My daddy has a little bit of everything growing in his yard. However, Little Mister has always loved his little lemon tree. This year we brought a few home and decided to make a 'new' Christmas tradition around here.
First, we rolled the lemon and squeezed it to get the insides all juicy. My little guy really enjoyed this part!!
When I could talk him into giving me back the lemon, I cut a small X on one side. I carefully inserted a candy cane which, by the way, I had cut both ends off. [Cutting the cane allows the exposed porous ends to easily become a straw.]
The candy cane's sweetness helps the "tang" of the lemon somewhat!
As you can see by the pictures, He really enjoyed it.
I saw this lemon straw somewhere but can't remember. If you have posted it before, feel free to contact me so I can link back to you!
Hope you are beyond blessed during this Christmas season!
