Evan's First Birthday! Dec 31 2007



Born on New Year's Eve, Evan's Birthday will be a party every year! Family and friends gathered at Stacy and Brad's house for the special event. Evan really liked his rocking horse. He was almost walking on this birthday and has since taken his first steps. He is growing so fast.

Homemade Play Dough

Martin Luther King Day and a day off from school. Rylie spent the day with me and for fun we made homemade Play Dough and made some cute thingies. The recipe is easy. 1 cup flour, 1 cup salt, 1 tbsp alum, 1 tsp vegetable oil, food coloring, vanilla flavoring (for nice smell) . Mix and add warm water until the right consistency. Knead it like crazy until smooth and voila! Something to have fun with that smells great. I used to do this with my own kids when they were little. The play dough can be air dried or stored in airtight container for another day.
