Raspberry red jello

I let Caroline have a picnic last Sunday night - grilled cheese, peas, and raspberry jello. I usually let her pickup the jello, but I didn't really want to deal with the grass+jello combination and I made her eat from a spoon. She begrudgingly complied and ate about 2/3 of her dessert. She went to play and I left the picnic things on the blanket to collect later and watered my plants. I turned around to see what she was doing and she was elbow deep in red jello, helping herself to what was left in the cup. I didn't really have to worry about grass on the jello - what didn't make it to her mouth landed on her shirt. Tigger helped with the clean up. Jello really is yummier with your fingers anyway! (And, yes, it did come out of her shirt!)

That's too funny. It's always fun to clean up their sticky fingers.
