But in the tub he didn't care much for actually painting with his fingers
Instead he turned them into boats:
Next time I'll bring out the paint brushes, I think he'll like that better. You can find the recipe for the bath paints as well as many more ideas at Pepper Paints
A few weeks ago I participated in a Craft Swap with my girls at AMH. I received my box of crafts last weekend, and yesterday we pulled out the Playdough made by Jennifer and CJ had a blast playing with it.
Lettuce topped with taco meat, cheese and homemade Taco sauce.
Heres the recipe:
1 can (8 ounces) unseasoned tomato sauce, preferably no-salt
1 teaspoon ground cumin
1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
2 teaspoons dried minced onion
1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
1/2 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
Cayenne pepper or hot sauce to taste
Salt and pepper to taste
Combine all the ingredients in a small bowl. Let set for at least 30 minutes to allow flavors to blend. Taste for seasoning and adjust as needed. Serve with Beef Tacos or in Mexican-style dips and salads.
Monday night I made a Caramel Pumpkin Cake for playgroup.
I'll share the recipe for that later. I always leave off the frosting/glaze.
Last thing on the food subject. My breakfast consisted of scrambled eggs with cheese, onions and peppers and bacon on the side. Yummy.
I'm off to play with the little one for awhile and start tidying the house. Have a wonderful Wednesday!
Today as a treat I got him an ice cream cone from Dairy Queen. He looked so grown eatting his cone.
Oh and the ice cream in his hair? That was my fault. LOL I stuck the cone in his hair climbing the steps into the house.
Well I'm off to finish up the Tacos and get the kithen tidied so I can make a Caramel Pumpkin cake for our playgroup's potluck tomorrow. :)

They turned out so great. We had them for supper friday night with baked beans. And then Saturday I had the leftovers on a salad with lettuce, peppers, onions, bacon bits, Provolone cheese and Ranch dressing.
So with that... Onward we march.... I have big plans for the day. First on the list is to throw away all the candy thats left in the house from Valentine's Day. With the exception of my hubbys candy, half of that will go into his truck and the other half will be put in a tupperware container in the top of the cabinet. If I don't see it, I forget about it and therefore I don't eat it. I also need to take a much needed trip to the Post Office to drop off 20+ packages. *yikes* Its alittle cool outside today but perhaps I can talk my sister into taking a walk with me as well.
I cooked the burgers in a frying pan with a little onion and garlic powder. When they were done, I topped them with a slice of Provolone cheese, some lettuce, onion and One Carb Ketchup. On the side I had a salad with lettuce, onion, pepper, cheese and ranch dressing and a pickle spear.
Tonights total was approx 8 carbs.
And then to complete the night...... Strawberries. I mashed up some strawberries with 3 packets of Truvia and topped it with some Redi-Whip.
