Quick & Cute Snowman Place Setting

We had chili tonight.  While it was warming up (gotta love a freezer meal) and the Tostitos bag was opening, it hit me that it was the perfect meal to try this out:

Maybe it's because I just came off of the Thanksgiving brain-break, but I went for it.  It took about 5 minutes longer than usual to set the table and the boys were surprised and excited when they saw the snowman place setting. 

I rummaged through our leftover "special" napkins and thankfully, there were two that coordinated.  I guess they wouldn't have cared too much if the hat was orange and the scarf was made with a napkin left from a farm birthday party; but for the matter of this blog... I look much better with this version. ;)

No, my kids don't use a knife or a fork with their chili- but two napkins were pretty helpful. 

Does anyone else have kids that think the napkin is for their drink to sit on?  Drives me crazy.
