Let's Read Together!

I may have sent you all a link on Facebook for this already, but I feel it necessary to post it here for you just in case. (sorry its a few days late)

We are going to read the Book of Mormon by New Years!

I'm so excited! I must admit, I've never read the whole Book of Mormon all the way straight through. How sad is that?!

So when this little challenge was sent to me I jumped at the chance! I guess I figure why not now?! I've started reading each day and I'm doing my best to stick with it. I don't actually own a set of scriptures right now. (even sadder, I know!) So I've been borrowing my sisters or I have the app on my phone and I've been reading from there. Well, that's working but I wish that I could mark everything....luckily, i'm taking a little trip to Utah this weekend where I will buy my very own set of scriptures! yay!

I hope you'll join me on this scriptural adventure! And please if you want to make this a discussion below in the comments...by all means! Who knows, maybe you all will teach me something(s) awesome!!!!

This is the schedule we are going by. Its only been a few days so i'm sure all you smarties can catch up!

Happy reading!


Super Crafty!

This weekend my step-mom had to leave town and I was left in charge of the four younger kids. Emma is twelve. Alex is 6. Jared is 5, and Eric will be 3 this month. Aye-aye-aye!!!! They all have so much energy! I knew that I would have to come up with something awesome to do to keep them occupied.

Well, I've seen these all overPinterest, I've Stumbled over it a few times and even seen it on some Blogs and to tell you the truth, I just couldn't help myself!

We started with a box of 64 crayons. Took out all the blacks and browns and used another smaller box so I had more of the good colors.

Then we hot glued the crayons to the top of the canvas. Looks good so far huh?!

After that we all took turns with the blowdryer.

After just a little while with the blowdryer the wax starts to get real shiny and then .......



The kids had such a great time! And they behaved! ...for the most part anyway.

Happy Crafting!
