Small Successes :: December 10, 2009

"It’s important for moms to recognize that all the small successes in our days can add up to one big triumph. So on Thursday of each week, we do exactly that."

I made it to the post office on Tuesday (in addition to Mass, OB Appt, Michaels, Old Navy, Costco, Gas Station, Grocery Store, and Bunco!  It was a BUSY day!) and mailed out Christmas gifts to all of our Godchildren and Family that live out of town.   I do have two more little gifts to mail after I finish wrapping them, and Christmas Cards to order, but I've decided to send those out late this year so we can include our new little one in the photo... I'm starting to wonder if that was such a good idea... They may end up being really late!

I baked cookies, with my friend Marci, for St. Nicholas Day and Honey-Curry Chicken for St. Ambrose.  I ended up not being home much at all on Tuesday, but the children still got to decorate a Gingerbread Nativity (as planned!) at a friends home while I was making multiple trips up and down the freeway!  Last night, for the feast of  St. Juan Diego, I served Alice's Our Lady of Guadalupe Tea.   Since it had so many sweets, I saved the "Build Me a Church" and Rose Punch for today!  It's been a fun week for celebrating the saints!!

This one was actually from the week before last, but because I really want to share it with you all, and I haven't posted my "Small Successes" in awhile, I'll add it! ;)

I got out the paint and touched up the walls in the baby's room!!!  It looks so much brighter and cheerier!  I also washed all the lovely "Lady Rose" bedding and it is now ready and waiting for our little one to make her arrival!

What are your Small Successes this week?

Stop by Faith and Family Live to read more of this week's Small Successes.


  1. I am so impressed! You are an amazing mom - can't wait to see pictures of your newest little one! Hang in there!
    Advent blessings. :)

  2. OH, how pretty!!! I love the bedding. I can't believe you got so much done in one day. I can't get the at much done, and I'm not pregnant! Still praying she turns.

  3. Wow! Just wow! I can't believe how much you got accomplished! Good for you. :) Just make sure you rest and take breaks throughout the day. You'll need it for labor and beyond. My prayers continue for you both.

    God bless!

  4. Oh don't worry! Just because the beginning of the week (or rather Tuesday!) was so productive, doesn't mean today was! ;) I got plenty of rest today, including a nice long nap this afternoon!!

  5. You look so lovely and so does the baby's room. I bought the same bedding for my 7th child. Her middle name is Rose. I wish you the most beautiful, peaceful, spiritual delivery of your darling babe.
    Best wishes and many prayers

  6. OH, my gosh, you look sooo beautiful, you have a perfect baby tummy!!

    Your baby bed looks so pretty, I'm so excited for you and we are all anxiously awaiting the news!

    quick question: Do you let your baby girls wear pants?

  7. You have to answer that last question before I send your package...I was so busy looking for roses that I forgot about looking for a pants ok?

  8. Sorry Jamie! I started to last night and then got distracted! =) That is so sweet of you!!

    Yes, I do let my baby girls wear pants and leggings.

    You know, as I was looking though all the baby clothes I have I realized that I don't even really have that many dresses for the first year or so, since it wasn't until Chiquita was a baby that I started wearing mostly skirts myself. =) With her, I just started putting her in dresses once she was walking, since it is so hard to crawl in a dress! ;)

  9. Thank I gave away my gift!
