Outside my window ~
Last weekend was pretty chilly outside, but mother nature has dumped blue skies and gorgeous sunshine on us all week long.
Thursday is suppose to be 66. I love it!
I am thankful for ~
* this little 3 year old fashionista who had fun dressing up in the hats and scarves after Mass last Sunday
* for left over donut glaze on her face
* for AWESOME prices on shoes (for Mama!) at DSW

What I am reading ~
I am LOVING this book!
And the book of the week for Clementine and Stan...
Tomorrow, we celebrate the feast of St. Felix. This delightful story tells how one of God's smallest creatures saved the life of a man from the evil hands of an emperor.
St. Felix, pray for us!
From the school room ~
Affirmation in homeschooling!
Miss Sally received her scores from the PSAT she took last October (she took it at the local high school.) These scores are for the brand new SAT that makes its debut in March. She did very well on it.
That night she registered for the SAT (March 5).
Things are getting exciting. She wants to be a nurse, working toward a degree in midwifery.
I am praying for ~
* all those who have asked me to pray for them
* an end to abortion
* our priests
* my husband (his company's busy season is upon us now)
* my children, for their continued steadfast growth in their Catholic faith
Around the house ~
Well check-ups and hair cuts this week (and next).
I just love Miss Mabel's honey-colored hair, natural highlights, and silky layers. Stan the man is pretty handsome I might add ;)
The beta fish are getting a sprucing up as well. Miss Ester and Mabel created new rock caves for their fish tanks.
Pretend cooking never gets old. ( Don't you love Melissa & Doug wooden toys?!)
From the kitchen ~
I have a couple of new recipes I need to put up. Hopefully by this weekend??
I found this note on Miss Ester's back while she was baking in the kitchen...
"I'm in tune out mode." I guess she didn't want to be bothered ;)
I am listening to ~
Either a loud truck or a loud motorcycle in the distance, miles away. It's noise is growing more faint.
Coming down the pike this week ~
Monday - well check-ups
Tuesday - hair appointments
Wednesday - ballet (Miss Clementine) and Confirmation class for me
Thursday - horse riding
Saturday - the girls have a 16th birthday party to attend
A last photo to share ~
I overheard Miss Clementine talking to her toy bear as she was "feeding" him ;) I never tire of this adorable age.
Happy hump day!!
