~ Capturing the context of contentment in everyday life. ~
I just love this Woodcut Irish Blessings Celtic Cross that I found at our little Catholic Bookstore yesterday. It is sitting on my kitchen windowsill. So pretty!
I am very happy that I was able to get a jump start on some fun treats for this coming weekend!
Saturday is going to be super busy, with back to back plans from 9am-7pm including the boys last day of Hockey (including a Skills Competition, Parent vs. Players Game, and Potluck), a birthday party for a sweet little 2 year old, and then evening Mass since my Hubby will be leaving for a 3-week training session all the way across the country on Sunday morning at 4:30am. As I mentioned over at Catholic Cuisine, I also agreed to help a friend provide treats for our Coffee Hour after Mass this coming Sunday.
So far I have most of the Candy Shamrocks made for on top of our Mint Crunch Cupcakes and the kids just finished helping me decorate some St. Patrick's Day Gold Coins! I posted links to our documents over at Catholic Cuisine.
OK... I know that my Shamrock Eggs look a little "Gross" and the Snake Snack is silly, but does the Cinnamon Shamrock really look like an Octopus? LOL! Now that you mention it, if I just add one more heart shaped cinnamon roll where the stem is, and a little round "head" on top, it might make a perfect "leviathan" for our Wind and Sea Good Shepherd Garden Party!
It has been... ummmm.... 3 YEARS since Captain began making his St. Patrick Lap Book. My grandfather passed away that same week (3 years ago yesterday), and it just never has been completely finished. Maybe this year? Is it just me, or do unfinished projects drive you crazy too?!
My sweet little Bud has been hanging out in the baby basket at my feet, happily watching me type up this post! I just can't believe that he is going to be 3 months old on Monday... He had his weight checked yesterday and is already up to 11 pounds 12 ounces. He is such a cutie!
