Meet the Family

Take a moment to get to know us.  
I married my best friend in 2006 on a June day.  

Ecclesiastes 4:9-12 Two are better than one, because they have a good reward for their toil. For if they fall, one will lift up his fellow. But woe to him who is alone when he falls and has not another to lift him up! Again, if two lie together, they keep warm, but how can one keep warm alone? And though a man might prevail against one who is alone, two will withstand him—a threefold cord is not quickly broken.

2015 is here already!   I had not updated the "Meet the Family" section in over 2 years! This blog sure has changed since I started it in 2011.  I do wish I had more time to poor into this blog but at this time I have limited time and I apologize for all my typos! Since the start of my blog we relocated from Wisconsin to Iowa and I went from a stay at home mom to a working mom.   I am a special education teacher so I do still get lots of time with my babies which I treasure.    

1 John 3:18 

Dear children, let us not love with words or 

tongue but with actions and in truth. (NIV)

We welcomed our first blessing in September 2007, Selah came 4 weeks early but she was the best surprise.  We were not planning on getting pregnant so early in our marriage but God knows what is best!  She sure added a ton of joy to this family.  

Selah 3 months old

Selah 9 months old. 

Selah is now 7 years old and enjoys school, being a big sister, singing, and all things girly!   She joined girl scouts this year and still is a leader in our children's program at church.   

Psalms 127:3 

Children are a gift from the Lord; they are a 

reward from him. (NLT)

Titus couple weeks old

Titus loves his pacifiers. Titus is almost 1 and he loves his family, balls, and his blue polk a dot blankie.  

Titus is a wired almost 4 year old boy!   He brings a sense of humor with him where ever he goes.   He is all about super heroes and fighting but he still needs his mama cuddle time.   

Matthew 19:14 

But Jesus said, "Let the children come to me. 

Don’t stop them! For the Kingdom of Heaven 

belongs to those who are like these children." 

My blog is covered with more family pictures so stay awhile and look around.  Also, my blog is full of life stories, craft ideas, christian messages, encouragement, reviews and giveaways, and PRAISE and LOVE!  
    Psalm 107:1 
    "Give thanks to the LORD, for he is good; his love endures forever."

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!
