Day 25: 31 Days of Pinterest: Marshmallow Shooters

I must admit I've been procrastinating somewhat on this one.  I was very excited for the end product, but not at all looking forward to the execution, as I wasn't sure how it would be.  I'm here to tell you this was CHEAP and EASY!!!

Marshmallow Shooters

1 10 foot section of 1/2 inch PVC pipe (will make up to 5 shooters)
2 elbow PVC connectors, 1 "T" connector, and 1 end cap for each shooter you want to make
small saw
ruler/measuring tape
(I did NOT use the Tacky Glue, but you COULD)

The original blog that posted making these did not give out measurements/directions which is why I think I was nervous about it.  But I eyeballed their photos and came up with my own measurements and they worked out GREAT!!

You'll need:
1 - 3inch cut (the up / down piece that is NOT the handle)
1 - 8inch cut
3 - 4inch cuts

They cut SUPER easily!  There is some mess, so be careful where you cut.  The ends will be somewhat jagged which doesn't matter except for the two exposed ends.  I'm going to sand these when we get back home, as well as spray paint them.

Then it was time for the testors!  And did they ever have a ball!  Liam was napping, but Braeden and Olivia LOVED it!

Original post HERE.

I tried and tried to get a picture of one shooting out... to no avail!  Better luck next time!  This was a GREAT pin!

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
