Family Home Evening

Every Monday we have what is called Family Home Evening. It is a night for us to all be together and learn more about our Faith. We usually have a lesson, an activity and then a snack.

Last night we decided to take all our OLD church magazines and have the kids cut out pictures that they liked. The kids did great at finding pictures and did some of the cutting. We were amazed at how well they identified what and who the pictures were of.

It was a fun evening and the kids got to stay up way past bedtime to finish their collage.

Birthday Party Class


I am doing my first birthday party class this Friday. The party is for a 12 yr old and I am sure they are going to have a blast. I wanted to keep the theme very girly and pink and brown are the trendy colours at the moment and so that is what we are doing.

They are each going to do a Card, Notebook and 6x6 layout. Plus I am making them all goodie bags to take home. I am excited to do this class and some of the moms are even getting into the action.

Clay Pot Cooking

So my mom has been hitting the thrift stores and I have been the recipient of her finds. This being one of them, a clay baking dish. So I gave it a go last night. It turned out not too bad. I was amazed at how it kept the juices under the skin of the meat. When I opened the lid there was hardly any liquid in the pot but when i cut into the chicken it all started to come out.

It was very yummy and a different way of cooking. If you get your hands on one give it a shot. You cook for about the same length of time as you would in any other dish.

Adorable



I just had to share. To me photography is art form so here is my adorable little boy. Yes, I took this picture. I just love it. It truly captures him. He is so sweet and dishes out the smiles to almost everyone.

Almost

The saga of getting my scrapbooking room organized continues. I would say I am about 50% DONE. Now starts the DEEP cleaning oh how fun.

I took some before pictures and I will take some After Pictures so you all can see the IMPROVEMENT. I am looking forward to being organized so I can create again. It is hard to create something wonderful in a room that is so disorganized. I will even have room for a friend or 2 to come a scrapbook with me. wink wink.

I think I am going to have to start parting with some of my stamp sets. I just have too many. That is ok though I have some that I just don't use anymore and might not ever use again so if someone else can use it then great. If you would like to see what I am selling off just give me your email address, and I will send you the list, when I am ready, as to what is for sale.
