Two very special Crosses picked out for my newly adopted niece, R. M.!!!
The gold one is for her 18th birthday... I have written a letter
to her, for her to open on her 18th birthday to go with this
and my Sister and Brother-in-Law are going to save it
for her for this time....
I am so excited for her baptism! The Crosses are both
From one of our walks at my parent's house...
One of the cutest dogs ever, named Dobby!
At Lake Michigan 2 weeks ago...
Some of the books I have gotten recently...
I am saving them for when I am back home in NJ...
I have been blessed with many treats since St Peter and Paul day on Thursday!
So nice! This week I hope to make scones for dessert for my niece's baptism this Sunday!
I am excited for that!!!
One of my Mom's Miss Read books that I read already this trip!
I am enjoying one right now called Miss Clare Remembers that
has a lot of history and lovely descriptions in it!
My Mom made delicious GF brownies (my sister is GF) and she
used her super fun vintage scale!
I have had fun eating taco salad and today chicken salad too!
Lunch at my parents house, with my sister, brother-in-law and Uncle L at the meal!
I went to liturgy at the church I was chrismated in 14 years ago
this August... It was nice to be back...
there were various familiar faces but tons of people who have come
since I left in 2004... a lot can happen in 14 years...
This song is one they sang, along with another one that
had verses about praising God... I was very moved...
this (below) is one I listened to years ago...
it's sung by the mother of one of my godsons
and I listened to it before I knew her, so it's
doubly special to me.
It's a beautiful song.
