I have recently stumbled across the plethora of blogs in cyberpace and am completely obsessed. Everyone is doing it and there are lots that have some really fun ideas to be found.

I have been visiting the Crafty Crow a lot. We decided to try an easy project listed there and see what happened . Boy, Did Cassi and Cali LuuuuV it! The girls made balloon balls. These are very much like those little stress balls you find out and about for about $6.00. These were waaayyyy cheaper! We tried many with flour and a couple with rice. The directions are here if you have the desire.

As you can see, it can quickly become rather dusty but in our case that made it all the more fun.
We used balloons that seemed a little larger than the normal ones; it might have worked better with the normal size ones but who knows? Also, we seemed to keep getting an air bubble at the bottom but we worked at them the best we could and they turned out fairly well. Anyway, hope you enjoy our fun.

Scott's Early Father's Day present

I thought Scott might be missing us while working in Nowatak, AK. ( We are certainly missing him!)

We made this for him yesterday. The girls chose the photos and music. This is an attempt at something new for me. I hope it works and you can view it!

A break for some SUMMER FUN

Here is what the kids spent the last hour getting together. Before tumbling practice and the soccer game that will follow that.
Hope your summer is filled with sparklers, glitter, skipping and tons of FUN!

Here is a still photo since you probably couldn't see the faces so well. Cierra is in front, then Cori, Alli and Cali, and Cassi with Booger.

It's a little blurry but you get the idea. I will take both cameras out next time. I need to get a digital video recorder; it will make posting videos so much easier. Then you'll be having fun!
Love you bunches!
