The boys and I have been reading "How To Eat Fried Worms" by Thomas Rockwell. Not exactly classic children's literature, and I had to substitute something slightly more young-child friendly for a couple of the words, but the boys LOVED it. I remember reading it when I was a child, and they had as much fun with it as I did.
To celebrate the end of the book, we spen an afternoon making dirt and worms cupcakes. Devil's food cupcakes filled with chocolate pudding, frosted with chocolate cream cheese frosting and then topped with crushed up oreos and gummy worms.
As you can see, we had a great time!
It was especially nice, as we were joined by Rosie's new friend, who was also adopted from Africa. It's great to have a new friend for Rosie who will be a fantastic role model for her as she grows up.
Okay, I know, there was nothing even remotely healthy about these cupcakes. Maybe that's why they tasted so good!
