Craft Night

We worked on crafts tonight! Woo Hoo! Well, it was a cheesy, easy craft. :) But, they had fun and that's what counts! I had these at school for my class and was impressed with how easy they were and how much the kids enjoyed it. I have been extremely neglectful at doing many crafts with the kids and really need to work on this more, especially during the summers. We attempted gingerbread houses at Christmastime, and even though it didn't really work, they had fun using frosting and candies to decorate big gingerbread cookies! :)
You just gotta love the peel and stick foam things! :) I have some "big" ideas for crafts to come. I'm going to try to do at least one every month, but am hoping to do two or three a month??? We'll see... So here's our first attempt at a real craft time... :)

Check out Big Lots for some great deals!

We are SO excited to do crafts at home!!!

I'm deep in concentration...

And for the final touch, a little bling glued on top!
We will be sending these to some special family members for mother's day... But I figure they'll still be happy to get them even after seeing it on the blog! :)

What you should know about HIV

-HIV can NOT be spread through casual/household contact. HIV is not spread through hugging, kissing, shaking hands, sharing toys, sneezing, coughing, sharing food, sharing drinks, bathing, swimming or any other casual way. It has been proven that HIV and AIDS can only be spread through sexual contact, birth, breastfeeding and blood to blood contact (such as sharing needles). - HIV is now considered a chronic but manageable disease. With treatment, people who are HIV+ can live indefinitely without developing AIDS and can live long and full lives. - People who are HIV+ deserve to be treated with love, respect, support and acceptance as all people do. Additional information on transmission of HIV can be found on the Center for Disease Control website:

Little Did I Know

Little did I know that the road would be so rocky
Little did I know that the trip would take so long
Little did I know that my heart could hurt so much
Little did I know that God is never wrong

Little did I know that love could be so powerful
Little did I know that a dream so far could go
Little did I know that God would place the right ones
Little did I know that my heart, so large, could grow

Little did I know that a dream has it’s own timing
Little did I know that this day would finally come
Little did I know that four souls would be sent to guide me
Little did I know that they would choose to call me mom

But God knew all along and He had a plan to follow
God knew all along that my dream would soon come true
God knew all along that we five should be together
God knew all along that I’d share it all with you
