These precious s'mores owls were the prize for the class at Camille's school that spent the most at our recent school book fair. The school principal came up with the theme, "Read Some and then Read S'more." My book fair co-chair Jessica took the idea a step further with this super cute owl design, which includes the traditional graham cracker, chocolate and marshmallow, and combines them with a yellow chocolate candy melt and candy corn.

Camille's class won the grand prize, but I was so bummed she was out sick the day of the s'mores party. Rest assured an owl or two were set aside for her to enjoy at home.
The night before the party, Jessica, Alva, Lee and I held a s'mores assembly event at our house, putting together the owls as well as s'mores goody bags for the 2nd and 3rd place classrooms. I thought it all turned out so well!
We also made a s'mores costume for the principal to wear during the school party.
The book fair was a lot of work but a lot of fun, especially since I got to spend so much extra time with my good buddy Jessica. Now our duties are finally done, and all that's left is our celebratory dinner at Bar Food later this month. Bring it!
