The Final installment in the Pinewood Derby saga...

We made another car...

Raced it a few times...

Got second place overall again...

Seth also got his Weblos badge tonight as well. He caught it at the end of the track as it raced down on his car.
Hannah was in charge of the camera since I had to help with the derby. I found some pretty random stuff when I downloaded the pics!

The Toy Society

Back before Christmas, I came across this neat idea for serving others. It is called The Toy Society. I thought it sounded like fun and so I made up some toys, one for each of the kiddies.

This last Monday we decided that it was time to make our toy drops for family home evening. Since we were going to need much energy for our sneaky operation, we started the evening out at Golden Corral with a yummy all you can eat dinner. Pyper decided she wanted to leave her toy there. We dropped her off on the bench as we left. This was the only one we got to check on, and it was gone when we drove back by after making the other drops.

Hannah went next. She dropped her toy off at the Mall in the play area inside of the spilled cup of soda. I hope this little bear found a good, understanding home, he had some SERIOUS ear issues going on!

Seth wanted to take his toy to Borders. I must admit, this rabbit was my very favorite! He turned out so cute, I hope he made someone happy.

Lyra was the last one to drop her toy off. She chose to drop hers in the Lee's in Logan. We ran in and had to be super sneaky while we left it in the seat of a race car cart. There were lots of people around, but luckily we didn't get spotted!

We had so much fun being sneaky and wondering who found our toys. We can't wait to do it again! You should try it too!

She reminds me all the time that she may be a dork, but she's MY dork. I'm so proud!

Crafty little me!

So, a while back I was perusing some craft blogs and found these FABULOUS candle holders. I am so excited with the way they turned out, just like I imagined (and that is sometimes a real feat!) The candles I bought were a little too small, but I was so excited to put them up that they will have to work til I get back to the store for bigger ones. They weren't hard and I feel so crafty now!
