Doggie Birthday Party

doggie party cover










My daughter wanted to have a DOGGIE BIRTHDAY PARTY for her doggie. I couldn’t resist using this as a learning opportunity. Among the decoration and party food ideas, you’ll find paragraph practice and an invitation for practice writing addresses and the date. Even if your child doesn’t have a doggie, you could throw this simple party for a stuffed animal and have guests each bring along a stuffed animal too!

This resource includes:

• Paragraph guide and final draft sheet to display during the party
• fun dog balloon idea
• trendy bunting with cupcakes and letters spelling Happy B’day
• a super cute dog mobile with dangling paw prints

I cannot tell you how excited I am about the latest in the movies from the Kendrick Brothers!  They are the brothers that have created Facing the Giants, Fireproof, and Courageous.

This one is entitled, War Room.

My prayer for this movie is that it be the salt of the earth – renewing our belief in prayer and it’s power.

Watch the trailer here and spread the word.

Coming to theaters August 28.



Enchilada Casserole

(Note: Those are crushed Doritos on top…I should have added cheese on top, but accidentally put the shredded cheese under the Doritos.  I made another one for a friend and it looked much better topped with the cheese.)


A looong time ago, I was watching the morning news and Charlie Gibson was making his recipe entitled, Charlie’s Holiday Casserole.  I wrote down the recipe and have made it occasionally through the years.

We made it again recently and I thought I’d post it here.  It’s one of those open the cans, dump, and mix it all together kinds of casseroles that are super quick and very tasty.

1 can chili with beans
2 cups sharp cheddar cheese, grated
1 large 12 ounce package Doritos
10 to 15 oz. enchilada sauce
8 ounce can tomato sauce
2 tbsp. onion, grated
1 ¼ cup sour cream

For the topping, set aside sour cream, ½ cup of the grated cheese, and 1/3 of the Doritos bag.

Set aside 2 tbsp. grated onions. Take remaining 6 cups of Doritos and crumble with your hands into mixing bowl.

Mix the onion, and all the other ingredients – except those for the topping – and place into an 8 ½ by 11 inch casserole dish.

Bake for 20 minutes at 375 degrees.

Remove casserole from oven. Spread on sour cream, cover with Doritos, and sprinkle ½ cup cheese.

Bake for an additional 5 minutes and serve.

Serve with a salad and toasted french bread slices.


Proverbs “lapbook style” poster

proverbs cover










Our church is holding a Family Summit this weekend.  The speaker will be Dr. Ted Tripp, author of Shepherding a Child’s Heart.  His website is here.

During the Summit, some of our older children will be making a Proverbs “lapbook style” poster.  I created this resource over the summer after buying the book Shepherding a Child’s Heart for my Kindle.  Dr. Tripp references the wisdom found in Proverbs often in his book.

There are so many good life principles found in the book of Proverbs.

This past summer, we read one chapter each day from Proverbs and then summed up what we learned on a lapbook piece.  We glued it to a poster board, which hung up in the kitchen.  The kids took turns writing the summary each morning.  It was a fun and meaningful activity.

You can get this resource here.

Beanie Boo tent craft

My daughter loves to craft.  She also loves Beanie Boos right now.

We found a cute tent idea online and she recreated it.  She used a cereal box, fabric for the opening, and covered the rest of the tent with scrapbook paper.

She used craft wire and modeling clay to make the hotdog and roasting stick.

bb tent2








She used a rag to create a sleeping bag.
