"Indivisible" coming to theaters October 26

Disclosure: I was given the chance to see an advanced screening, and received ticket codes for a giveaway. All opinions expressed are my own.

"Indivisible" in theaters October 26 #giveawayThere's such a variety of movies available in theaters right now...something for everyone I suppose. If you are looking for a wholesome, clean, moving movie, I highly recommend going to see Indivisible.

This film, starring Sarah Drew, Justin Bruening, Jason George, Tia Mowry, and Madeline Carroll, addresses some hard issues that many military families struggle with. For those of us who aren't military families, it's hard to imagine what these individuals deal with during, and after deployments. I truly appreciate the honesty and openness of this film.

Indivisible is based on the true story of
Army Chaplain Darren Turner and his wife Heather. During the film, we see how Darren and Heather use their talents to bless others, but then struggle in their own marriage. 

This is a movie of faith, endurance, and love. If you would like to win tickets to see this movie in theaters, please watch the trailer linked here and enter the Rafflecopter giveaway below.

Cheesecloth Ghost without Starch

I love the cute cheesecloth ghosts that everyone makes, but most of the tutorials I read required using starch to give the ghosts their shape. I didn't have starch on hand, so I was thrilled when I found a different technique that uses corn starch (which is still probably technically starch, but not the stinky spray kind)!

I found the idea at Love and Laundry...and I'm so glad I did. My kids had a blast making these ghosts.

Popsicle Stick Craft: BB-8

I never know what to expect when my 4 year old says she wants to do a craft...some days she wants to color a picture, and other days she wants to make a BB-8 from Star Wars out of Popsicle sticks!

I thought it turned out well. We started by making the bottom of BB-8. It's just a simple hexagon, with two layers. We alternated which stick was on top. Then we made the head out of two layers of Popsicle sticks, and glued the antennae in between those layers.

Pom poms were added for some extra flare and BB-8 proudly hangs on my daughter's wall.

I'll be linking up to Tip Me Tuesday at Tip Junkie. What fun crafts have you made lately?

Lizard Cake

My son starts planning what he wants for his next birthday cake the day after his birthday. This past year he went through dozens of cake ideas and finally set on a lizard cake...

I'll admit it turned out like a gecko, but my son loved it, and that's all that matters, right?

The Very Hungry Caterpillar Cake

When my youngest turned 1, the only cake that seemed fitting for her was The Very Hungry Caterpillar! When we handed her that cake, she ate, and she ate, and she ate!
