God bless you all,
God bless your Christmas Eve,
God bless your Christmas,
|It's a good thing that I don't mind bugs and insects and anything else my kids seem to find and catch and run up to me in great wonder and amazement and with great confidence and joy! |
I was looking through my pics on my computer to send some overdue pics of the kids and their bday parties to my family members and came across TONS (and I really do mean tons!) of pics of all the little creatures my kids (girls included, thank you!) that they found.
|One of my favorite...praying mantis' are sooooooo cool!!!! Yes, it is one of my favorites...if there is such a thing? |
I guess so...for this momma!: )
|Look at this little guy! We have found about 5 or 6 over the summer and they are always a huge hit. Here is one enjoying our little baby pool (and we were done using it!) so it became his little home for the day.|
|WOnder and amazement of God's creations...|
|Looking at his every move--close ups! My 4 yr old loved to see him pop his head out and then quickly in when he raised his voice at the poor little guy. It was quite funny, though!|
|Our little habitat for a friendly toad|
|Can't get enough of these creatures...|
|Mr. Praying Mantis-see this one is brown? The other one in the top pic is green. They are really cool! :)|
|Look at thos piglet!!!|
|Le'ts go fly a kite!|
|You can do it, Daddy!!!|
|And there Daddy goes! Awesome!|
|Girls give their pink kite a try-they did great too!!!|
|See? It was UP in the air at one point! :)|
|My 2 yr old on the go, go, go! He is always up to something!!!|
Without shoes, of course!!!
My little monkey...
So, how do you spend your Sundays?
We really enjoy spending our Sundays FIRST early at 8am Mass, then our after Mass special chocolate chip scones...then naps..then OUT and About!!! This day we went to a park or it could be a museum, hike, park, playground or the pool (for the summer!).
We started this almost 12 yrs ago and it has such been a blessing in our family.
How do YOU spend your Sundays???
|For the sake of His sorrowful passion, |
have mercy on us and on the whole world.
So many other blogs and people and homilies have so much to say about this 10 year anniversary. I, too, have memories way too vivid ...still.
I can't seem to wrap up my thoughts on this day, enough to put it on this post.
It's just too much to say, too many feelings, not enough computer time to do it.
May we all remember this day and pray for the lives lost
and the families and friends who mourn them.
Have mercy on us and on the whole world.
