Pinterest Craft of the week

Here is the Youth's new prayer bucket.

And here is a list of prayers I would like to add to the bucket:

1. direction for my family
2. direction for our church
3. for my brother to grow in his relationship with Christ
4. for my children to start sleeping in their own beds
5. that my heart be open to change and willing to forgive

I might have a slight pinterest addiction.  Ryan told me that since I was staying home, I should attempt to do at least one thing from Pinterest a week.  ( I really think he just wants to see some kind of payoff for all the hours I spend pinning things)

Well this week I tried my first craft.... Ryan had these old Coke and Dr. Pepper bottle crates that he kept from the home he grew up in.  They have been sitting in our garage for 6 year now, and I haven't quite known what to do with them, but they were too cool to get rid of.  Well, the other day after searching for the umpteenth time for one of Kai's lego men, I found the perfect solution.  I used the old crates for display cases in the boys toys.

Andrew used his for all of his superheros and cars and we used Kai's for Lego men.

Here is Andrew trying to decide which Lego man to steal while Kai is off at school.

I really did not see this on Pinterst, it just looks like something you might see on there, so I am counting it.

I will start my official Pinterest crafts next week.

Future Ms. Texas

Malia got a big bag of clothes delivered to her from her older cousins this week, so she took the opportunity to practice for her future in  beauty pageants.

Here she  is in her formal wear.

Now she is ready for the swim suit competition.

And you can't forget the talent portion.

Thanks for the clothes Ella and Sarah!!!!

A new start

School started, and for the first time in seven years, I did not start with it.  I am officially a stay at home mom and this is how we spent our week:

Playing dress up,

Playing trains,



going on walks,

And of course, sleeping in!
