Author Fiesta

This summer the girls and I are going to participate in an Author Fiesta along with online families. Our library only had 2 Patricia Polacco books, but we enjoyed reading them.

Yesterday, we read Betty Doll and Curly Girl and Diva both drew a picture like in the book. They sketched with pencils and only colored in the doll itself. Well CG took a little creative license and colored in her name too ;).

First Communion

Last Sunday Teen was finally able to receive her first Holy Communion. She was the only one at 11:30 Mass to receive. Here she is with Father. This will likely be the only picture she ever has with Father. He has been reassigned. :(

A great friend and artist created this beautiful cake for her. If this friend had a blog - I would link to it, instead here is her email address. Not only did it look great, it tasted wonderful. It even smelled good. It was hard not to eat it on Saturday night!

Your Life is 60% Green

Your life is pretty green - and you know a lot about how to live an eco friendly life.

So congratulate yourself for being good to the earth. And maybe think about implementing some of the ideas from this quiz!

Princess Leia

Which Fantasy/SciFi Character Are You?

A strong-willed herald of causes against injustice, you passionately strive to right the wrongs around you.

Somebody has to save our skins!

Well no wonder my Star Wars fan of a hubby married me!

How do you....

How do you rationalize to a 2 year old (A), at 4 am, that:

1 - "no, she was not just at the museum" - it was just a dream.
2 - no, we will not be going to said museum RIGHT NOW.
3 - to convince her to go back to sleep.
4 - to go back to sleep before waking her twin sister with her screaming!

We are sitting here at 4:45 watching DVR'd Diego!
