Happy Tuesday friends! I just delivered a fun cake for a little boy’s birthday party tonight. I thought I would share since it seems to be a pretty popular theme for boys lately. It is a Minecraft Cake and cupcakes. Although I have to admit ignorance here, until I was asked to make this cake I had no idea what Minecraft was and had to do research first :).

For the last few weeks in science my kids have been learning about our Solar System. We have studied the Sun, Moon, stars, planets, and other bodies in the Solar System. It has been a lot of fun teaching and seeing them get so excited about our Solar System! I was trying to come up with a fun craft project while we were studying stars and I was in the middle of brainstorming how to get my kids to brush their teeth long enough. I put both things together and came up with this…
Now that it is fall I have lots of great activities I cannot wait to do with my kiddos! One we did last week was a blast and the kids played with it for almost an hour. I have let the kids play in shaving cream on our dinning room table before since it is fun to write in and just a fluffy sensory experience. This time though I wanted to give it a fall twist and tried a few new things.

A few nights ago we came home at dusk and the lightning bugs were out. Our oldest of course initiated a lightning bug hunt :). We keep some ball jars just for this and in the spirit of the end of summer I thought I would share. Read the rest of this entry
This year we were traveling all around my daughter Bella’s birthday in July. By the time we slowed down enough to have a real party it was almost her older sister’s birthday. So after talking to the girls, they were fine combining their parties into one. They were not budging on a combined theme though. So we threw a half My Little Pony and half Doc McStuffins party!
Our summer has been packed with travel, camps, conferences, and more! Youth ministry is in full swing each summer and we love it, even the traveling 5 weeks in a row and being crazy busy for 7 weeks straight. I haven’t had a chance to sit and blog in too long, but now I am back. We are settling in to our school year and getting back into a normal schedule again (insert happy dance here ). So, I have several posts to catch up on from the summer. The first I want to share is one about how I pack my kids for all of this traveling. Read the rest of this entry
We LOVE VBS! This week our church and a few others are having our annual VBS program each night. My kids love it, I love helping out and I am so proud of my husband for all of the hard work he does to make it happen. Last night was our VBS kickoff and the girls could hardly wait, so I decided to let them make some fun “I love VBS” shirts to pass the time until the kickoff. Read the rest of this entry
