This hot (check out that sweat!), cotton candy eating boy will soon be turning 6 years old.
He is such a sweet little boy.
Recently there has been a bit of talk of a Wii, we do not own one, but he knows some kids that do. He does not whine or expect one right now, he has just asked if he could get one when he turns 7 for his birthday (which will be next fall). I found that quite sweet. He has always been sooooo awesome when we pick out a b-day gift for another child at a store about not whining to get something too.
However, I am starting to dread the "parent pressure" of keeping up with the OTHER parents when they are all saying yes, to so much.......ugh....
NOTE: I am not saying Wii's are bad or anything, just trying to avoid one for as long as possible for various reasons!
For now he does get to watch movies when we go on "long trips" - like the Stanton County Fair we went to in August - hence the heat in the above pics!
Of the Virtues of the Most Blessed Virgin Mary ~ St. Alphonsus Liguori ~
The most holy Virgin had more faith than all men and angels. She saw her Son in the crib of Bethlehem, and believed Him the Creator of the world. She saw Him fly from Herod, and yet believed Him the King of kings. She saw Him born, and believed Him eternal. She saw Him poor and in need of food, and believed Him the Lord of the universe. She saw Him lying on straw, and believed Him omnipotent. She observed that He did not speak, and she believed Him infinite wisdom. She heard Him weep, and believed Him the joy of Paradise. In fine, she saw Him in death, despised and crucified, and, although faith wavered in others, Mary remained firm in the belief that He was God.

I hold true to conservative and old fashioned ways...
I am Catholic. I am Pro-life. I love having a "largish" family - although I fail at it on a daily basis...hopefully my children will always know I love them, even when they drive me crazy....is that wrong that I tell them that? ha!
