Christmas 2018

Happy Birthday Jesus 2018!  



I apologize for my long silence on my blog!   Christmas time gets busy and you know the drill!  So here I am to catch ya up!  

We had our usual Happy Birthday Cake at church the Sunday before Christmas!   As well as watching the kids perform a couple songs and a short skit.  They did great!   

One of our family traditions is pancakes so this year I made a butter pecan pancake.  Not my kids favorites but it was still very tasty!  





Christmas Eve service was fun as I always enjoy singing songs in the candlelight.  I was in the sound booth but still enjoyed my candle!   



I love how our church looks at Christmas time and every year we take a picture by the trees!   I could just sit and relax in there with the glow of the lights.   After we did our family Christmas here in Iowa we headed to Minnesota and Wisconsin to see family.   One tip... driving on Christmas is hard as nothing is open so eating gas station food is not the best idea!   Should have packed sandwiches and snacks!  It was a quick trip and made us realize we needed to have more time in the summer to enjoy family!  

Hope you all had a wonderful time celebrating the best time of year and the best gift ever, JESUS!

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!
