Mud Pie Mavens

This weekend Toots had a friend that spent the night with her. And then, they decided to make mud pies. Seriously.
The ratio of water to dirt was discussed thoroughly.
Somehow toes ended up as part of the recipe.


My mini baking pans were used for just the perfect pie.


Left to dry in the sun.....




grass makes the perfect adornment.

  10. So far my three year old son doesn't know that mud is, as the "city life" makes it hard indeed to discover.

    Please have you all a good start into the new week.

  15. Haven't made those in FOREVER! There is a definite dirt to water ratio tho in order to get them just right. Looks like your daughter and her friend achieved that. Love the grass garnish, too.

  18. I'm your newest follower! I am green with envy everytime I see someone who is a good photographer. I'm lucky if I get everyone's head in the shot. With seven kids, it's pretty good odds that someone needs to be photoshopped anyways.
