I had to redo the zipper on Molly's Easter dress. Now that it's finished, I'll start working on Jane's dress. I was happy to get to Joanne Fabric & Crafts to pick up that material plus a quilting bundle to make Nick a little blankie!
--Feast of the Annunciation--
For dessert that evening the kids and Daddy had "Angel Food" cake with cloud-like whipped cream and yummy strawberries. Thankfully my neighbor was able to lend me her angel food cake pan. This was a first for me, and it turned out quite well...obviously, this is Daddy's last bite!
--Stations of the Cross...At Home!--
We've been very blessed this Lenten season with the opportunity to attend Stations of the Cross almost every Friday of Lent this year. In year's past we've done them at home because of little babies or squirly kiddos. I purchased these little votives, we would line them up, and the kids would take turns snuffing them out. They love this! This Friday I had a much needed errand to run...clothes necessity for ME so we had to improvise, once again, with our home version of the Stations.
--Belated National Pig Day Celebration--
This was such a fun evening! We had pigtails & pizza with canadian bacon.
We also had a plate full of pig cookies.
There were Piggy Back Races in pink clothes!
And...they watched "Charlotte's Web!"
Today we had a fun Lenten Tea with our friends, the Krafts. They have a beautiful family so it was fun to spend the day with them. We followed Alice's Lenten tea suggestions found on my Family Formation page under "Holy Thursday." Here are a couple of pics.
Some very happy girls!

I am so excited for this week...Holy Week! We have another Lenten tea scheduled for Tuesday, a Seder meal planned for Thursday, and Stations of the Cross for Friday. Then we begin all of the Easter preparations. We will also be tagging along with all the Garden of the Good Shepherd Garden Parties for the Easter season...more on this later!
