Today was date night and I took Cadon to see the Smurfs at the dollar movie theater. We had so much fun but it had me thinking about the last time I had a date with Ryan and I thought NEVER when I have him because Brandon takes Cadon on a date he usually falls asleep and naps for the entire time they are gone or is not into the park which is odd but he doesn't want to do fun things without his brother and he is horrible in movie theaters so next month I think I might plan a big night out just him and I maybe dinner together and some ice cream after then cartoonies in bed =) what do you think? Brandon and I love to take our kids one on one and spend quality time with them and let them know how special they both are....you have to enjoy the little moments in life and even though money does not grow on trees and is foreign in our house our kids appreciate the time spent playing at the park,chasing duckies,skipping rocks,making bubble snakes,playing with playdo,painting outside with mommy and our kids are our everything we love them so much. If you have not taken your kids on mommy daddy dates lately you should it is truly rewarding seeing your children get excited to get one on one time with you!

Today was a VERY long day...last night I had a headache all night and could NOT fall asleep I had this racing in my heart like when your about to give a speech or hit someone then with my everyday fibro pain my body hurts ten times as bad at night. I woke up a few hours later with the same headache and then got the kids ready around 8am because we had to head to Meridian and get them some flu shots =(. I had some boys winter clothes from when the boys were babies and I took them to Kids Again to trade them in to get the boys some pants for winter. My boys have always owned only two pairs of shoes max and three pants max. so they were in NEED of some weather appropriate clothing. My trade in was not much at all but I was able to get my boys both a pair of pants and a little "after shot treat". We headed to rent Captain America and headed home. So today was our family movie day! But before the night ended I decided to do a little fun craft with them!!!!!!!!! I took some washed spaghetti sauce jars and filled them with glow sticks I had to tape the tops so they couldn't get them opened but then they got to shake them up and use them as night lights ALL night =) They are tucked in their beds and ready to get some sleep. Tomorrow we are going to the pumpkin patch.

I saw this ring on Pintrest that was a wire ring but in the shape of a heart it was simple and elegant yet beautiful and I thought hmm I wanted to make a ring myself I did not make the heart ring because I dont have the tools or the jewelry wire....here I go again making things with stuff I already have and I thought I have PICTURE MOUNTING WIRE!!!!!!! not the same but I thought I would give it a try. I had this OLD necklace with metal circles and it just so happens one was my ring size so I clipped it and grabbed a pearl I LOVE and with my hands I wrapped it around and around till I had this wire nest effect and then tied it around the ring and VOILA!!!!!!!!!! It came out beautiful and people would pay so much for this but you can make it yourself with things you have for FREE And for those who need a tutorial I can't help ya it is way to hard to wrap wire that small and take pictures but let your imagination take over and i'm sure it will come out beautiful

Yesterday was a very big day for us in the Lurcook home! Every year we have a family tradition of going apple picking and then getting ice cream at arctic circle after. We left around 2:30 pm and headed to a orchard we had not been to. The orchard we always go to was closed on saturdays which was a bummer but when you have your family its more like an adventure and I LOVE apple picking every year. The first orchard seemed to be fresh out of all apples =( so we took off to find another one and found one tucked in the middle of no where that actually used the honor system and you pay the "cow" which was a little mailbox cow you put the money in. We ended up getting some yummy apples and even plums!! Here is the picture of our little family yesterday:

Well I was going for the three like in the picture I found online but I cut my finger open with an EXACTO knife =( I have cut myself about three times this week and the hubby took about 10 min to help me out and snatched it out of my hands and cut me off hahaha OH OH and the last one that I cut myself trying to make actually broke and made a huge mess so two is what I will stick with and I am not doing any more I love it and they are so cute but I will stick with crafts that dont need a knife to make ;) I hope you like how they came out it is even more beautiful in person I love the navy blue and white pom poms with the black and white faded frame!

I covered washed out bean cans with Popsicle sticks and put some ribbon on it and it cost me nothing to make since I think every mom has bought or has Popsicle sticks in their home ;) I plan on putting toothbrushes and my bathroom stuff in them I had glass cups but they just require way to much maintenence and these are just perfect I love how they came out.

I was glueing my necklace together and decided to make a cookie stand real quick and it looks SO CUTE for only two dollars how can ya go wrong....my husband hates the two tones of the glass stand and the chrome plate so tomorrow I will be spray painting it but I think it looks cute the way it is. All you need is a Dollar Store near by a candlestick,pie pan and, some glue then your all done put some cookies and enjoy!

Today my mother in law asked me if I would come over so she could teach me how to sew and I was SO EXCITED! Once she got the machine out I was so intimidated I froze up and pretty much did not want to do the sewing I thought I wanted to do =( I guess I will learn to do it and I will have to practice but I was able to sew a few lines and made a little pouch hahaha ;) I had my mother in law sew the elastic part for a ribbon head band and after that fun trial I decided to stick with what I am good at THE GLUE GUN! I made myself this STINKING CUTE necklace with fabric and chain.... I love the colors.

Hello my name is Carissa and I LOVE doing crafts the only problem is I don't have money to spend on materials needed and I do NOT know how to sew =) I usually start a project with a simple idea. I then usually go find what I have to work with and then realize the thing I need to make it is not in my possession and I have to improvise and for instance I have never bought fabric in my life I will just use an OLD shirt and use that and instead of sewing I use a hot glue gun...you get the point! My creations always come out great! but today I sat beside my kids wondering HOW IN THE WORLD I could make a cute headband without a sewing machine and not knowing how to hand stitch
