Kili as an Indian he says. I think he's a Cowdian. Yes, some boys still do play cowboys and indians... or both at the same time.
Mr. Fixit. I will say in all my complaints for having only 2 arms, I truly never thought to use my mouth as a handy place to hold something, like a flashlight. I still have alot to learn.
St. Nicholas Day we opened our stockings which were filled with goodies like a new toothbrush (how else do you know when to be sure everyone has a decent one?), chocolate coins and other little tidbits.
Frodo was ready to test for black belt when we switched schools so I got him a real, thick, nice black belt. He also received his Christmas present a little early so he could use it... sparring gear. Thrilled is an understatement.
The girls brought home cookies from the Bakery.
Mr. ILoveChocolate. I have learned why children make messy faces while eating chocolate. Then there is something to lick off while it lasts savoring the delight for a longer period of time. I really think I'm getting this parenting things down with some sound understanding of children... maybe.
He would like you to know that someone gave him a lego tardis and Dr. Who.
Ok, so mean mom award, time to clean the face.
My little "cameriere" (waiter in Italian) serving a PlaDoh "panino". He was very serious about his business of making sure I had enough to eat. Yes, I am working on some Italian. Of course I probably will only manage at a restaurant and a zoo and pre-school color books. I felt pretty savvy until I told one of our Italian friends I reply to me in Italian and I could only pick out a few words! Better get moving as they are coming to America!
My vantage point from the choir loft for the ordination of 2 priests from the Society of Jesus Christ the Priest.
Congratulations Fr. James & Fr. William! God bless you... and THANK YOU!
For the Feast of St. Juan Diego, Pippin's confirmation saint, we opened a gorgeous statue of the saint. I had never seen one like this so I couldn't resist it.
I took some of the children over to Rockin' Jump. I got to visit with a friend (therapy session) while they bounced and played and had a great time.
Marigold climbing the rock wall. Seriously! Would you?! I would NOT! *shiver*
Our current printer was up to some 40,000 copies on it (in a rather short amount of time) and Aragorn brought home this beauty! Between homeschooling, his business, and booklets for our High Masses, we go through alot of paper. I'm tickled!
