Muffin Tin Monday - Some Pig!

Oh, I loved this theme just as much today as I have in the past!
We revisited one of the best Muffin Tin Themes,
Children's Literature!
Last time I picked The Boy's favorite story, this time I picked mine, and I made it for the whole family.
One of my favorite Children's Stories of all time is Charlotte's Web ... and I had a few tricks up my sleeve!
I stood by with the camera to catch their faces as they saw their dinner:
Thing 2 was a little perplexed!

The Boy was all smiles!
And Thing 1 was giggling nervously!



What brought on these reactions? It was either this:




Or these:






The kids all thought it was pretty funny to drink from a bottle again, The King was not as amused (he stared them down while they sipped from the bottles).



So, this was our tin:


It consisted of: Pig Slop (mashed potatoes with corn, I went easy on them), Milk in a bottle (that's how Wilbur was fed as a baby), Templeton's Treats (some little goodies that the rat collected for his storage), Candied Apples (from the Fair), Pigs in a Blanket (just had to do that) and little messages from Charlotte on the cookies!




The kids each got their own little personalized message for dinner!
Go check out the others at Her Cup Overfloweth!
