christmas recipe: grinch kebabs and fruit salad

i saw this online and thought they were too cute to resist! since k is allergic to strawberries per the original recipe, i used raspberries instead. also the original recipe had a marshmallow on top but to keep it completely fruit, i added another piece of banana on top. with the remaining fruit, i made a simple fruit salad with all the fruits k can eat so we all enjoyed a cute and refreshing dessert.
