Wiggly Worms in Mud - Letter "W"

Our letter of the week is "W" so we made Wiggly Worms in the mud!

1 package of chocolate Jell-O Instant Pudding
2 c. cold milk
1 - 6.5 oz. package Gummy Worms

Follow directions on the pudding box. Then serve the pudding with worms! Easy easy easy and the children love it!

We're still trying to teach Olivia to take little bites!!:)

Sawyer opted for his mud without worms:)

Simple Apple Dumplings

My mom first found this recipe several years ago in Southern Living magazine. It has been a favorite ever seen!! 

Simple Apple Dumplings


  • 1 (8 ounce) package refrigerated crescent rolls
  • 2 medium apples, peeled and quartered
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 cup orange juice
  • 1/2 cup butter
  • 1/2 teaspoon apple pie spice

  • Directions
  1. Unroll crescent dough and separate into eight triangles. Roll up one apple wedge in each triangle; pinch edges to seal. Place in a greased 8-in. square baking dish.
  2. In a small saucepan, bring sugar, orange juice and butter to a boil. Pour over dumplings (dumplings will float to the top). Sprinkle with apple pie spice. Bake, uncovered, at 350 degrees F for 20-25 minutes or until golden brown. Serve warm.
I like to add frozen vanilla yogurt on top!

I think the orange juice is what makes this recipe soooo delicious!!
