A few moments from my weekend, which was very nice ... I hope yours was too.
An overnight snowfall made for a lovely surprise Saturday morning. I took this picture as I peeked out our front door ... the sun had barely woken up. As much as I'd love a little more sleep, I do relish this time of day.
Here's Archie basking in the kitchen sunlight. Cats know where all the warm spots are in the house. :) I love how wherever I am, he's there too. He just follows me (and Little Bear) around the house throughout the day. And not just when he's hungry. Oliver enjoys his solitude, but Archie's a real people person ... erm, cat.
Crackerjack took this sunrise shot on our way home from Mass this morning. We were marveling over the moody, milky sky ... we were also having a very nice conversation about faith. CJ was asking me a lot of questions about why different Christians believe different things and practice the Faith in different ways. Some things I had an answer for ... some I did not, and I told him we'd look into those questions together.
Now for a few moments of ...
Somebody had his first meal served in his big-boy high chair Saturday night! He was quite amenable to the new "protocol" as you can see ... note the little foot propped up on the tray!
As expected, we had a little "help" with the Christmas tree lights today ...
Meanwhile Oliver kept a safe distance.
It's the 2nd Sunday in Advent ... the candles on our mantel tell us so. :) I had such fun making these tissue paper votives with the boys years ago - our rather humble take on the Advent candle tradition.
Blessings on your Monday, my friends ... keep your eyes (and heart) open for those little moments of peace ... and joy. I hope they help you balance any struggles you are handling right now.
I'll see you here again very soon ...
