I used a Lunch Punch to make an airplane in the clouds peanut butter sandwich to represent those who defended from the skies, blue vanilla yogurt represents those who served at sea, and green apple soldier gummies represent those who were part of the ground forces. There are also some oatmeal cookies cut into stars. The soldiers are in a red cup to represent the red poppies my fellow Canadians wear on our version of Veterans Day, also November 11th, called Remembrance Day. Since my American Sailor Boy, our sproutlets and I live in the USA, I wasn't able to find a poppy - next year I'll make or order some ahead of time :)
The camouflage backdrop is a piece of their Daddy's uniform from when he was in Iraq. We are so proud of him, and thankful for him and his fellow service members, and especially grateful to all those who served and fought for the freedom we enjoy today!
