St Blaise Feast Day

Well the family just got back from celebrating Blaise's feast day. We went to a children's mass and holy hour in honor of St. Blaise. Blaise and Tony said the rosary together and we all got our throats blessed even baby Benedict. It was a great time and I loved kicking off the weekend this way! If one ever feels far away from God you need only to sit by a child and listen to them pray. If you can't sense God in that then I am not sure where you will sense Him.... Father spoke tonight about the President and his "decisions" regarding health care and a woman's choice... I won't get going on that one...you need only to look at my bumper sticker on old Bessy to see how I feel! All in all we celebrated Blaise's feast day just how he wanted although he gets his special cake tomorrow!

Construction Paper

We love construction paper. You can make cards, pictures, and signs for your friends or family! During the 1860's paper was mass produced so artists and amateurs began experimenting with paper art. Immigrants from Poland brought a special technique for beautiful cut designs. I am part polish so I wanted to try it out myself. Julia, 10

Music to my Ears

A few months back Blaise began waking up two or three times a night! While the baby slept like a log the 3 year old was keeping me up! I was exhausted! Julia got a brand new cd player for Christmas and gladly offered hers to Blaise. So as any mom of four would do I wrapped it up and surprise! Blaise received his first electronic gift in time for New Years! This has been the best regifting item ever! I love love love the fact that we are now getting a sound sleep. Blaise turns his cd on at night and when he happens to wake up he puts another cd in and listens to it until he falls asleep again. Now it has led to him memorizing Geronimo Stilton, Magic Tree House and Nate the Great....so when you hear him shout "cheese niblets!" it is music to my ears!
