The West Ladies
While Marlin and i both managed to forget our wedding anniversary, he did not forget mother's day. He gave me 3 videos from here. www.homesteadblessings.com. The link probably won't work but at least you can see the website address. The videos are called Homestead Blessings and one is on bread making, one is on candle making and the other is on soap making. They're awesome and the kids and i are totally psyched about making our own soap and candles. I've been wanting to get into soap making for a long time but since I'm such a visual person i didn't even try to figure it out from a book. The videos are simple to follow and very interesting. We had seen the West ladies from another movie and we decided back then that some day we want to visit them in Tennessee. Well, i decided i want to and the children think their farm looks like so much fun that i don't think we'll have a hard time convincing big daddy to take us. The producers of the movies is Franklin Springs, who have also made other movies that we have really enjoyed. They're all documentaries or "how to" movies with a strong, conservative christian feel. They make wonderful gifts, (as i well know)so if you're looking for something different and neat to bless someone with, check it out.
