WIWS - Happy Trinity Sunday!

Did you know it only takes like, 7 seconds to create a facebook page for your blog?  Apparently so...  So I did it so that I don't awkwardly post links to my posts on my facebook wall because it feels so strange doing that!  Here's the page, if you want to follow along:  A blog for my mom

Aaaaaaaaannyway...

Here's how our mornings look on our way out the door:
 
 
Andrew gets the babies in their car seats while I try (and fail) to focus the camera (look! detail shot of my skirt!).
 
 
The closest this man will get to participating in WIWS - he also wore a navy-and-pink striped bow tie, although the jacket was off for Mass because he was wearing Elizabeth in the Ergo.

Neither of the big kids cared about being in the picture with me until they heard the beep of the self-timer.  John Paul came DASHING in from the playroom but he got in the picture, by golly!


I rarely wear anything other than my pearl earrings, but I dug out a 3-color pearl necklace that I got in college to celebrate Trinity Sunday appropriately!

 
Black, white, and pink.  Remember 2005, when those illusion necklaces were big?  Yeah, I still like it :)  And it's held up to some serious baby grabbing all day!

Elizabeth

 
Mary Claire, in a distinctly less-modest outfit (she had socks and a cardigan, but this is a post-Mass shot)...


 
And there you have it - you've seen the skirt (eShakti) and the shoes (DSW), the shirt is TJ Maxx.
 
Temporary tattoos were our form of bribery this week - you'll never guess who didn't get one (Cecilia) and who just scraped by (John Paul)!
 
Linking up with Fine Linen and Purple as always!

  1. Looks like Cecilia got to wear her "new" $2 consignment store hat! And very attractive it is, too.

    She's so adorably cute that one would never suspect that she'd be so recalcitrant sometimes. And then so pitiful when consequences actually occur. And then so oblivious and cheerful two minutes later!

  3. I love your outfit! And I'm so impressed that the necklace held up to pulling! Mae snaps my necklaces regularly!

    1. The fishing line (or whatever it is) definitely holds up well! I'm thankful that they haven't managed to break any of my necklaces yet :)

  4. Gah! So much cuteness. If I could trade wordrobes with anyone I know, I would pick you.

  7. I feel like there should be more temporary tattoos in this post...and maybe a future post of my own.
    Plus, I always love the out takes from your photos. Keep up the good work.

    Your outfit is lovely and props for accessorizing to fit the feast :)

  9. Temporary tattoos as a Mass bribe are an awesome idea. I love it and will probably steal it for next week. I love that skirt, too, but I'm not going to steal that. Because you know, that would be creepy. :-)

    1. Imagine all the amazing tattoos you could get for Super Sam! I'm excited :)

  10. You should have made your husband participate! I made mine pose this week (much to his chagrin!). If I had some adorable little kids around here, I'd make them do it with me every Sunday. But I don't--and I got tired of posing alone! :)

    You and your gang look great, as always!

    1. Well, he's usually getting babies dressed, getting dressed himself, or getting everyone in car seats so there's no time! And it's about to get even tighter, they moved our 9:00 Mass to 8:30!
