Just add ice cream

Some friends of ours recently welcomed their third beautiful child into the world (yay cheese!). I'm well aware that the first few months post-baby are awesome-amazing-crazy-chaotic-tiring all rolled into one. A new baby takes up so much of your time. And if you have another kid or two or three in the house already, add a newborn to the mix and the other kid(s) miraculously NEED your attention every second of the day too :) Am I right?

So what is a friend to do in this situation? Maybe do something nice for the mom, dad and preexisting kids that EVERYone can enjoy? Something fun and yummy that gives everyone a bit of a break from the normal day-to-day craziness (meals, diapers, naps, etc). 

I took to Pinterest to look for some ideas and came across a little 'care package' basket that was ice cream themed. Basically, you fill a basket with ice creams toppings so the family can set themselves up a little 'ice cream bar' at their home when they find the right time!

So that's what I did. Because I'm pretty sure all kids and adults love ice cream, right? And marshmallows and sprinkles and cherries?

Here's the quick little box I put together for our friends. I had Matt drop it off on their front doorstep this weekend.

These little blue containers worked great for the toppings -

I found this box in our basement. A decorative basket would have looked much nicer but a) the box was free and 2) they don't have to return it to us, which is important!

And a quick little note -

Hopefully the kids are over their ice-cream-sundae-induced sugar high by now..... he he he :)
