Grilled cheese rice patties

It just got so cold over night. Apparently, there was a little bit of snow last night too. I cannot believe winter's almost here already! Last weekend, we just put Halloween decorations away, and I took a quick nap and came down and I see our 12' Christmas tree in the living room. Steve is a planner but this was a little ridiculous. Until we moved here, we always had a small tree that is just a little bigger than the Charlie brown tree. Even though it's so small, watering it, cleaning up the needles on the floor was pain. So we got a gigantic fake tree, now that we have space. Haha. One good thing about having a fake tree, you can put it up whenever you want and clean up is easy. 

And this tree is really making my tot excited. He was so excited, running around the tree, singing and dancing. This Christmas will be so much fun now that he understands what's going on better. We didn't decorate the tree yet as Steve thinks it's too early. Uh...if it's too early, why bother putting up the tree already? Sometimes I don't know what's going on in his head. But it sure is making everyone in this house excited for Christmas already. And what is this tree to do with grilled cheese rice patties? The other day, as my tot was going to school, I asked him what he wanted me to make for lunch. He said he wanted to eat something that looks like a tree I was going to make some quick grilled cheese and use a tree cookie cutter but I didn't want to eat the border of the shape after cutting the tree for Mr. tot. And I had some leftover rice and veggies needed to be used. So when he came home, I said "Look, it's green like a tree!" He bought it. Awesome. =)
