My Husband "Subvet" says that when our first son "Sonshine" was born the sun rose on our world, when our second son "Gator" was born the sun laughed and when our daughter "Sugars" was born all the flowers bloomed. That says it all.

So, apparently, when life gets exciting blogging lags.  At least it has for me!

So, here are the goals I made almost a month ago:

1) Finish the donation cross for the paralyzed firefighter's raffle **
2) Finish the 5th Joyful Mystery coloring page **
3) Take down the Christmas decorations
4) Print out copies of the kids Santa pic for this (ahem last) year
5) Send out Christmas cards


1) is ALMOST done!  it's gonna look awesome.  This rookie firefighter was paralyzed in a car wreck right before Christmas, he works with my cousin.  Once I get the framed cross finished I'll post picture of it. 

2) DONE!  This is a project I started some months ago for my kids.  I printed out coloring pages for each of the mysteries of the Rosary to put in a binder so that they can have a better understanding of what we're talking about as we pray.  The "kids coloring pages" turned out to be so detailed and complex it took me FOREVER to finish!!!

3) DONE!

4) DONE!  well sorta.  After several attempts and a trip back to Santa I ended up without any pictures.  Somehow my stick got corrupted or something.  So I printed out this fun picture from Christmas Day instead!  (see header photo)

5) DONE!  yeah, they went out a month late.....but dangit they went out!!!

whew.  So for now, I'm trying to get some Made by Mightymom items finished and posted that would be appropriate for  baptisms and First Communion like this sweet little white rosary with iridescent bead accents and a pretty pink crucifix!

Have a great day folks!

Better late than never. Glad you went ahead and sent them out. You get a LOT done always. I like the way you set, and then work toward your goals. The white cross is really lovely.

You're a better woman than I about the Christmas cards. I got all of them addressed--but only about 4 signed with notes, so they are all in a box ready for next year. If I should kick the bucket before then, well it'll be like getting messages from the beyond, and THAT is definitely ME! lol
