All Souls Day

Today the church celebrates the Feast of All Souls.  This perfectly coincides with the Mexican celebration of the Day of the Dead.  I’ve never celebrated Day of the Dead before, but after finding a couple of children’s books, soon to be added to our permanent collection at home, I decided to make a small altar […]

On The Feast of All Saints

I love the Saints.  Love Them. Honestly, it’s one of the best parts of being Catholic. Apologetics 101: Catholics don’t worship Saints, they ask for their prayers.  Kind of like asking your friend to pray for you. Today we look at all the men and women who have gone before us.  Some have been seemingly […]

The Baby Hulk and No David got new bikes last month from my parents.  Of course, it’s been so miserable outside that they haven’t really had a chance to use them.  I’m a bad mommy, if it’s too hot for me, the kids don’t get to go outside.  With the temps a tad lower this […]

Looking Back At Our Summer, really looking back…

As summer comes to an end, I am grateful.  I hold it close to my heart.  It passed way too fast.  The big kids weren’t even out of school for three months.  I have promised to embrace today, the now, to live life without thinking of yesterday or how time passes so quickly.  I think […]

The Baby Hulk got his wish.  He moved up to the sick room also known as Mom’s room.  To make the case for the move, he puked all over the floor of my bedroom.  I feel bad, this child is generally the most emotional/needy and he has certainly wanted attention these past few days that […]

No, it’s not my new blog title.  But wouldn’t that be a fun blog to read.  Have to search for that one. I made it through the first week of school and so did Goose with an E in conduct.  Here’s hoping we have more E’s this year than last year. I will go on […]

You really wanted to see all of my pictures from our trip last May to Hyatt Hill Country, right?  Last spring we went to Hyatt Hill Country with my dad and brother’s family.  And I’ve been meaning to post pictures since then.  With the exception of crappy drivers and a little bit of cactus, the […]

Watching your kids play together is a dream for any parent, I’m sure.  What I have loved watching is the creativity. I admit that for half a second my first thought was “who is going to clean up this mess.”  Thankfully, I kept my mouth shut and just ran for the camera. The best part […]

Fourth of July Celebration

When you have a house full of kids, even ones as cute as mine, at times you need a change of scenery. When your dad has a place in Austin where you can crash for free, you jump at the chance to get out of town. As soon as W’s party ended on Sunday and […]

What can I say other than my weekend was freaking wonderful.  Lance and I were talking about every anniversary we’ve celebrated and came to the conclusion that this one might be the best one yet.  And that is saying a lot because Lance is pretty romantic and thoughtful about anniversaries.  While I am not a […]
