From the school room ~
Today is our fourth week of the semester! (Time is passing so quickly.) We are going to take a study break on Wednesday and use a Christmas gift (to Great Wolf Lodge) that we have been saving. The two youngest don't know yet, so it'll be quite a surprise. :)
I am praying for ~

* for all those who are marching the in March for Life
Around the house ~
Someone was so bored the other day so we used up that good, old, swim-in-the-tub activity.
This is a snapshot of us at the Birth Choice of Dallas benefit dinner where we heard his Eminence, Cardinal Burke, speak.
From the kitchen ~
Miss Mabel made this chocolate cake - from scratch for Sunday dessert. It was SO good!
They were an impulse buy for a mid-week snack.
