Thankful Thursday

I have not posted a Thankful post in a few weeks so I thought it was time!!  Don't think I am not thankful cause I AM!!!  I have been so blessed lately...there is so much gratitude in my heart!  YAY!

So I hope you all have been experiencing God in a much deeper way this 2012!!

Here is my list of things I am so thankful for:

1.  God's never ending LOVE for me!  :)  I am his beloved!  YAY!

2.  We had safe travels for all our Christmas plans which included my husband driving to New York.

3. Our church blessed us with the church van!  :)   A couple years ago it was donated to the church but we do not use it enough to cover the insurance expense so they blessed us with it!  :)

4. My kids are healthy and happy and tons of fun.

5.  My husband got a pay raise!  Can I get an AMEN!  :) What a blessing that we were not expecting.  It worked out so well because I have not been cleaning the church anymore so we have lost that little income but now with the raise no big deal!  :)  YAY God!  :)

I could probably rattle off 5 more but I do not want to make this too long or annoy anyone who might be going through a trial.  Trust me I have had my trials to and no worries those trial will eventually work out and Glory will be given to God and we will have that Aha moment and say yes God you knew the best plans for me.

What are you praising him for this week?

Liquid Chalk spray! Chalk Idea #7

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! She is my little model... she kept saying "take my picture mom." She is like her

Toddler Rainbow Craft for St. Patricks Day

St. Patrick's day is March 17th so its approaching quickly.  I have a few ideas on art and food projects that i want to do with the kiddos.  Hopefully I will have enough time to complete them and share them with you.   This was a super easy one for those little hands.  I cut the stripes of colored paper but if you are working with a preschooler or school aged child then they can practice cutting.  The two toddler boys here only had to glue the pieces on their piece of paper.  EASY, but they enjoyed it!  :)  It sure has brightened my kitchen with them hanging on the fridge!  :)   I also talked more about the Promise God gave us with the rainbow since I know that history a whole lot better then the history of the Irish Holiday!
