But we are so blessed. And I know it, but I forget to be thankful. So having that reminder, "The Lord has done great things for us; we are filled with joy" really brought a smile to my face, because our lives are so filled with joy all thanks to the Lord. If it weren't Lent, you know I'd be saying the A-word all over the place!
Anyway, we also wore some stuff to Mass today - hey there, Fine Linen & Purple!
You know what? It's March. And that means SPRING clothes to me! Even though it's still winter...
So Cecilia wore her new green seersucker dress, because she's really the only one of us who has anything green... Ok, it was 40 degrees when we left the house. She was wearing leggings and 2 sweaters, but she shed both sweaters at Mass and took them off immediately at home, too.
You can tell she did a great job (sarcasm) at Mass because even before we left the house she started crying that she wanted to wear a ponytail instead of her chapel veil. Not an argument worth having with a 2-year-old. It only went downhill from there.
John Paul, however, did a great job! Just sat there reading the hymnal getting VERY excited every time he found a Latin chant that he knows.

Close-up on the shoes (and the stockings that make me look like a ghost...)
And for fun, this is how I changed to make the outfit more home-appropriate:
Hmm... A darker tank is probably necessary, but I'm too lazy to change now. This week's assignment: Buy a full-length mirror so I don't have to take a picture to figure out if the oufit works or not!
Check out some other ladies & their fine styles!
