Seder Meal

Davis and I went to the Seder Meal at our church on Friday night. We went because he is making his first communion in May and it is a wonderful ritual paralleling communion we celebrate every week.

He was none too pleased to be dragged from his friends on a very nice night, but off we went.

It is a very festive celebration and the children are encouraged to participate.

The dessert Matzoh (bread) goes missing and the children are rewarded with money for some leftover bread. Monsignor Pat handed a 2 dollar bill to each child. I didn’t know about this tradition, so it was a surprise for both of us.

Davis was almost giddy by the time we left….maybe the 5 glasses of grape juice had something to do with it.

He grabbed my hand on the way out and said “Well, I learned something new tonight”.

I got so excited and asked him what he learned and he said…

“Father Pat is rich”.

I guess we have a ways to go on the training!!!

Motocross is dangerous

Not for my boys though...

Last night after Matt's first practice at Bremen I was coming down the hill where the arrow is (I stand at the top so I can help if he falls).

And I fell....face first into the dirt.

In front of EVERYONE!!!

I even had dirt in my teeth.

I jumped up as quickly as I could to lessen the embarrassment as much as possible.


Hannah quickly came to my rescue and helped clean the dirt off my face.

This morning I HURT so bad and I know I don't look much better.


Not sure the picture shows how bad it actually looks and I know you can't see how much it hurts.

Do you think people would laugh if they saw me out on the track wearing one of these......

Happy St. Matty's Day


6 years ago today our family was finally complete.

What a true blessing this little guy is to us.

Pete described him perfectly yesterday...

Matt knows exactly what he wants, when he wants it, and how he is going to get it.

This kid is crazy smart.

This kid is stubborn.

This kid has the kindest heart.

This kid can scream.

This kid is funny.

This kid is loved to the moon and back!!!

Happy Birthday Matthew Charles!!


Now if we could just get him to understand that the world isn't just celebrating "his" birthday today!!!

Good advice

I get my horoscope every morning on my phone home page and this is what today's said....

Libra September 22-October 22

"You're asked to spring into action today, Libra, so don't resist it. Be aware of the fact that things may not be as they seem. There could be a strange facade over the situation that you should be aware of before you act. Your head may seem a bit clouded. Your fantasy world is especially active today, so you might feel the urge to run away and never come back. That might not be a bad idea. "

**I couldn't make this up if I tried**

**I wanted to add that this made me laugh, just because the thought crossed my mind. I am not heading anywhere, I have too much that I would miss**
