Three Weeks Old!

I Love Canada

I must say, I am very proud to be Canadian today! I mean, I am proud every day, but today there is extra! Eric and I were on the edge of our seats watching OT in men's hockey today. Crosby was on and he took a shot at the net and missed. I said "Wouldn't that be nice if Crosby would score the winning goal......", then I was interrupted by Eric cheering, because, in fact, Crosby had scored the winning goal! We both jumped around screaming and cheering, Paris was barking and dancing around. It was a great moment! I was so nervous we would loose to the US, and I just could not bear that!
Canada did awesome at this Olympics! This is the first year I have really watched the Olympics closely, and I really enjoying watching. We owned that top step on the podium! I am so proud?
Is this kind of pride a bad thing?

Camp Craft and 400th Post!

I was going to write something grand for my 400th post, but nothing is coming to mind! A couple weeks ago I was reading some posts from a few years ago, and it is like reading another person's blog! Man, have I changed! For the better I would like to think!

Today I made the craft I am planning to do for camp. I am very happy with the way it turned out, and I am pretty sure I will be using it for camp! I think it suits BCBC very well! Here are the pictures, complete with camp poster girl, Kelly Ann! hehehe
I am quite confidant this craft will take a few days to make. What do you think?
Does anyone have any simple crafts that can be made with yarn? For kids that finish early. Preferrably without knitting or crocheting, of a whole lot of other supplies!

I have decided to give up Facebook for lent. I just spend far too much time on there, so it was an obvious pick. I also learnt that if you start on Ash Wednesday it is 46 days until Easter Sunday, and lent is 40 days. This is because you are allowed to break on Sunday's from lent! Not that lent is mandatory, it is a personal thing, so if I decide to break it I am only cheating myself and my relationship with God! I am not sure I will every Sunday, but I probably will tomorrow! I have also decided to give up buying candy/chocolate. I just don't need to spend money on that. Now, if someone were to give it to me, that is a different story! LOL. I have never really done lent before, so this should be interesting!

Are you doing lent? What have you decided to give up?

New Babies!

Paris had four beautiful babies Friday evening! There is a black and tan male, a chocolate male, a black and white female, and a very very dark gray (maybe) female. I can't wait for them to be running around!

Ideas For Camp Crafts?

This year I am in charge of planning a craft for BCBC, even though last year was a disaster! I have a few ideas this year, but I am always looking for something better! So, if you can think of something that is creative, fun, will take about 3-4 hours to make (5 days @ 45 minutes a day or so), and the supplies are affordable (this is the hardest part), than I would love to hear it. Just throw out ideas! It would be best it if has to do with nature, camp, etc. Last year we did calenders with scrapbooking paper and stamps.

Here are links to the two ideas I like. The only problem is, they do not take very long to make!

Beat-a-Leaf Journal or Bookmarks, etc.

God's Eye Memory Keeper

I love them both, but we could make a 3 or 4 of the second one, and string them together. That would at least make the project a little bit longer. That way, the faster kids can make lots of them, and the slower kids can get at least one or two made! Therefore I am leaning towards the second one.

What do you think? Be honest! And if you have ideas, please, please, shout them out! Don't be shy!
