1 - Heard this one on the radio the other day and really liked it. Is it about John Mayer? Does anybody know? And why would anyone ever want to date John Mayer?
2 - I have a new post up at Ignitum Today called Building Community with Ministry. I wrote a little list of ministries I'm familiar with that have worked really well in the parishes and areas they've been in. If you have a ministry to add I'd love to read about it in the combox. :)
3 - We're gearing up for a busy weekend. Tomorrow is Bennet and James' birthday party. It's a little nerdy how excited I am for the decorations (a real, running train track on the kitchen island!) and the cupcakes (oreos for wheels, pretzels for jovey logs!). Tonight and tomorrow morning will be spent decorating the cupcakes, cleaning the toilets, and hanging up balloons.
3 - Sunday is the Mass of Thanksgiving for Fulton Sheen being named Venerable. There is a whole bunch of events - a holy hour, mission rosary, the Mass, a brunch - but because we have four little kids we're only attending the Mass. However, I'm super excited that LISA HENDEY!!!! and I will be meeting up briefly as she will be interviewing me for an article she's writing. I'm also excited to get the chance to meet Brandon Vogt, a fellow Ignitum Today contributor, author of The Church and New Media, and an all around nice guy.
4 - Geez, I hope Brandon's not insulted that his name didn't get all caps. BRANDON VOGT!
5 - Here's the pics of the re-arranging:
|James' crib is out of the first floor nursery.|
|Bennet's Thomas bed and dresser.|
|Lydia's bed and dresser. Princesses and pink.|
|Teresa's side of the room. (Thanks for the dresser, Lisa!)|
7 - I should be baking or getting dressed or doing puzzles with my kids.
