It's Wednesday and I'm linking up with Hallie
1. New healthy babies! New nephews to be exact! 2! Born one day apart! We are loving getting pictures and videos and ichatting with our new cousins! I'm actually quite impressed that Ellen knows baby Nate is Aunt Katie's baby and baby Wesley (she pronounces it Wes-A-lee) is Aunt Mary Jo's baby. We can't wait to meet them soon!
2. Onto something not nearly as amazing... A big thanks to whoever posted the 20 minute Peppa Pig video on You Tube...and the 50 minute one, and the hour long one. (We ditched cable in March...and Peppa went with it.) The 5 minute clips weren't allowing me to be nearly as productive as the 20+ minute gems are! It's the little things. Really.
3. Fall clothes! Call me crazy, but I love going through clothes for the kids (and myself) for each approaching season, making a list of who needs what, and then getting me some dealzzz on what everyone needs. I scored big time shopping online at Old Navy. Extra 15% off and free shipping?? Yes, please! Everyone looked very spiffy in their new Sunday best at Mass this weekend!
4. Pumpkin everything! Ellen and I made pumpkin bread yesterday afternoon while Michael took a 2 hour nap (there's a favorite inside a favorite!) and an entire loaf was almost devoured after dinner. Tis the season. (This recipe
is our fav.)
5. This quote from St. Bernard that I recently came upon:
"In dangers, in doubts, in difficulties, think of Mary, call upon Mary."
