We GOT M.A.D. for our local Humane Society!

This week our church participated in a community wide outreach program called M.A.D. (Making a Difference)!  It was the tweens and teens going out to various homes helping people out with various activities from painting to gardening and more!   In order to get the "little" ones involved today we made natural dog biscuits for our local animal shelter (that is SO over crowded 8( ).  The kids helped make the biscuits (See recipe below) and also help with some back to school bags that will be handed out to those less fortunate for their back to school supplies.  I was SOOO proud of our children.  Here are the highlights...


Linking this up to No Ordinary Blog Hop - in conjunction with their International Homeless Animals Day awareness!








Zachary making some necklaces for kids less
fortunate then himself. 


He decorated bags (on his own I might add) for the
school supplies. 


Making the dog biscuit dough.


These were cheddar & garlic powder biscuits (see below for recipe)
