Best Daddy Ever!

I got to sit back and enjoy watching my hubby interact with our kids last night.  We were at a 4th of July celebration and as we were waiting and listening to a polka band the kids were snuggling and having daddy time.  :)  

I adore it and I love seeing how much love they each have for each other.  I pray that the love and time that my hubby and I have for our children grows.  We never want our children to have to fill our time and love with someone else.  

I also want to talk about the 4th of July celebration we attended!  IT WAS AWESOME!!!  I really felt like it did such a great job of being patriotic!  Most of the time now you go see fireworks and that is it, people are having BBQ's and having fun but we neglect to remember how and why we are celebrating our INDEPENDENCE!  At this celebration there were 2 characters who shared some history with us, Abe Lincoln and Thomas Jefferson.  It was a breath of fresh air to listen and remember the start of this great country...especially with this year being an election year!!!  After they were done with the speeches they started playing "I am Proud to be an American" which then led into fireworks and more and more songs.  All the songs were patriotic and some were hymns!  I had never been to a firework presentation like this one and I am already planning on going back to it next year!!  :)  

I also have a praise report that my 15 month old was not scared of the fireworks, he kept his eyes on them the whole time!  HE LOVED THEM!!! :) My daughter has always enjoyed them too!  

Happy 4th of July everyone... Stay safe!  :) :) :) 


I love our kids! I love you. Also babe, the music was definitely bluegrass, not polka.

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
