A Season for giving

Christmas time is so fun because I love to give presents.  I sometimes like to buy too much for my children but I have done a great job at resisiting this year.  Instead of spending spending on things I know they dont need we are trying to find different ways to bless others.  We are making some homemade gifts and baking gifts!  :)


This year our church is buying goats  for families in Haiti!  It only costs $40 per goat and provides a huge blessing to a family!  I am hoping we hit our goal and get enough money to bless many families in need! :) So if any of you reading this wants to help buy a goat please let me know and leave an email addy in the comment section!  :)  



What will you be doing to be a giver this year?  How can you be the hands and feet of Jesus?

We decided as a family to buy gifts through Heifer International for our extended families and parents this year. The girls have had so much fun looking through the catalog and picking out animals to give. It's also wonderful to watch their minds and hearts grow to include children across the world!

Last week we tried out the fizzing sidewalk chalk- click here to read that review. This week it is liquid chalk spray.  They are a bit similar but yet different.  Here is how to make it: Supplies: 1 tsp. washable tempura paint 1 cup of hot water 1/2 cup of cornstarch squirt of dishwashing liquid 1 squirt bottle- I found them at the dollar store 1.  Add cornstarch to one cup of hot water whisking to mix so that there are no clumps. 2.  Add one teaspoon of washable tempura paint and a quirt of dishwashing liquid.  Mix well. 3.  Pour it into your squirt bottles and shake well. 4.  Go have fun!!!   This kept my daughters attention much longer the the fizzy chalk last week.  I also think this was easier to work with and just more fun in general.  I love seeing the chalk wet but then to see it dry.  I think it dried darker so it was fun to see the changes.  :)  Ready, Set, Go!  Have some fun!
