11 Months Old

Guess who is 11 months old today?! I can't believe there is only one more month of real babyhood.

favourite food: toss up between peas, green beans. and sweet potatoes.
favourite activity: climbing up the stairs, although he's only made it up one or two and being chased around
favourite toy: any ball
And here are pictures of his sisters at the same age:
Felicity, 11 months

Maria, 11 months
One more month til the big birthday!

7 QT

1. Sooo glad its Friday today. What long, dreary week!

2. Some of the things we are doing for lent this year are saying a daily rosary, and making it at least once a week to daily mass. So far, so good! One week down.......sooo many more to go.

3. Speaking of lent, does anyone else do the "sacrifice jar" with their kids and find it the most amazing thing in the whole world? The kids are scurrying around trying to do sacrifices, and bending over backwards to be helpful and kind to one another. Randomly throughout the day, Maria will clean up her room, the living room, and the basement just so she can put beans in the jar. I will also hear things like "Maria, do you want to play with me so I can give you this toy?" Haha...she's 3 and only kind of gets the whole thing..but at least she is trying! If I only have one of something, and they both want it, all I have to say is "who wants to make a sacrifice?" and it solves the problem!

4. Shane and I love to watch seasons of tv shows in the evenings. Right now we are watching Suits. Anyone else can't get enough of Harvey Specter?

5.  Gosh I am having a hard time cranking these out. Nope. Nothing interesting to say.

6. Apologies to all 5 of you who are reading this. What a waste of time.

7. Aaaand I hear the baby crying after only 20 minutes of to figure out if he did or didn't nap...

Have a great weekend! Go see Jen!

Weekend Fun

I feel like I'm falling off the blogging train here! I missed 7 Quick Takes on Friday, and I meant to get a pic of my outfit today, but I didn't have a chance before I had changed out of it. I was even wearing a new skirt. Boo.
 We've had a great weekend though! On Saturday we did our grocery shopping, went sledding, and had a movie night. Today we went to Mass, had an amazing brunch, went to the gym, and then went swimming. But I didn't get any pictures of anything! The kids were so exhausted we had them all in bed by 7. I just finished by favourite job of cutting the hub's hair, and now its time for a little Sunday splurge of chocolate and tea, and Amazing Race viewing.
  Then I'll be ready for Monday...maybe....
I did take some pictures of our week though!

7 Quick Takes: Snapshot Edition

After last week`s very wordy post, today I am keeping it short and sweet with some snapshots of our week.

Maria`s attempt at hanging streamers for my birthday. 


The girls looking fab as always.

Trying to snap of pic of us bundled up for our daily excursion into the great outdoors. We go across the street to get the mail. Takes fifteen minutes to get everyone ready, two seconds to get the mail, and then another fifteen minutes to get everyone undressed and all the coats, boots, mittens, and hats put away.

Haha that face. Believe it or not he is singing. Very passionately.


I let William loose in the snow for the first time. He loved it. Didn`t even mind putting his face in it.

William made it partway up the stairs today. Oh joy. At least Maria is a very good sister and made sure he didn`t fall!

This kid loves anything that is a ball. Sure sign he`s going to be an athlete, right?!

Have a lovely weekend! Be sure to visit Conversion Diary for some more Quick Takes!
