Ordination, St. Nicholas Day and More Oddities

 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!

  1. Kili's face with the PlaDoh sandwich is great! He is so serious!
