Making Cotton Candy!

Making Cotton Candy!

While trying to save money we try to find more things to do at the house instead of always going out and doing laser tag or chuck e cheese. Nothing is wrong with laser tag or chuck e cheese, but it can break the bank and FAST. We tried to think of more activities to do around that house that will not only be fun but also a learning experience for the kiddos. What I mean by kiddos since I only have one kid, is also my nephews.


We found this cotton candy machine on a for sale or trade site on Facebook for only about $20. Cotton candy is delicious, so we figured why not have one at the house!! We messaged the lady and we got it the next day! We took it home, cleaned it and got everything set up. It took a couple of tried but we finally were able to figure out how to work it and love it!!


Nostalgia Electrics is the maker of this Hard Candy Cotton Candy machine. It is a bright red and works like a charm. The kiddos helped us put the “hard candy” in the middle and the turned the switch on. Once the switch cuts on the middle start to spend, causing the middle part to heat up. We taught them that once something heats up it starts to melt, but in the cotton candy machine, it turned the hard candy into cotton candy. They have so much fun mixing the colors and seeing how it is made. Definitely an invention I cannot see myself living without. Thank you, Nostalgia, for the amazing opportunities you have provided for my family! We are huge fans of you now!

Sunday Funday

My bible verse of the day:

“As the deer pants for streams of water, so my soul pants for you, my God.” Psalm 42:1

Waking up knowing today is Sunday and I’m going to church puts me in such great spirits!  Every Sunday morning I’m woken up to my son coming in my room, grabbing both my checks with his tiny hands and saying, “good morning mommy”. My son, Tanner, likes to get up at the crack of dawn, which I know if I forget to set my alarm clock, I have one that has two little arms and legs, and know he will march in there and wake me up. With everyone in great spirits, we get ready for church. We take turns taking showers and making our coffee.

Once we arrived at the church we are greeted with the uttermost love from our church family. We attend a small church, so it is like a small family. When someone does not attend we can to check on them, making sure they are okay. Our church family would not be the same if anyone was missing!

Every Sunday we have a potluck after church, so we like to cook a meal or two and bring it to church. Since today was “Children’s Church” we had a lot of finger foods. There where hot dogs with chili and cheese, chips, cheese dip, little sausages, and much more.

We always have a great time and if you have time you should come check it out!
