Pretty, Happy, Funny, Real 5

Spent some time at home and some time at my parents' house in Florida recently (left the Gulf area just before Tropical Storm Debby hit!).  There's nothing like being right on the water, and I love staying with Mom and Dad--we get to go to Mass every day in a beautiful spot.


Morning Mass on the island.
Made of this awesome stone!

Carved wood Madonna and Child.


I love having the kids home for the summer!  The girls (Chop is 11, Alleluia is 2-and-one-half, and Peel is 8) play together pretty well.  Chop is always making weapons, Peel likes symmetry, and Alleluia kept making "lollipops" out of the Tinkertoys, presumably because they were so easy--just a stick and a round piece!

Watercolors are relaxing.........


She's always trying to wear other people's shoes! The swim cap obsession just can't be explained....


This week was the last Wednesday Morning Playgroup for my neighbor and founding member, Andrea.  Our kids have grown up a lot in the almost 2 years since we started!  She and her beautiful family will be sorely missed!


  1. That is a beautiful church! Sounds like your summer is off to a great start.

  2. Booo! So sad to be leaving:(
