Here's the idea...
Blow up a couple of hundred balloons
then fill a room with them.
Turn off the lights
and use a bunch of glow sticks.
We used about 100 of the small sticks
all colors and then then light up
the balloons and the room.
Turn on the music
and have a dance off
or just have fun jumping around.
It's a blast and fun way
to jazz up the party.
Celebrate with food and fun!

Pizza and fun at the Pizza Factory!

Project for summer.
Hannah is 8 years old.
She picked out a layer cake square package.
Layed them out and sewed
6 across and 7 down.
She begged her Grandma Dana
to stitch the big rows together but,
her Grandma assurred her
that she needed to complete the quilt herself.
So she did.

She carefully layed out the blocks
and designed exactly where they belonged.

Adding a minkee backing
made the quilt soft and cuddly.
A great project for young girls
to complete during the summer vacation.
Stay indoors and keep cool.

These instantly became ZACK's favorite.
Dana's nephew from Alpine
who flew in for a visit.
2 1/4 cup flour
1/4 tsp baking soda
2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
2/3 cup mashed bananas
1/3 cup milk
1 tsp vanilla
2/3 cup shortening
2/3 cup sugar
2 eggs
1 cup chocolate chips
Preheat oven to 350. In a bowl, combine flour, baking soda, baking powder, and salt. In another bowl stir together bananas, milk, and vanilla. Add shortening to the banana mixture. Beat until fluffy. Add sugar and mix well. In a large bowl, beat one egg at a time. Stir in about 1/3 of the flour mixture and then, stir in about 1/2 of the banana mixture. Repeat until everything is incorporated. Fold in chocolate chips. Drop onto a cookie sheet, about 2 inches apart. Bake 10-13 minutes or until golden brown.
