenten meals and Good Shepherd parties. Thank you so much for the inspiration. My kids are so excited and look forward to every special meal. It has truly been a blessing!
