Valentine Candy Cane Hearts

Valentine's day is here!! My family already has the teachers gifts, guess what the are! My mom thought this brilliant idea up once again (maybe she got it from one of the blogs she follows) ....candy cane hearts!

These homemade valentine gifts must be the fastest and easiest to make! All you need are candy canes (two per heart), and a hot glue gun (tape probably will hold, but not as well).
First, turn the candy canes towards each other. Next, glue the heads (curved part) together, as I did above. This will make it look like a heart, but you are not yet finished.
Third and last of all, glue the bottom of the candy cane together. Really simple, huh. 

And there you have it! The easiest edible hearts you can ever make! Have a great Valentines day!

Christian Books

There aren't very many good christian books in our world. Not very many to rely on. But God has led men and woman to be inspired and write good books for us and non-christians to enjoy. I know three really good series of christian books.
The first one is Red Rock Mysteries. It is my favorite of the two and has a lot of action. There are two main characters who's names are Ashley and Bryce. They are twins who are good christians along with their mom. They also have a stepdad and stepsister who are not, unfortunately, christians. The twins solve dangerous mysteries and grow in God every day.
      The first seven books of the Red Rock Mysteries

The second you have probably heard of...the Mandie series. It is very good too. It is about a christian girl named Mandie who lives with her uncle and mother in a huge mansion. She also is part Iroquois and has adventures in the Iroquois village, as well as at home. She finds mysteries and adventures with her friends, and sometimes visits different  countries with her friends and family. It is much more fun then it sounds, and I recommend it as a series to consider reading.

The third book series you might have heard of. It is called the Sugar Creek Gang. The main character is Bill, who is kind hearted and caring. He is a member of the Sugar Creek Gang along with his pals, who also solve mysteries. Bill has a sister and mom and dad, and lives on a barn. The Sugar Creek Gang has many adventures, and grows closer to God as it go's. I think that, if you try it, you will enjoy this series.
 There are also CD's of the Sugar Creek Gang, and this is one

I really like these three children/teen series. I hope you will read some and enjoy (what are some of your favorite christian books? How about you tell me by commenting)!
