"My Catholic cake is made with a Wi-fi icing!!!" He said, looking at the Catholic Icing website...
He was a little upset that there was no Ascension song on the Pentecost page, so he made up his own:
"The Ascension Song" by John Paul (sung to the tune of "Frere Jacques")
Tra la la la, Tra la la la,
The Ascension, The Ascension!
Tongues of fire, tongues of fire,
Puzzle pieces. Puzzle pieces.
Can you tell what distracted him?
And last night the smoke alarm started going off so of COURSE Andrew had to start singing, "The roof, the roof, the roof is on fire!" to which John Paul responded, "The roof is on fire! BECAUSE IT'S ALMOST PENTECOST SUNDAY!!!"
Yeah, I'm raising a liturgy nerd...
So anyway, we had to make sure to get as much red as possible into our outfits. John Paul suggested he wear his red sweatpants, but that idea was quickly vetoed in favor of seersucker pants and a red sweater vest. Cecilia's dress is as close as we could come - the flowers look kind of flame-y, right? And I have red shoes, but nothing else...
Picture taking was not our finest this week:
Ohhhhh so awkward... But sadly, it's the best we got!
I was feeling gray and gloomy because the weather was disgusting... So I dressed accordingly?
Shoes: Nine West
Exhaustion: c/o Mary Claire, who decided 3-5 AM was the time to coo and blow raspberries. And one of the lovely things about twins is that you can't tag-team this sort of thing, because Andrew had to snuggle Elizabeth in bed to keep her asleep. Yay.
The kids did NOT wear those hats to Mass - I convinced John Paul he didn't want his tongue of fire getting wet and limp... And Cecilia wanted to wear her raincoat with a hoodie, so she had to take her hat off.
Mass behavior? Cecilia was pretty bad, bad enough to be sent to her room when we got home. John Paul was pretty good, and got a lollipop from the Knights of Columbus on the way out of Mass.
Hopefully I'll have my act together enough to make the kids "Pentecost Sundaes" tonight after dinner. Or maybe I'll fall asleep before we even make it that far...
Linking up with Fine Linen and Purple - go check out some less-dreary Mass-goers!
