Happy Happy Birthday Baby

That is my baby! Today she is seven years old. I think of where we were when she came, where we are now. All the in between. All I have learned from having her. She has her fathers eyes, it's nice to see them looking at me with love instead of anger. She has my love of all the little animals. She loves clothes like her big sis, she loves dirt and legos like her brothers. She is the best little girl I could have hoped for. She can love on her hamster and beat up her brother five minutes later then run in the kitchen and smother me with kisses. God blessed me with giving her to me even if I didn't realize it at the time, I know now. It has been a crazy roller coaster since she was born, I can't wait to see what is going to happen in the next seven years. Happy Birthday my little princess, I hope you always stay the same loving little angel you are now.

Today We Built A Solar Oven!

Today we took a pizza box and made a solar oven. We used the directions from here. I know you will get a ton of hits if you just put in make a solar oven on google. It was pretty easy and the kids enjoyed it,

Well this is our oven all ready to cook some bagel pizzas. The kids ate them happily and were pretty darn proud of theirselves at that. After a little research we found even more recipes that could be used here. We were so excited we forgot to let the oven preheat so t speak. It makes cooking time faster so don't forget. I also think I was suppose to put black construction paper inside which I skipped. That may have made it work better.
