Playing Catch-Up

It's been a week since I've posted and I have some catching up to do.

Matthew and his preschool class took a field trip to a nearby State Park. 

A couple of days later we celebrated Mother's Day.

I got breakfast in bed while watching Fox and Friends.  Does it get any better?

Thanks, Bill!

Before mass
Bill got me this new apron. (don't worry, he's not in trouble.  I asked for one.)

A few days after that, we had a May Procession and Crowning at Moms and Tots. 

First, I had the children help me make the crown by sticking flowers in the wreath.

Then, I asked Stellie to carry it during the procession.  She said yes because she's cute like that.

What I didn't account for was the wind!  By the time Mary was crowned, most of the flowers had blown off.  Sorry Mary.

We sang Immaculate Mary and placed flowers at her feet.

 Once we were back inside, we enjoyed these cookies my friend Eileen made.  Aren't they cute?


I think we're all caught up now.

Upcoming events include a birthday, a graduation, and a visit to my favorite show again!

Have a great day!
