Duck Tape Mania

The duck tape craze has hit our house.  Shianne is making all sorts of creations.  I have had my fun as well.  The majority of the pictures are her creations.  The orange and zebra flowers are mine.  Definitely an activity that will be continuing at our house.

Keep God on Top

Another awesome night and lesson for my girls at the BLAST.  They each came home with a bottle to remind them to Keep God on Top.  I just had to share it.  Life can shake you up but God should always be on top!

A New Start

Well, the last month has been a whirlwind adventure that I swore would never happen to me, but once again God laughs at me when I say never.  We have now made the official move to York, NE, even though I thought I was a lifer in Colby.  There has been so many amazing "God Things" that happened along the way and I wanted to share those with you.  With the loss of a job, we decided to take a leap of faith and listed the house to try to sell in a few months to make the move to York, it sold in 4 days!  Aahh, and the buyers wanted in by August 25th.  We accepted the offer and got moving towards starting over.  A realtor showed us houses, lots of them but nothing jumped out then at the end of the day told us she happened to have an apartment up for rent and willing to rent month by month, we accepted it without even seeing it, and I love it! We prayed for a job and Brad got offered a  job as a Crop Consultant with United Farmers Coop., which he had just stopped by and dropped of a resume when we were up looking at houses!  We had tons of help packing the house and loading the uhaul.  We were very worried about what we were going to do once we got up here with unloading it, and a guy that used to buy equipment from Brad called a former pastor that was here for the summer and they lined up 5 guys and 2 ladies to welcome us to York.  The girls started school on Monday and they are so incredibly happy and loving it.  Both have made lots of new friends and are adjusting great.  Remember that in every step of the process, God will take care of the little things.  You just have to watch for all the "God moments" in life!

Water Balloon Bouncy Balls

This is for you Courtney, she has requested that I give you a tutorial of how to make these water balloon bouncy balls.  It is a very quick fun activity to do with your kids or for your kids! 

First you will need water balloons and a pair of scissors.

Put a small amount of water in a balloon.

Cut each balloon apart.

Pull the cut balloon over the balloon with water in it.  Keep layering until you have the size you want.

Super Bouncy and Super Fun!

Lamp Redo

Shianne and I came up with a project from her garage sale find.  She bought this lamp, I forgot the before picture sorry, and it was silver with the white shades.  It was pretty loose and kept falling over, so with a little love and just tightening things up, plus a can of very bright pink paint, she is a very happy girl!  Although her dad might not be as impressed with the pink driveway and bottom of the basketball hoop.  The wind caught it a little more than we thought.  Oh well, it was lots of fun!
