My Birthday Weekend ~

What a wonderful birthday weekend I had!  It began with First Friday Mass, Adoration and Benediction with our homeschool group.  Afterwards we had a big potluck lunch.  This was followed by the annual Christmas play.  We had such a fun time with that!

Saturday we were invited to share music at a local Christmas fair.  In the past we've gone to nursing homes and hospitals.  This is one of our birthday gifts to Jesus.  Afterwards, my mama took me shopping.  She is such  sweetheart and is sooo generous!  We had a great time!

On Sunday we went to Mass and mama came over for a yummy lunch prepared by my sweetie.  My sweet girls made cake and cupcakes.  They also renewed my Mater et Magistra subscription, which was just what I wanted!

 I also got to order some books and a DVD I've been wanting with a generous birthday gift from my honey's parents. 
  • A Little Way of Homeschooling
 
  • Saints and Angels
 
  • Karol, A Man Who Became Pope
 
  • Great Adventure Kids Bible Timeline Chart
 
  • The Book of Saints and Heroes

 
  • Lives and Legends of the Saints
 

I can't wait for all of these goodies to arrive.  I am truly thankful for all of my many, many blessings!
