DIY Play Dough

My son LOVES play dough... no really... L.O.V.E.S. play dough.  Play dough happens every single day in our house.  We go through a can of play dough basically every day around here.  He leaves it out, he plays with it so much it gets gross, half ends up on the floor... you get the idea.

I have been washing and storing the little play dough cans for just this occasion.  Time to make some new home made play dough!

Here's the ingredients you'll need:
-Cream of Tartar
-Food Color
-Wood Spoon
-Sauce Pan

See the video below to see the full tutorial!

SURPRISE! Wizard of Oz Party

Guys... my mom is seriously THE BEST MOM.
She beats me in the "Mommaing" for sure.  Mainly because not only is she a great mom to me but a great GRAMMA to my kids.  That's double duty right there.

We got her tickets to see the production of The Wizard of Oz for her 55th birthday.
Sure, I could have wrapped them up and just handed them to her - but that's NO FUN.

In comes the SURPRISE Wizard of Oz themed birthday party!

We had already taken her out to dinner (we had the best homemade gourmet hamburgers of our lives y'all!).  This was after dinner where we brought her back to our home for dessert - or so she thought.

Here's are a few photos from her special night, if you'd like to see more details and the look on her surprised face, watch the video linked below.
