Smiley Baby

This baby

That tongue!

We should proably call her
Fuzzy Wuzzy

She enjoys her fingers...

and that tongue...

How quickly she can go from this

to this

and back to this.

And even to this.

Her sister makes her laugh.

My Preschooler

I cannot take credit for this photo
but needless to say it is among my favorites.
Sometimes I wish I could freeze time,
have I said that before...probably.

We made Valentine crafts for our "Craft Room" a few days ago. 


 Heart Snowflake Garland

using coffee filters.

They were pretty easy to make!

Happy St. Valentines Day!

Our Lady of Lourdes Rice Krispie Grotto

Yesterday we made a Rice Krispie Grotto in honor of our Lady of Lourdes. 
I saw the idea at Catholic Icing.

Of course we just kind of "slapped" ours together, not quite so fancy.

We also watched the story of Saint Bernadette
available here.

An interesting fact about Saint Bernadette is that her body never corrupted after death.  She is one of the incorruptible Saints of the Catholic Church.
I find that just amazing!  Anybody that has anything agaist the Catholic Church or think that is is soo "off" how would you explain that?
You can check out Saint Bernadette here.

The Secret Trick to Cutting Onions!

Do your eyes water like crazy when you chop onions?  Mine sure do.

Thankfully my loving husband chops most of the onions around here!
However, I know the secret now!

Breathe through your MOUTH
and not your nose
and you will have no more tears!
It really works!

Presentation of Jesus in the Temple - Candlemas

Tomorrow Feb. 2 is the Feast of the Presentation of Jesus in the Temple, also known as Candlemas.

So, we got a jump start today as we did not have school!
Ours are a bit sloppy,
as I had 2 children crying calling for me so we were rushing.

This book has some great ideas.

He really was exciting to eat this -
He was waiting patiently for me to snap a photo!

This kiddo enjoyed his edible candle too.

They were fun to eat!
