Prayer Family of the Day

We started one of our FAVORITE things again today. We keep our Christmas cards and randomly pic one a day for whom to pray. It was awesome last year. (We did them in alphabetical order last year but my husband wants it to be random this time. My OCD is having issues with this.) God worked in such wonderful ways last year. I can't wait to see how He works this year!!!

Lego Time

My boys saved their money to go to the Lego store.
D got this and spent 5 plus hours working on getting it together. He is 6 and the box says 8-12. He (and I) are soooo proud

B got this and spent about 3 hours putting it together (equally proud). He is 4 and his box says 7-12.

Not to be leftout I also made a little purchase of Friends Legos:

DIY bouncy balls

well, this is how it ended up:

not really bouncy or balls but fun to play with and throw on the floor and watch splatter.  All in all I would consider this a pinterest FAIL!

Favorite Book

The Wuggie Norple Story was my husband's
book as a child.
His elementary school librarian knew this and she thought he should have it (20 years later) HOW SWEET AND THOUGHTFUL!!!!
So we have the Wuggie Norple and this is the first time he's read it to both boys that they are listening.  THEY LOVE IT TOO!
How could you not.
If you can find one, I highly recommend it!!!!!

Red Roses

I participated in a Bowl-a-thon to raise money for Junior Achievement.
We were Pirates, Salty Sailors really.
I decided we need to have some red roses to go with our attire.
I was inspired by this Felt Flower Tutorial
So I purchased an XL red shirt and started cutting.
I made about 8 red flowers and then had to make some purple ones too out of an old shirt that was no longer useable.

Yogurt Making

Here are some picture instructions for how to make yogurt!
I've been making it for over a year and LOVE it.
It's easy and SO much cheaper!
I make a half gallon at a time.
Use 2% organic milk.

I have this YoGourmet machine from Amazon.
This thermometer.
This "thermometer holder"
This whisk.

also not pictured, but if you enjoy Greek yogurt, try this Greek Yogurt Strainer:

Closet and Hangers

I saw on Pinterest to turn your hangers backwards at the beginning of the year.
If at the end of the year you still have items turned backwards it's time for those to
MOVE ON to a better home.  LOVE this idea.  So I did!
