I really do. My dh is a wonderful man, who loves his family dearly. He cherishes his children, plays with them, spends amazing amounts of time with them, and is basically just an all-around terrific dad. And yet, in spite of all of that, it seems that God doesn’t bless him, or other men, with … [Read more…]
…for the light blogging as of late. They say “real life trumps blogging life,” and I must say this is true. I have been battling a low-grade fever for many days now, which resulted in getting my little you-know-what trotted over to the ER this afternoon (much to my great dismay). After many tests, they … [Read more…]
Last evening we had our parish’s first All Saints’ Day party. The kids were very excited about going, but unfortunately, I was NOT going to be able to sew anything new for them… so it was an interesting experiment to see exactly HOW we could make them into the saints they had chosen, simply with … [Read more…]

Still, I want … [Read more…]
Oh yeah, I’m in love… (it has been SO HARD to get a decent picture of her! For one, she barely stops moving and secondly, the camera we’ve got seems to “flatten” out her features, so my really rather thin baby comes out looking chunky in every picture! My dad’s camera took great pictures of … [Read more…]
hmmmmm. Blogger seems to be having great difficulty this evening. I was hoping to finally sit down (while nursing) and upload some pictures but, alas, twas not meant to be. I will say though that it’s been a busy week… THREE birthdays (Kathryn’s, Thomas’, and finally Marie’s today.), some homeschooling, a doctor’s visit for Grace, … [Read more…]
Prayer whispered yesterday evening: “St. Therese, please pray for me that these panic attacks will go away.“ Guess what just started blooming on my rose bush this morning… Bear in mind that this particular bush hasn’t had any roses on it in, oh, several months now… (excuse the bad picture. I had to take it … [Read more…]
