{pretty, happy, funny, real}


~ Capturing the context of contentment in everyday life. ~

{pretty}


I placed my pretty St. Agnes statue on my kitchen island on her feast day this past Monday morning...


I also pulled out the ingredients to make Agnesenplätzchen (St. Agnes Cookies) from Cooking with the Saints, but ran out of time before we had to leave for town.   Even though her feast day has passed, I think I might make them for Sean and the kids this weekend anyways.  


{happy}


After picking up Sean at the airport yesterday afternoon (YAY!!!!!) we all headed to meet up with friends at the the rink to go ice skating!  Happy, happy day!  


{funny} 


Our little cowboy just loves scooting around on his bull.  
 He also enjoys hanging out inside my book baskets...



{real}


Somebody was mad, and refused to look at his daddy, when we picked him up at the airport...
However, it didn't take Bud long at all to forgive him for being gone for three weeks!

    1. Yes!! I also LOVE those little booties! They are so comfortable for him and slip on easily and yet stay on! They are so great! He only has this one pair (the brown classic bootie) and we use them nearly every day.

  2. I always love seeing your St. Agnes statue! It is so incredibly beautiful! You'll have to let us know how the cookies turn out, if you end up making them. Welcome home to your husband!

  4. The ice skating looks like fun! Welcome home to Sean! My husband left this morning for 4-5 more weeks but at least he got to see one of the basketball games this season (last season, he missed every single one and it bothered him a lot).

  6. Where can I buy one of those St. Agnes statues? Lucy is getting confirmed in a few months and has chosen Agnes as her confirmation name. I'd love to surprise her with a statue like yours.

    1. This statue was actually a gift from a friend who purchased it from a local artist. I will see if I can find a contact number for you.
