Happy 7th Birthday Darling!

We are still waiting to have the birthday celebration with her friends but let's be honest this little girl has had a blessed birthday week.   First she woke up to one of the best sunrises I have ever seen:

After admiring the sunrise as a family the birthday girl went with daddy and picked out some breakfast donuts!  :)  We lit the candles and sang the Birthday tune!   (oh I should also add that her door was decorated with yarn so when she woke up and opened the door it was a surprise!)

The birthday girl went to school with birthday Popsicle treats to share with her class.  More surprises were in store once she got home!   My kids know birthday's means ice cream... not like we don't eat that like every week but either way if someone is celebrating their birthday hands down we are eating ice cream.   What my daughter did not know what that our local, family owned ice cream place would have her name on their sign!   Not only was her name on the sign but she got to make her own ice cream cone!  Small town perks are really awesome!  

Now we are just waiting for her birthday party coming up at the local roller skating rink!  :) 

Dear Selah,
You are precious in God's eyes but also in dad and I's eyes.   You have a huge God calling on your life and your dad and I are constantly praying for God to help us call our all the glory and goodness that he has already given and gifted you with.  You are an ambassador of Christ and I will always remind you of that! You are a doer of the Word and blessed in your actions. James 1:22, 25   I am amazed at how fast you are growing up!   

Right now you love to read and are getting very good at it and writing!   You are very creative in your own publishing!   You my sweet 7 year old are an author already!  Maybe it is time for me to help you create your own blog!  :) 

If there is one thing I want you to know at 7 years old is... Enjoy being 7!   Mom and dad are always trying to protect you and allow you to have a fun and stress free childhood.   Play, imagine, run, jump, create-  you my daughter my sweet 7 year old daughter stay young, stay sweet, and be you!

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!
