Ian's Industrial Letters

This is a quick and easy project that we added to Ian's room.  I wanted letters that resembled metal and had an industrial look to them.  

I started with some letters from Michaels and used some decorative nails from JoAnn's.

The nails were added at the corners and then I sprayed them with a white primer so the spray paint would stick well.

I chose a bright orange in high gloss to give the metal look.  

Ian's room is slowly coming along, one project at a time!

Lemonade Stand

Breanna's good friend (and neighbor) wanted to set up a lemonade stand this weekend.  We made some homemade lemonade, my neighbor made chocolate cookies & the girls made the sign.  They were so cute helping our many customers!  The stand was a great success and the girls are going to give the money to our VBS missionaries for audio Bibles.

So silly these two!  Glad they are such good friends, like their Mommies!

Little bro got to help (eat cookies and drink lemonade) 

We always have plenty of lemons thanks to Craig's parents!  Here's a yummy recipe:

Fresh Squeezed Lemonade

1 cup fresh lemon juice
1 1/4 cup sugar
5 2/3 cup water

Mix sugar with 2/3 cup water in sauce pan, bring to boil until clear.    
Allow to cool completely.  Add lemon juice and remaining 5 cups water.  Enjoy!

Summer Fun

We have embraced the heat in Bako.  The kids could spend all day outside, just having a blast with the little kiddy pool and water hose.  My favorite part is all the giggles & squeals!

 Bre likes to have races back and forth across the yard.  She is quite speedy.
I see a cross-country runner in our future.

Silly dancing

Lots of swinging.
Bre always shouts "Best day EVER!" as she is swinging (from Tangled, of course).

And this is what entertains Ian for HOURS!
Such a silly little guy!
