Here are the results of an impromptu photo shoot with my youngest daughter;

She's usually not quite so compliant when it comes to pictures.  She was in a good mood today though so I took advantage.

Rain and Playdough

The wonders of home made playdough on a rainy day.  No tennis, no soccer, no piano, not even any homework.  They literally played with playdough from the time they got home from school until I had to force them to clean up for dinner.  That was close to 3 hours!  I had made my youngest a couple of batches of playdough intending to keep her busy while her sisters were away at school so I could do some housework.  Who knew it would have given me time to clean the WHOLE house.  Did I?  That's not the point. 

Playdough Recipe
1/4 cup salt
1/2 cup flour
1 tsp. cream of tartar
1/2 cup water
1 TBSP veggie oil
food coloring of your choice

Mix all very well in a saucepan over medium heat stirring constantly until playdough forms a ball.  Remove from heat.  Remove from sauce pan to wax paper.  Cool and knead.  Store in airtight container or ziplock bag.
