About Me

Fort Benning, GA, United States
I'm an army wife, working mom of 2 kids, and a dancer for fun! My husband Tim works the at the combatives school here on fort benning. I work for MWR at Outdoor Recreation as their admin assistant...I absolutely LOVE my job I couldn't have found anything better! My daughter, Kennedie, was born in January of 04 and our son, Cale, was born June of 09 - that's right they are 5 and a half years apart! Kennedie is VERY involved in dancing. Cale is well on his way to become a fighter - daddy is already working on his punching and kicking techniques! This blog started out as a recipe sharing venture but now it's going to turn into a more "granola" way to live. Cheap recipes more homemade recipes and repurposing things. I'm a crafter at heart so i'm going to throw some of that in their too!

Redneck water balloons

I made these guys about 2 years ago after seeing an article in Family Fun magazine.  It is made out of 3 sponges (the cheap ones are GREAT for this)  just cut in 1 in lengths (you get 5 out of one sponge - you need 15 "fingers" all together)  once you have them cut up you lay them down 5 at a time (in whatever order you want) stacking them up 3 high - you can either tie with a peice of string (which this one shows - or what we found works better (after one peice of string didn't withstand the torture it was being put under) a covered hair elastic! 
 My son loves these. 
 They work great in the water and actually get you pretty wet when they hit you!  Let them dry completely before you put them away until their next use!
