Silly Putty Stuff

Hey there! Scarlett came over a few days ago and we made silly putty! It was a lot of fun. Some of the stuff we made was really stretchy! LOL (See last picture!) we took some and slowly started stretching it! It got soo long! It was a ton of fun!

Here's the recipe in case any of you want to try it!

4 cups water
2 tsp.s 20 Mule Borax
mix together in bowl

2-3 Tbsp. liquid school glue (or more if you want more but you don't need a lot)
Food coloring!!! (Whatever color you want, but I suggest not mixing colors unless you want to end up with brown)
Mix the food coloring with the glue thoroughly. Pour glue mixture into the Borax water and then use your hands to mix the glue stuff together. (Keep it in the water.) When it finally sticks together, take it out and have fun! We like to keep it in Easter Eggs, but whatever you want would work.Plastic bags etc. (Warning: After a while ((a week or two, maybe three)) the putty will get very sticky and gooey, and will make a big mess! At that point it simply needs to be thrown out!)

My Birthday Party

Hey Everybody,
Yesterday was my Birthday party! That was so much fun. Sarah Casady , Amy Jo Underwood , and Scarlett Burnham were all here. We had such fun. We went swimming in the afternoon, came home and dressed up in formals and stuff like that, and then we went to the back room and took glam glam pictures. Then we ate pizza for supper. Afterward I opened gifts, and we played some games. Then we set up air beds all over the floor in front of the TV and watched Anne of Green Gables while we went to sleep. This morning we had pancakes and sausage for breakfast. Then we got out a bunch of colored paper, and stuff like that and decorated not books . This is both the front (very top) and the back (undernieth the front)

We had a great time. Have a blessed day!

We're Home!

Hey Everybody!
We're home!!!! We got home yesterday afternoon, and got my b-day presents from Mom, Dad, Michael, Heidi, and Holly. John assures me that his is coming LOL. We had soo much fun at Anna and Peter's. Amelia is soooo sweet. She has gotten pretty big too. I'll post pictures in a few days (maybe in a few weeks, but I'll try to get it done before that. :D ) There is one really funny story though.
Sarah and Charity were both sitting at the table coloring with crayons, (Sarah is 2 and Charity is 1 and somethin' months) Charity was mumbling to herself, and then Sarah started saying , "Hey Cherry Berry (what we Call Charity sometimes) Are you talkin'? Are you Talkin'? Yes you are! Awww! Cute!" And She made Charity soo mad! Charity had a crayon in each hand, and she just sat there, and screamed! Then Sarah said,"Aww!" and she stopped talking to Charity for a while, and focusing more on her crayons. Then Charity started to talk to herself again, and Sarah started up again too. "Aww, Cherry Pie! You're talkin'! Yes you are! Aww! Hey, there, you talkin'! You Talkin'! " And Charity got so mad again, so we made Sarah stop, but it was really the funniest thing to see!

I have finally scanned into the computer some more of my drawings. Sense the last drawing that I have posted on here is ancient, I thought I'd post some of my more recent ones. I know that the one I posted before was a dragon, but i don't do many things besides people.
This first one is Nancy Drew, but the rest aren't of anybody in particular.


Today Michaela Johnson, her mom and two younger sisters came over for the girls' violin lessons. After Michaela's lesson, we went outside to see the tomato plants. and then we took some self portraits and came inside and took some more pictures.


The Johnson Girls

Michaela and Me!

Tomorrow we are going to see my sister in Florida and her family. She just had a baby. It was girl and her name is Amelia Joy! Holly and I are going to stay for a few weeks and help out. So today we went shopping to get some clothes, and ear-buds for our MP3 players, and batteries. Later we may go out shopping again to see if we can get a few more things. I will try to take lots of pictures of the girls while we are in Florida, and hope to post all about it when we get back in a few weeks. Please pray that we will be a blessing, and that God will grant us travel mercies.

With the Reeds

Ever sense Last Saturday, we've had the Reeds over here. They left this morning, but when they were here the girls learned how to sew. They both made a nightgown. I helped Rebbecca, and Mom helped Bethany. This is a picture of the finished product. :D (Bethany is the one making funny Faces. :P )
They were very proud of their work, and did a great job. I helped Rebbecca and Mom helped Bethany.
We went to the beach on Sunday after Church, and these are Bethany, John, Rebbecca and baby Samuel (in the front in the baby carrier) all ready to go to the beach. (Joshua is in the background of the picture laying on the love seat. He had just woke up from a nap. :D ) Holly took a few pics of me while we were waiting. There are about five pics, almost exactly like this one. . . . :D This one is blurry, but it is the one I clicked on, and I didn't feel like replacing it with how long it takes the pictures to load onto the computer. :D

This Summer

Hey Everybody!
This Summer I've been doing a little bit of sewing, and a good amount of writing, and some drawing.
This is a picture of a dragon that I drew.
(P.S. This is an old Drawing, but it was one that was already scanned onto the computer)
I've been a little bit uninteresting this summer thug, and haven't done much. I have been being pretty lazy. Soon, Holly (My sister) may be going to stay with my sister and her family. We are really excited about that. It ought to be a great experience.
When we come home, I think Holly has a paper she is writing :P and I hope to eventually (Though I most likely will not accomplish this this summer) save up enough money to bey a small 12" or 13" (maybe) laptop, mainly for typing my stories out on.

The Youngest Sister

I'm Laura, the youngest girl in the Bentley Family. I have four older sisters, and two older brothers and one younger brother. I love to write, and to draw, and have tried my hand at painting a few times. I love babies, and love to help take care of them. My two oldest sisters are married, and One of them has three little girls under the age of three, and the other has one under the age of one. My sister teaches Piano and Violin. My last sister, is pretty close in age to me, and we hang out together all the time.

God Bless,
