OOOOH....look what we did the other day. The Dainko and Dobson kiddos came over and we made candles. It was a project we found in the Family Fun magazine. You melt some wax, throw in a crayon for color and crush some ice. You pour the wax over the crushed ice and when it melts it makes this lava rock thing...very neat and the kids enjoyed it. I didn't have my camera available so check out Colleeno's Blog for more pictures (thanks Colleen for being a good mom and bringing your camera! -- it's always good to have proof for the children that I did do fun things with them) -- and aside here, we bought a fixer upper and these rooms haven't been fixed up yet...thus the avocado green wall with the framed red silk glued to it --- don't ask, I have NO IDEA what the previous owners were thinking...

Oh and what a segue...my favorite new website--rate my space on HGTV.....I guess it's not my new favorite website, it's a new section of an old favorite. A friend turned me on to it and now I'm hooked.

Jason's been working on the bathroom, finally got the electrical all hooked up to the breaker box and it's not working...he says it's an easy fix....we'll see. This DIY project is a lot more involved then I thought it would be.

Other than that, not much new...2008 has so far been uneventful.

Looks like fun! I must say I admire your bravery for taking on this project with that many kids! ;)

You are a far kinder mom than I. The craftiest we got over the break was making tons of spin art with my extra cardstock.

Though I just remembered that I did take all 3 kids to a church function yesterday morning, one to a birthday party yesterday afternoon and bring over an extra kid for a playdate later in the same afternoon. I guess I'm okay after all.

I finally added some pages to my blog if you want to take a peek.

Denise, hoping you see this since hotmail's giving you guff

It looks like the kids really had fun. Enjoy this age. Soon will come the age when doing anything like that or being seen with you will be not cool. As for that wall...I think they were going for a Piassoish look.
