#7QT: Will, Fourth Wise Man

It's Friday, Friday... Hi to Jen and y'all!


Writing is more fun than packing. I wrote The ABCs of Gift Giving for The Imaginative Conservative and hey-o! You should check it out.

More Advent posts to come too so stay tuned... I really like this one.


I've been dressing Grace all wrong...

Will (to Grace): What are you wearing?! It looks like a kitten wearing an astronaut suit! You look ridiculous!
Julie: I think that is an owl...
Will (upon inspecting more closely): Ah yes, an owl. Still looks like a kitten in an astronaut suit.

Will: How do you like not wearing pants?
Will: I don't like your pants. They have a reindeer on the butt, and then people look at your butt.
Will: It's all about the precedent, Grace!

Grace is not amused.


Or have I??

Practicing kicks!

Sitting on the bed, helping me pack... or distracting me, either one


Okay, I know you've all been waiting with baited breath... our Christmas decorations:

O [first] Christmas tree!
Grace is getting her stocking for Christmas from Mimi!
Yes, Jesus is already out.

December TBM Topic #36: "Feast Days and Holidays" 

Christmas is the feast day of Jesus' birth, and it's also an occasion of Santa Claus. Where does liturgical living come in - celebrating feast days as well as national holidays! How they are both important to celebrate? People do parades for Fourth of July, start playing Christmas music after Halloween -- and what about Our Lady of Guadalupe? Or the anniversary of our Baptism? Celebrating our birthday and our Confirmation saint's day! How do you see it?

Join us!


Staring contest. Anddddd go!

Happy days, y'all!
