A New Bible Edition!

Our oldest daughter, Bean, loves to draw and this morning she took on the task of making “A Bible”  I really enjoyed watching her recall Bible stories and portraying them mostly accurately!  Enjoy the video!

Weekly Memory Verse February 8, 2010

“Blessed is the man who does not walk in the counsel of the wicked or stand in the way of sinners or sit in the seat of mockers.  But his delight is in the law of the Lord, and on his law he meditates day and night.”   Psalm 1:1-2

Homemade Lavender Rice Sock

I wanted to give my aunt a little something extra special this year, but was lacking the extra money to go on a shopping spree so I decided to go the ‘homespun’ route.  I know she’s had a stressfull year so I started brainstorming on things I could make that would help ease some of her stress and relax.  I put a few ideas together and came up with the lavender rice sock.  I have a similar small pillow and absolutely love it!  Lavender is her favorite scent so I hope I have a winner here for her.

Here’s what I used:

Rice (probably close to two cups)

1/3 cup fresh lavender

1 knee high stocking

1 pretty loooooong sock

Mix the lavender with rice and pour into the knee high stocking and tie at the top.

Then, place the rice/lavender filled knee high into the pretty sock and tie off at the top.  I chose to put the rice and lavender into the knee high first to help prevent any rice and lavender from wedging through the stitching on the sock!
