My Sunday Best #17: Mary Rose Turns One!

Happy Sunday!

This morning we went to the 11:00 Mass. Mary Rose was not on her best behavior. Chris and I had to pass her back and forth repeatedly, but we all managed to make it to the end of Mass. Despite her crazy antics of face smacking, hair pulling, and head-butting, the kind lady behind us made sure to let us know that she was the sweetest baby who was able to make it through Mass. The people at our new parish really are super friendly.

Thomas had his confirmation prep class directly after Mass. His class is an hour and fifteen minutes, so the rest of us picked up a snack and visited three different parks in town. The weather was warm, but not too warm, and humid. It was pleasant to be outside, but the humidity made my hair look crazy!

Chris took this picture of us at one of the playgrounds that we visited. 


Last week was a busy week for us.
We celebrated Mary Rose's first birthday on Wednesday. I can't believe that my baby is already one! She is fun and very feisty, running around the house and getting into everything. We just had a small family gathering for her Wednesday night. She liked her cake and ice cream, but she didn't love it. She only ate a couple of bites of her small slice of cake and just a few tiny spoonfuls of her ice cream. The boys really enjoyed their first tastes of cake and ice cream, so Mary Rose's disinterest was a little surprising to all of us.


These are the best photos of her birthday. Very sad, right? I need to pull out my old Canon Power Shot because I am tired of poor quality cell phone pictures!


The next day, Chris and I celebrated our twenty-first wedding anniversary. We didn't do anything special, but he did bring home gorgeous orange roses and dark chocolate. He knows me so well! I am excited to spend the next twenty plus years with him. In case you missed it, you can read how we met here.

I hope you have a fantastic week. Tomorrow my father and I will meet each other for the first time. I would appreciate it if you would please say a prayer for us.
