About Me

My photo
Mysteries, polka dots, California Rolls, TJ Maxx, cozy blankets, rainy days and getting the first spoonful of peanut butter out of the jar make me smile. Spiders, rude people, cold fingers and toes, baby leashes, people that don't wrap their packages before going to the Post Office, poison ivy and Math (pretty much all of it) make me want to scream. My perfect day would be spent with my wonderful husband and sweet girls- watching movies in our jammies! Of course, having the movie theater to ourselves would be great, too. Please pass the popcorn and M&M's.:) I am saved by the grace of God. He is my constant companion and hears my every prayer. What a blessing! I'd love to hear from you!

Tasty Science

   It's amazing all the cool things they have for kids these days!  Mandy got a kit called "Tasty Science" from the toy store the other day.  It's cooking and science in a box.  The girls decided to do an experiment on why cupcakes rise.  Do you know why cupcakes rise?  Well, I am going to tell you.  A chemical reaction takes place when an acid (vinegar) and a base (baking soda) are combined and this causes carbon dioxide bubbles to form.  The bubbles cause the cupcakes to rise. Now, don't you feel smarter?  I know the girls and I did!  Plus, the cupcakes were tasty.:-)

I love science projects that you can eat... But then again...I like anything that has food in it!
AND I love Mandy's shirt!
Have a great weekend... We are doing a big mountain hike tomorrow-Yikes!

We love science experiments, too. This year at VBS one of the "stations" was science experiments. One day they blew up a balloon with baking soda and vinegar which was Anna's favorite experiment.
