First Confession

Peanut had his First Confession this month at St. Anthony of Padua. So proud of him!
As Catholics, it's an important day! Peanut couldn't wait until he went to his first confession.

After, he wanted to spend time in church with Jesus in the tabernacle.

We, then prayed to Mary in front of her statue. Peanut has a special devotion to our Blessed Mother.
He always wants to visit the garden in between the Adoration chapel and the church. So, of course on this special day, he wanted to spend time there.
He calls it Jesus's garden.
I felt blessed to share this day with him. While in the garden reflecting, I thought... This is the way it's supposed to be for us

New starts

Goodbye to our old van. We will miss it.

Jim saw an email that our good friends needed to buy a car. After some discussion, we decided we wanted share our blessings so we sold our van for a good price. I admit I was caught off guard and was not ready to get a new vehicle. But, I do love that my husband was so generous and was thinking of others.


Here is the new van. Peanut calls it his dream car.

J and C are getting an upgrade and We were certainly blessed in return. It has a few fun features. I really like the trunk release and the back up camera. Oh! It has audio Bluetooth for my phone. Yay!

Can't wait to see what God has intended for us and our new van! I think I hear a road trip being planned.:)
