My Sunday Best, Volume 70: Lobby Fun!

Happy September! We've been enjoying a taste of fall weather this week, but I think today we're back to our usual warm September temperatures. I took advantage of the cool weather to get lots of things canned this week, though - 20 quarts of applesauce (many thanks to my mother-in-law for her help!), 8 jars of blackberry jam, and 4 pints of salsa. We've still got quite a few apples left on our tree and a bunch more that we picked from it a few days ago, but I'm pretty pleased with the quantity of sauce we got done for only the cost of jars (I needed new ones since we were almost out) and electricity!

Andrew is home today, so we were all going to try to go to an early Mass, but the kids slept in... Then Edith took a teeny tiny worthless "nap" and we decided to go to the 10:30 instead of the 12:30. But there was an incident with shoes on the way out the door and Elizabeth was screaming so much in the car there was NO way she was going to recover, so I removed her and left her home with my mom. Off to a great start already!!!

Edith lasted at Mass until the Gospel, and then spent the remainder trying to eat dried grass and leaves off the floor in the lobby, trying to pull up on things she shouldn't (holy water dispenser! holy water font! door stop! random suitcase under the rosary table for the visiting mission!) and babbling and fussing. On the plus side, Andrew only had to remove Mary Claire and Peter once during Mass and they were good the rest of the time.

We've got relatives in town and are hoping to get out and enjoy some good (?) weather today after yesterday's misty rainy outdoor day. Here's hoping for sunshine!

Just a few ground rules before you link up:

1. Please include a photo of what you wore to church this week.
