Science Experiment & explaination

This was our craft project/science experiment for the day on Thursday.

We got the recipie out of this book...
Better Homes and Gardens Make Believe (Fun-to-Do Project Books)
We liked it so much we ordered it from Paperback Swap

By the way, Paperback Swap is an awesome, awesome book swapping site for those who LOVE to read. You should check it out!

1 package of Kool-Aid
1/2 Cup Sugar
1/2 Cup Cold Water
Vanilla Ice Cream
1 Liter of carbonated lemon lime beverage

Mix the Kool-Aid, Water, and Sugar in a pitcher. Then mix in the lemon lime beverage
Put the ice cream in your cups and pour the mixture over the ice cream.

P.S. I used my own words. I know the measurements are right but I don't have the book's instructions right here in front of me.


So, you probably want to know what's up with all the watermarks, huh? These pics aren't even that good, right? Well, you're right, but I came across some interesting information recently. I can seem to recall the link at the moment, but because we live in a disturbing world, there are people out there who steal pictures (and not just professional pictures) and put them on other sites. Recently I ran across a website who had her daughter's picture stolen and put up as an Orkut profile. So, really, it is for the safety of my girls that I watermark them. I hope everyone understands.

It's the new year

I have been taking pictures, but not posting them. LOL! So, this is just going to be a spattering of things we've been up to over the last 6 months or so.

Lilly was playing in the water in the sink. She loves to make bubbles.

The girls making patterns

This one is from Marti's birthday party (in July). We went to Bounceland.

Summer fun with bubbles

Meeting long awaited cousin Jabari (in July)

We did the Diet Coke & Mentos experiment

This is the girls washing the kitchen floor. I did not ask them to do this. They offered.

The girls playing in flour

Lilly making a plate person

Lilly being a rubber band princess

Lilly making berry pie this past summer. The berries, however, made her hands itch. Uh-oh! Not too bad though. She was fine after she washed up.

Marti bike riding. She learned to ride without training wheels this past summer.

The girls flying kites

One day, the girls wouldn't eat dinner with us. It was no big deal really. But Rog and I (since we thought we were going to be eating alone) lit up some candles and the girls joined us. It was pretty cool.

Marti in her fairy princess halloween costume.

Marti took a make up class in October. Our friend Nicole was her teacher.

Lilly didn't want pics in her halloween costume. She dressed up in other stuff and let me snap away.

Lilly and her BFF at Lilly's birthday party

And a photoshoot with one of her presents from her birthday

This was cool. Rog and I were doing dishes. The girls thought it was cool that the yellow bowl turned the water yellow and the blue turned the water blue.

In this picture Lilly tore up a load of kleenexes to cover up snowflake because "he was cold"

The girls LOVE to play this game, Mastermind

And finally, a picture of Marti, Lilly and her cousins Izik and Tommy.

We had more "professional" type shoots in the last 6 months that you can see at, if you wish.
