On the Solemnity Feast of Mary the Mother of God...

... which was this past Friday, January 1st.


A beautiful, newly blessed, statue of Our Lady holding baby Jesus


Mary, Mother of Jesus by Mary Joslin
Mary: The Mother of Jesus by Tomie DePaola
Mary Mother of God Coloring Page


Blueberry Muffins with a little help from Betty Crocker
(I never did end up making that Blueberry Cobbler... Muffins sounded a little bit easier and I've been avoiding the kitchen as much as possible!)



Twinkle Toes lost her top right tooth!
(The other top tooth is just barely hanging in there...)



Snuggles loves "coloring" now too!


And one more picture because you're right, all I've been doing is watching, cuddling, and feeding my super hungry cute little baby, who is already growing way too fast!! :-)

  2. It's now a running joke that I am going to have to buy that same exact Mary sttue myself because it has been on my gift list for over a year now and I still ahven't gotten it. DH just shook his head when I told him you got one, especially already blessed. Looks like a wonderful day. Hope you're getting some sleep.

  3. Rose is soooo adorable! Congrats Twinkle Toes! Such a milestone, the first lost tooth. My oldest has a hard time biting his food when his were falling out. The good news is they don't hurt growing back in :)

  4. Oh! That is too funny Robina!!! It was actually on mine forever too, and I finally just ordered it when I was ordering a couple other statues for gifts. =)

    House of Fontanini offers free shipping, plus an additional 20% off right now on orders over $50, which made the statue only $35!

  6. Little Rose is just too cute Jessica! Congrats again!
    Thanks for all the wonderful pics!
    Quick question: I seem to be absolutely incapable to do anything regarding the Liturgical Year when DH is home... It seems that our routine gets completely off... Not in a bad way, but I feel that we miss out on some Saturday and Sunday feast days. Any ideas on how to counter that?

    Thank you!
    God bless,
    Mattie
