Some of you asked why the older ones do not want their pictures taken....is it just on the blog or just in general. Well Hampton and Kendall are at that awkward age, I think they have social anxiety about how they look. Even though Kendall sports bright pink hair, she is a quiet and introspective girl. Marvin asked me today how much longer the pink hair phase is going to last.:) I told him do not dare say anything to her about it or she might wear it forever. Hudson and Landon are not as bad but when the older ones do not want their picture taken, I just put my camera aside. I do have one picture of Landon.
The other day I noticed water was standing in the cabinet under the sink. That is always a fun way to start the day. Thankfully I have a great plumber and he came right out and took care of things. Turns out we needed a new faucet.
I am going to share something with yall that has been a long time in the making. Marvin and I had been doing a lot of reading about the early church and after much thought and prayer we decided to attend RCIA and join the Catholic Church. We started attending classes back in September and we were recently welcomed into the church. My old neighbor, Euny, was my sponsor. She and her husband, Brian, were coming for my first communion but then covid hit their family. They plan to come next weekend instead. Marvin's sponsor was his old high school friend, Tommy. Most of our close friends knew we had joined Annunciation but we have not been very vocal about it, understanding that many of our friends are scratching their heads at this change at our ages. All I can say is, we truly feel God lead us in this direction and we have been so blessed by our church and our priest, Father Merrell. As we told our pastor at our previous church, we are not mad and we did not wake up one morning and decided we want to be Catholic. It was a journey of faith that lead us down this road. Now to the funny part. On Sunday afternoon, my friend, Susan, texted me and asked if I wanted her to save the picture of me and Marvin in the Sunday paper. What picture? What ????
This picture was made on our first communion, February 27th.
