My Review: 

I am happy to report that I without the help of my husband, set up the "Snack Shack!"  GO ME!   :)  HUGE THUMBS UP!!  I know there are a ton of single mom's out there and ladies you can set this up!  The instructions were pictures guiding with alphabet letters, "a" matches with "a", etc etc.  There was only one little confusing part but within a few minutes I figured it out and completed the playhouse.  

The next stage was painting and making it perfect for my little daughter.  We went to the store and she was allowed to pick out 3 colors to paint which included pink, purple, and yellow.  :)  Here are a couple pictures of her painting.  (She did do a good job but I did later touch up the painting.)

The only concern I have is how to store the "Snack Shack."  It is cardboard but it will take time to disassemble.  I wish there was an easier way for storage but I think we will have to keep it in the play room for summer and then for winter take it apart and hope to put it together again next year.  

 After painting for a little while she decided to paint her hands...silly girl!

After the "Snack Shack" was finished being painted we brainstormed a name for it.  We  titled it "Selah-Made Lemonade."  We also decided to put a Bible verse on the top signs (hubby did them) We used a verse that uses the word taste because well it fit!  :)  

Here Selah is tracing over the Menu, which was lemonade, brownies, and cookies. :) The company does state that the playhouses are meant for indoor use since they are not made to withstand the outside elements, but with parental eyes we used ours outside. 

ARE YOU READY TO ENTER TO WIN YOUR OWN BUILD A PLAYHOUSE ??  Winner will get to chose between the "Cosmic Cruiser" or the "Dream Machine."

The Day of our Sale: 
One thing that my husband and I have been trying to teach our kids is a giving heart.  We have been discussing tithing, giving, and blessing.  So we had our daughter chose something to donate her money too.  For this first sale she had decided to donate her money to buy a goat for a family in Haiti.  (This is something that our church had done in December)  :)  I am one happy mommy to report that we reached our goal to buy one goat!  :)  I am so happy and I can see she is happy too!  :)     During the sale we met a neighbor and her dog, and a handful of kids in the neighborhood.  We also had several other friends stop by to support our stand.  :)  We even had one special customer leave Selah a big tip since he knew the money was going for a goat!  :)  :)  We had about 20 customers and a few of them came back a couple times.  :)  I never remember having a lemonade stand that successful when I was a child.  :) GO SELAH GO!  :)  Or should I say GO GOD GO!  :) We sold 3 pitchers of Lemonade, all the cookies, and almost all of the brownies.  :)  YAY!

Selah selling to her customer, we also worked on coin separation and counting.  (We used a muffin tin to help separate the money)  

The kiddo's waiting for more customers to arrive.

I just wanted to say how awesome your lemonade stand is. Teaching your children such values at an early age and finding ways for them to have fun while helping others...just amazing. I now am inspired to teach my daughter better ways of giving.

Knot Genie Review and Giveaway

If you have a little girl and have not heard of the Knot Genie then you need to watch the following video:   "The Knot Genie™ and Teeny Genie™ Detangling Brushes were created for every mom that has endured the foot stomping and screaming matches that come with brushing their child's hair. With the Knot Genie, even the curliest, most knotted up hair practically slips through the unique bristle configuration – gently and painlessly. Try the Knot Genie on your kids (or on yourself) – you'll be amazed by the ease of brushing, as well as how it virtually stops breakage and split ends. You've wished for hair brushing standoffs to end. Wish granted." My Review:  Thanks to the Knot Genie for sending me the product to conduct my review.  I was not paid for this review and all opinions expressed are 100% mine.  I know I have grown so tired of my daughter coming to tears every morning when we did her hair. I was becoming to think she was the most

Dry Idea: Deodorant Review and Giveaway

I know most of you know I was at kids camp last week and I think I mentioned the humidity and heat that we had that week!  I was daring as I only brought my new Dry Idea  deodorant  that I had never used prior.  I had no idea if it was going to keep me from smelling like B.O or if I was going to have sweaty pits. So how did the Dry Idea hold up to the hot and humid days at kids camp???  Arms raised high during worship in the morning and in the evening!  :)  I was dry and I did not stink!  :) WOOT WOOT!  I had the unscented brand and I usually do prefer a pretty scent but it worked and they do have scents which include powder fresh and cotton dry that I might try in the future.  :) The Dry Idea Roll-On is 24 hour protection, fast drying MicroCotton Formula, hypo allergenic, and contains Vitamin E.  :) Don't like roll on's??  They do offer Clear Gel and an Invisible Solid.  :) Dry Idea provided a free sample of their Advanced Dry roll-On so I could review them.  However,
