More Creativeness!

Recently I shared some of Elijah and Timothy's creativeness and now I want to share Joanna's creativeness. One of the things I requested for Christmas was a new purse. Don't get me wrong, I LOVE the purse I have now, it's just really worn. It is the only purse I have had in almost three years. My mother-n-law gave me this purse after the fire and I have really enjoyed it! When Joanna heard that I wanted a new purse she decided she could make me one...Here it is!
On the other side it has a pocket. Too cute! This purse is a little too small for ALL my things...but it is the thought that counts. Joanna is so thoughtful and has such a big heart. She is a blessing! Very thankful that God gave her to us and I can't imagine life without her.

We Have Blue Eggs!

If you have been following us long you know we have chickens! You also know about Isaac hatching a few eggs and we had baby chicks a few months ago! (so cute!!) Those babies are at the laying stage now and one of them is laying blue eggs!! Our rooster is an Americana and the hens are red sex links.  An americana hen will lay red, white, and blue colored eggs. These chickens and raising them has been such a great thing for the kids...and me! :)

Lilla Rose Black Friday Sale!!

I am very happy to announce a HUGE sale at Lilla Rose! Its a Black Friday Sale! All the details are below and starting at midnight Thursday you can check it out at www.lillaraose.biz/cantinacamp! 

Another Deer!

Isaac killed a 6 point deer yesterday! He was so excited! (Warning: pictures that follow may not be suitable for everyone) :)
 Bryan was not around yesterday which meant Isaac had to get it done himself. This was a great experience for him! With the help of a neighbor, Isaac and I were able to get the deer to the house. Then with the help of Sarah, Elijah, and myself we were able to hang the deer up. Then the rest was up to Isaac. He skinned it and got the meat off. We now have some deer meat in the cooler!
So proud of him and thankful that he is learning some skills that he can take with him through life.

Creative Children

All of our children have a very creative side. It is so fun to see what they can come up with. I am amazed at how their minds work. Wanted to share some of Elijah and Timothy's creations.

Love it!! Thank you God for these children and their creative minds!

Loving My Lilla Rose

I can't say enough great things about the Lilla Rose products! I wear a Flexi Clip almost every day. I really feel that you would enjoy them too. Head on over to www.lillarose.biz/cantinacamp and take a look around at these great products.

A long time friend of mine bought a few of the Flexi Clips and I just had to share with you the picture she sent, along with the following comment: "It did great! My hair stayed pulled back all night. :) And I was coaching 4, 5, and 6 year olds in soccer. I was moving around a lot, and it worked great!" 

Science In Our Back Yard

Isaac was doing his outside chores when he happened up on this big thing! Isn't that cool!!
He couldn't wait to share it with the rest of us (after he made sure there were no living hornets in there). The younger kids and I have learned about the paper wasp and this was a great example of their nest. 
Here is the inside, see all the little rooms (cells)? You can see how paper thin the walls are like the paper wasp nests. It is wonderful to be able to touch what you have been learning about...hands on learning here!
This was really huge! Think about all the time and dedication it takes these creatures to build this massive nest. Wonder how many rooms are in there.
Here is a picture of one of the dead hornets that were inside. God is amazing and so is His creation!!
Thank you Lord for sharing Your creation with us!
