Newest Cousin Olivia Rose


March for Life

My husband ran into my brother at the March for Life this year.  Here's the shot for my mom!

Valentines Day Party

Here are some pictures of our area playgroups Valentines Day party today.  Mena had a ball.  She was able to decorate her own bag to hold her valentines and then she made a spider hat (the theme was Love Bugs)!  Lots of good food and dancing went along with the craft making.   Fun was definitly had by this happy little girl!

Joshua David

Here is our little GUY!  Joshua David is scheduled to arrive on June 26.  We are so looking forward to his arrival.  Isn't he handsome!  I love the second picture where his little thumb and finger are in that position.  He is so much fun already!

Saint Philomena

A good friend of ours embroidered this sweatsuit for Philomena.  The top is of Saint Philomena and on the pant leg is an anchor and an arrow.  We just LOVE this outfit.  It is a little big so she will be able to wear it for a long time.  Hooray!

Montessori activities 3

Here are some of the Montessori activities we have been doing this week.  We took a break for a couple of months and now Mena is much more excited about school.  She even asks me to do work with her now.  The first activity is of a mini calender I found at Micheals a while back.  I have Mena match the small picture with the big picture using a magnifying glass.  The next picture is color matching using the color samples for Home Depot.  The third pictures is of counting beads and numbers.  We have just started practicing numbers and she does not yet know each number or the order.  She likes doing this activity with my help.  The last picture is of animal families and I have her match the families together.

Atrium: Parables

Mena has been learning about the Parables at Catechesis of the Good Shepard this month.  She first learned about the Parable of the Mustard Seed, then the parable of Unleavened Bread, lastly the Parable of the Good Shepard.  She has loved making all the prjects associated with each parable.  Here are a few pictures...

Mena loves school and is excited about it all week.  The past three weeks she has had some separation anxiety.  It has really been draining on me.  The teachers and mommy helpers do a great job of helping her get calm every week but I wish she would go in as excited as she comes out!!!

Mena-isms galore!

So lately Mena has been cracking me up.  The things that come out of her mouth are so funny and I just wish I could capture everything on tape.  Never happens though!  Here are a few things she has said lately...

1.  We were doing our intentions before the rosary the other day and I prayed for Mena to be holy and a Saint.  She turned to her daddy and said, "Mom's always wanting me to do that!" 

2.  We were driving on the interstate and Mena was asking me some questions about the sun.  After I gave her a few answers she said, "Mom, you know everything!"

3.  I know I have more...just have to remember them...will post more later.
