I have some pictures to share that weren't necessarily taken this week...but looking at them does give me that good, abundant feeling...so...that still counts right?
This pretty makes me laugh. My not so fancy Olympus Tough camera (it is sand, waterproof, drop proof, etc)....has some rather fancy picture options. With my digital camera skills (I have none) I used the "beauty" setting (unintentionally) while taking this picture
The sparkles remind me of angels though!
My seven year old received the Sacrament of Reconciliation on Saturday in preparation for her First Communion in May. I hugged her when she came out of the confessional, a good deep, I'm proud of you and I love you hug.
At my daughter's request, we celebrated this beautiful Gift from God with a sushi dinner. I am getting pretty good at whipping the rolls up...nori and rice and cucumber and roll it up..bam! I even found a box of twelve fortune cookies for $2.00 at the store. We were told by a friend who was told by a friend that Catholics aren't supposed to read fortune cookies. That is no fun! So we were rebels and thoroughly enjoyed them, especially the Chinese translations of English words on the back...so...see..it was educational!
This is special. I am HAPPY that just having dinner together, with a candle lit and throwing up a strand of Christmas lights is celebration enough for us.
So, we have a handful of Barbies in our home???? Eh...I have mixed feelings about them. I do love how the girls are always making huge elaborate families with them. And these families have to get around places...so since I won't fork over $80.00 for Barbie accessories, my girls get creative.
This was from October before we moved...see my little wearing the Halloween shirt...
...aren't you glad I shared?
She seems so pleased with this whole endeavor. Which car would you go for?
I like the snow boots, seems safe.
So, wow....after three daughters God blessed us with a son.
And oh how I love this boy.
He has stolen my heart...and he CLIMBS!
I have never had a baby that climbs before. I mean, if all gets a little too quiet...I know....
Oh my gosh, why would I snap a picture when I should be making sure he doesn't fall off the table!?!?
Because...he is just so boy. I LOVE this.
