|Gumbo, gumbo in the pot. We need a princess. What ya got!|
|I went a little over board this year and stuck candy in it too. The boys helped.|
Today we went to Pancake Dinner at church. Where they ran around and again there was strapping down of child in stroller. Hubby was coming home from Toronto on the train at the time so I was solo. The stroller acts as my extra set of hands. Without it I would have bald patches of scalp showing.
We also made caterpillars which have built themselves lovely cocoons and are waiting to be reborn into butterflies for Easter. Yes, it's a metaphor for the Resurrection. I'm not sure that the boys will understand that at this point, but they love caterpillars and butterflies so it works.
|Those are the caterpillars hanging from our ceiling.|
Tomorrow is Ash Wednesday. The school is having a Mass at our parish so I think I'll take the boys to that one instead of the super early or super late (for them anyway) ones. That should be fun. Stroller, you are my ally. When will this awful winter end?!?!
We are also making a crown of thorns. Flour will be everywhere. Which will go well with the oobleck we played with today.
And just a reminder. I will be offline tomorrow (and every Wednesday of Lent). So if you do have an emergency, please call me first. Then call Hubby who will also try and call me...who will then get on the bus and try to track me down because either a) I won't have heard the phone ring or b) my battery will be dead....again. E-mail is so much easier, but I will try to remember to keep my phone around.
Now off to deal with the library and to finish the novena.
