Mud Pies = Smiley Girl

Lately it has been raining and pouring (no snoring) quite a bit at my house.  Bex has never been happier!  After a recent "I'm bored", I taught her how to make mudpies! I think she might have thought I was a bit crazy at first but then she got right in there with both hands...and feet.

She left it outside overnight to 'Bake' and she is still in her jammies cause she had to go check on it first thing in the morning!
