making volcanos

ahhhhh pinterest. my {and im sure most of you} new love! if you are anything like me you spend a LOT of time pinning and not a lot of time doing. so this past week i went back through a lot of my boards that had to do with my kids and deleted a lot of pins. then i actually clicked on the rest of them and went to the site to see if i wanted to do any of the pinned things! imagine that. :) one of the things that i pinned forever ago was this one about making mini volcanoes.

so we got all the stuff {baking soda, vinegar and food coloring!} and started playing!

 look at that sweet face, she loved it!

peanut butter

the blessing of friends

so a few weeks back a bunch of amazing friends and our awesome family came over and helped clean my mom and dads house. a few weeks before the big day, i was cleaning under the sink and i felt the Lord speak to me and tell me that it was time to ask for help. for those of you who dont know,my mom is really sick. she has stage 4 breast cancer that has metastasized to her bones. my dad is her primary care taker. i wanted to give them a sense of peace in their home and freedom to just be and spend time together rather than always be stressed out and worried about the house. my mom has a hard time just getting around and taking care of herself so i didnt want her to have to worry about the house! here are some awesome before and after pics! more of the basement to come! thanks again to everyone who helped makes this project a reality!
