Power flyer

I have so much fun introducing the boys to new and different ideas. Last evening at our weekly Cub Scout meeting we are working on our geology pin. We had a very interesting conversation about Volcanoes. I showed them pictures of all the different kinds of rocks that come from a volcano and then we talked about nine different parts of the volcano.
They were intrigued that there was something called the ring of fire and the Volcanoes are primarily located around it.
We closed the evening with this very simple craft they enjoyed so much. 
Cut a  piece of paper three inches by eight inches
Glue down the long side of the paper, then roll and make sure it stays closed.
Fold the tip down once.
Staple the ribbon to each side of the fold.
Make a triangle out of a 2 inch by one inch piece of paper and staple it to the folded tip.
Put the straw inside the tube and blow the flyer high into the sky.

Pineapple salsa

It only takes three ingredients to a wonderful no fat salsa. Salsa can compliment many dishes. Now that spring is in the air, I could not wait to start with something fresh and refreshing to eat.

All you will need is:
1 peeled and cored, diced Pineapple
1/2 small red onion diced
1/2 cup cilantro

Mix all the ingredients and you are ready to enjoy the sweet and tangy tast of this salsa.
For a low fat and refreshing lunch I topped my cottage cheese with the sweet tast of my pineapple salsa.

Spring is awakening!!!!

Spring starts with all the colorful Easter decorations and preparation for our families Easter traditions. Even though Easter is a little over four weeks away, there is so much to plan. We color about two dozen eggs for Easter and the Cisco Kid and I make a 3D bunny cake. I cannot forget about the Cisco Kids Easter basket that I have to put together. Then I have to plan for my Easter dinner. I follow my mother’s tradition and make very traditional Easter bread every year. Within these four remaining weeks, we have added a fun surprise and committed to a Disney Cruise vacation.  Cant wait for that!!!

Here are some of my Easter decorations. I made a couple of new decorations this year. Here are a few from last year.
I collect Easter bunnies. As you can see in all my arrangements I have an Easter Bunny.
 I like the feel of Easter to start at the front door.  My front door hanger I put together yesterday.   
 I just love this wire bowl that I have sitting on my Kitchen table all the time. I transform this center piece for every occasion.   
 I took all the flowers out and now I need to try to transform this into a color full spring, Easter arrangement.   
This took me a long time.  As you can see the previous picture is day light.  The completed picture its evening.  WOW!!!! Finally done.

First Game of the Season and they had some great plays.

Last season the boys did not seem to care about winning or losing, just as long as they played. This season that is all they could talk about. The Coaches are great about not making the game about winning. The coaches still do not keep score. I guess the boys are all growing up and maturing.
They won their first Soccer game.
This is where they are congratulating each other for winning the game. 
A little father and son bonding.
