7 Quick Takes

 
 
 
 
1. 12-12-12
This date was my birthday!  I had a wonderful day with my family and enjoyed it so much.  Plus, it is awesome that my birthday is on such a great Feast Day. I love the Feast of our Lady of Guadalupe.
 
After the kids went to bed on my birthday night, my husband and I watched The Odd Life of Timothy Green.  Two weeks ago, someone said to me that they felt that they needed to tell me to watch it.
 
I cried my way through that movie.  Maybe it is just because it is "where I am at."  But, I totally lost it while watching the final scene of the movie.  It was a good thing that only my husband was there to witness it.
 
Anyone else see it?? 
 
 I should have a movie party at my house so people can see it . . . I won a copy of it from an Orphan group!! Y'all are invited!
 
3.A  Funny things heard around our house lately #1
 
One of my husband's coworkers got engaged recently.  So, we were talking about it and my 6-year old began to talk about the engagement ring and said,
 
"An engagement ring is a ring that the man gets to try to get the girl to say yes."
 
3.B  Funny things heard around our house #2
My youngest does not seem to want to own up to his negative behavior.  On my birthday, we went to mass and then came home for brunch.  While eating brunch, my 4 year old asked if he was good at mass.  I responded with a question.  The conversation went on for another minute, until I asked him directly, "A, what did Mommy ask you to stop doing at mass?"
 
He responded,
" Let's stop talking about this now."
 
I guess he decided to plead the 5th . .
 
4. The End of the World (a laugh)
 
 
 
5.  A Christmas wreath after my own heart
From Colonial Williamsburg
 
Not only is it pretty, look at what it is made out of . . .

 
Ah, yes, coffee!
 
6. Healthy cookies??
I love to bake.  Or really, just make treats! But I have not made any in a long time and I want to make some form of a Christmas cookie, but healthy. 
 
Someone, please send me links or ideas!  I searched Pinterest and had a hard time finding anything that I liked.  I would like something gluten free and still yummy!
 
7. From Little Flower Projects
 
 

Little Jia was losing weight at first, but he's gaining now and up to 3 lbs 5 oz (1500g). Even though we've visited specialists and run tests, we still don't have a diagnosis or know why his head is enlarged. Keep the little guy in your prayers.
 
Have a great weekend everyone!!
