Tiny Tot School

We officially started tot school this week. The theme for this week is Rainbows and is being hosted by:
We first made a rainbow shaker fill with rice and listened to the Colors Song. Shelby Lynn really like this because she loves to dance. We did this each day!

Shelby Lynn's friend Ellie came over and we made koolaid playdoh. I was going to make the rainbow colors, but ran out of salt so only made purple.

We also went to library and got a book on rainbows:

And we also played with the rainbow nesting cups, I don't have a lot of pics with Shelby Lynn because I didn't want to interupt her play. We had loads of fun and are looking forward to next weeks theme!

The Votes Are In...

And the ribs are a winner! We really enjoyed them. I took them out of the crockpot and put them under the broiler with some BBQ sauce while I was finishing the sides. Really Yummy!! I think in John McCain's orginal recipe he grills them, which with the dry rub that would be really good as well, but if you don't have time to do that, than the crockpot is the way to go!

Muffin Tin Mondays!

Okay so this is our first attempt at Muffin Tin Monday. Our host for this fabulous idea is (Her Cup Overfloweth). Since this is our first time playing along I didn't go for a theme, but I can't wait for next week's theme: Family Heritage. This is the only small muffin pan I have and as you can see it is well used, if Shelby Lynn likes this I will have to go get her a cute one!
