Happy Birthday Little Bud
Today Little Bud is 4 years old!
I made him a Dirt Desert to take to pre-school tommorow.
First we got a package of Oreos...
Then we squished them to look like dirt...
Then we mixed an 8 ounce package of cream cheese, a cup of sugar and 1/2 of a stick fo butter together...
Then we mixed a package of vanilla pudding according to package...
THEN... folded a tub of Cool Whip into the pudding
Then we folded the pudding/Cool Whip in with the cream cheese/sugar/butter. And then...this is the cute part...we washed out a new dump truck to display the dirt desert it. I did line the truck bed with plastic wrap just in case of lead. Little Bud goes to a preschool for children with behavioral problems and the last thing they need is lead poisoning (last thing anyone needs really!). Little Bud doesn't have behavioral problems but he does have some pretty significant developmental delays and there is no program for children with physical or developmental delays in our area. There used to be, but with funding cuts, the program was forced to close. They just opened two new Methadone clinics though. Ok, sorry I'm getting down from my soap box. What was I saying?...Oh yeah, the dump truck...I put down one layer of "dirt" and then the pudding mix, dirt, pudding and then the rest of the dirt...
Then we added some gummy worms and a little shovel. HOW CUTE IS THAT!
I also made a little sticker for the door with his name on it.
Happy Birthday Little Bud!
Smiles from the farm,
