My Family

My 11 year old loves to read science books (lol she did NOT get that from me) she begs me to do science experiments almost everyday. In an effort to support her love of learning  I give her access to the supplies she needs (unless it to blow something up…lol).  It is amazing how excited she is about these simple experiments.

For example how much salt does it take to get an egg to float in water. Salt makes the water denser, so things that are  less dense than the salt water will float.  Start with a glass of water, and egg and table salt.  Add one tablespoon of salt in at a time and see how much it takes to make the egg float.

Since she is almost done with her current experiment book I was looking for another one to keep her busy once school is out this summer. I thought I would share them with you as well… or see if you have any to recommend.

snotty girlMost our family has a yucky cold, in a one year old with long hair that means snot crusted to her face with hairs stuck like cement… This little gal just got “de-boogered” in the bath and we are hoping these braids can keep the hair out of the war zone for at least a few hours.

bologna

Just a little peek at our lives playing out on social media this weekend…

My husband comes home all excited to try a new recipe for dinner tomorrow. Marinated and grilled Bologna steaks, topped with homemade coleslaw. He even had 1 inch steaks cut from the deli at Albertsons …. Ummmmm if I’m going to come home with $16 in meat I can guarantee you it ain’t going to be Bologna. I found this both irritating and hilarious all at the same time. Yet another reason I love my quirky guy I get to call my husband, he keeps life interesting. #grossrecipes #weresthebeef#wholooksupbolognarecipes#whyguysshouldnotusepinterest #family

bolognaJust in case any of you wanted to know how the Bologna steak sandwich turned out (yes the $16 mistake in my mind lol). I Made sure to have lots of sides in an effort to try and save my kids in case it was disgusting, that way there was something to eat. BUT we ended up not needing them.  Shocking they where actually kinda good ( and I don’t even like Bologna) the marinade was good and the BBQ made the edges nice and crisp. We did cut the 1 inch in half so it was only 1/2 inch instead…… I don’t plan to put it on our regular menu, but it was better than I expected. 3 of my kids asked for 2nds. After they got brave enough to taste it the first time.

If you do not already follow us on Instagram we would love to have you, and share in the Moments We Want To Remember each week!Grandma Callahans vintage dressI went to a Halloween party yesterday in my Grandma Callahan’s vintage clothes. She passed away two years ago, I miss her dearly. She had lots of cute clothes from her younger years which some of my cousins inherited. This double knit outfit was in a pile that no one wanted, my Mom thought maybe she would turn some of her old clothes into a quilt instead of donating them to DI. I was pregnant and it didn’t fit and I even thought it was a tad ugly… Yet it was a piece of my Grandma’s history… Her story. So I took it home with me.
I had bought this hat and another dress at a vintage sale and planned to wear it today.. But out of the blue remembered my Grandma’s dress so I tried it on… IT FIT. I got all emotional, so strange to be wearing her clothes. I wonder what she did or saw in this dress? Wish I could ask her.
So today I went dressed as my cute hip Grandma… I am so glad I saved this dress. I’m rather fond of it now… Heck I might even wear it to church. Love you Grandma thanks for being such a huge part of my life!
