Here is our project for today. Scarecrows....they don't have any straw The children did this craft a few years ago. They were both really young so I had to most of the cutting but this time they were able to do it all themselves. Jhet didn't participate in this craft since he isn't feeling good today.

You are probably wondering what this is.... Well, it's a costume for my little sister's rat. She works at Pets Mart and called me a few weeks ago to see if I could make her rat a costume. The employees are having a costume contest with their pets and since most people are brining their cats and dogs she wanted to bring her rat. This wasn't my original plan for the costume but when I went to get the fabric they didn't have the right kind for plan A or plan B. So this is what I came up with. Hopefully I can get some pics of it on the

Very Thankful

I'm just sitting here feeling very grateful for the wonderful life I have. I just had a great (chaotic) dinner with my mom. It so nice that I have an awesome mom who loves me so much. I'm so thankful for the friends in my life. The ones that are there no matter what, no matter how hard things get. I just celebrated 12 wonderful years of marriage with my amazing husband. Which he bought me a mother's ring. I'm so thankful that my baby is growing and thriving despite his disease. I'm so blessed by my two older children who always continue to surprise me with the great little people they are turning into. God is working great things in my life and working on the person he wants me to be. I pray that I continue to listen to him and grow as he wants me too.

Tie Dye Butterflies

This Thursday we made tie dye butterflies using coffee filters for the wings and food coloring for the dye. They also have magnets on the back. All three of the children had fun "painting" the "wings". We had a few extra fuzzy balls that we put on some of the butterflies.

The top two are Mycah's, the middle two are Trin's, and the bottom two are Jhet's. He painted the wings all by himself but I assembled the butterflies for him.

Breaking Free

It has been raining here for the past 3 days. But, today we are breaking out! The kids are going crazy being locked inside and not being able to go outside and play. We had planned a park outing for this week but that didn't happen. So today we are going to our local kids "museum" with our friends. I think the kids are gonna have fun getting out and playing with their friends at this hands on museum.
Jhet hasn't been there since he has been old enough to play so it will be neat to see what he thinks of it all.
We are all also looking forward to craft day tomorrow. We had to change from our original craft because of the rain but we will do it next week. I think we know what we are gonna do. But my sister (who also is doing Project Thursday) and I need to collaborate a little more :)

Trin had planned to cover the whole thing with beans but got tired and went to eat
