Light the Night 2013 Campaign



CANCER CURED...

I bet we all can agree that when a cure for Cancer is found there will be lots of celebrations world wide!  I remember in high school my teacher said in only a couple years you will know someone who has or had cancer, sadly I never thought it would be my mother.  Whats worse is being able to count more and more people I know who have battled this disease! 

If you have followed my blog you have seen a post here or there especially in the month of October hearing about the loss of my mother due to her battle with leukemia.  

Ten years may have passed since her going home to Jesus party but the heart ache still is present.  This year my family is helping to make a difference.  We have formed team Bette Boop, thanks to my sister who started this team last year!  I am so proud of her efforts last year that it made me so eager to jump on board the team and get raising funds for Leukemia and Lymphoma Society.  

For more then 60 years, The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society has been solely focused on people with blood cancers. 

I want to keep my readers informed on my journey through fundraising and the emotional evening of the walk in September.  Please keep me in your prayers as I fund-raise and when I walk in the Light the Night Evening.  Please also keep praying for the scientists working on cures and for the current families going through this hardship.

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!
