I went to my grandson's baseball game and all the ladies had the cutest shirts on so I decided I wanted one too.
So I cut some iron on letters and applied them to a baseball shirt.
I saw a young girl reading my shirt and it took her a minute to understand, hit (the ball) and steal (the base), that's the look I wanna see!!

Easter Candle Holder

The Easter candle holder from Church is brass and was looking pretty bad. I tried a few different cleaners but I had no luck and the Priest was getting pretty frustrated with the looks of it. I finally decided to spray paint an old piece of metal and see how it turned out. My hubby sprayed the metal for me with some Krylon Gold paint and it looked awesome, so I asked Father if he would want me to paint it and he said yes. I brought the holder home and I knew I had to clean it first. I got some Scotchbrite and scrubbed it and it came clean and it looked almost brand new. So I decided just to put some car wax on it to keep it from tarnishing and I took it to Church. Father was very happy with the way it looked and so was I, I just hope the car wax helps it retain the brass look longer, well at least for a year.

Passover with 6th Graders

We were discussing Moses life and the plagues that were brought down upon Egypt. One of the activities was to imitate a Passover meal, so I whipped up a batch of unleavened bread, the kids said it tasted like a tortilla but mine had a bit of honey in them so they were slightly sweetened. We also had apples with a sprinkling of cinnamon on them. We pretended to be dressed for travel, hats, coats and we sat on the edge of our chair. We had unleavened bread because it is faster to make than regular bread. We would have killed a lamb, cooked it and put some of its blood on the door way. Then the youngest child would ask, what are we preparing for, the Father of the house would then tell the story of the Passover. This was fun and I hope the kids liked it.

Cora Belle's Scrapbook

This is Cora Belle's baby scrapbook.
Her mother asked for a vintage look, so I looked on the internet and came up with these vintage little girls. It starts with the January page, February, March and so on. The last page is December and that is their dog Fender on the page. There were so many vintage little girls it was hard to pick just one per page.

Broccoli Cheese Baked Potatoes

I was watching Pioneer Woman on the Food channel and she made this delicious looking baked potato. I made some changes to the recipe, I added crumbled bacon and cooked some minced onion in the bacon juices. IT WAS SO GOOD! 
If it looks like too much work just use Velvetta cheese, steamed broccoli and microwaved potatoes.
This is a good way to get vegy's in the kids food without actually tasting the vegetables.
