She's an angel straight from Heaven, yes she is

Oh, yeah, in amongst the bleeding and the fainting and such, we had a celebration of a religious milestone in our family on Saturday. Our new church was dedicated a few weeks ago, and here is Princess in front of the statue of our patron saint, Saint Louis. OK, you can't see the statue, but that's because I wanted you to see Princess. Hubby insisted on taking a picture of the two of us together (which I can't seem to make small enough to post on the site without screwing up my sidebar). Notice that the white first aid tape on my thumb coordinates nicely with Princess' dress. The weather forecast called for clouds and rain, but that's not what we had. This was the weekend for the annual plant sale to benefit the school. Another huge picture, but a cool one because Princess' glasses turn purple in the sun and coordinate nicely with her dress. It was a beautiful service, and Princess was very excited and proud. And I'm facing the fact that my baby is growing up.

Who's Who

    Hubby- aka DH My husband since 1995. He is the head of the band department at a college prep school, and dabbles as a wanna-be pop star.

    The Princess- aka DD. Third grader at the local parochial school. Loves butterlies, sparkly things, the color purple and has recently developed a crush on one of the twins from "The Suite Life of Zach and Cody". Is ready for her teenage years, having already perfected her exasperated sigh and dramatic eye-roll.

    Hoss- aka DS1. Kindergartener and resident spirited child. His aunt likes to call him "the evil genius" because of his penchant for letting a lack of intellectual stimulation lead him into mischief. Likes trucks, sports, building things and burping. His current favorite word is "underwear."

    Lil Joe- aka DS2. Born in 2003. Doesn't say much we can understand, but has mastered the important stuff ("eat!", "Wash hands!", "Want chocolate ones!", "Hockey game!") Likes to push buttons, much to the consternation of whoever is trying to watch a DVD. Firmly refuses to use the potty, despite evidence that he is physically ready to be out of diapers, indicating a level of stubborn that eclipses even that of his parents and siblings.

    Me? I'm the Mama. That's all you need to know.
