My Sunday Best, Volume 91: Happy Birthday, Cecilia!

Happy Sunday! And happy 7th birthday to our sweet Cecilia! We've got a birthday party after Mass so I'll post now and update later.

It's later!

After I took a picture of Cecilia before Mass, Elizabeth and John Paul decided *they* needed individual shots, too! Fine.



Yup, they're cute!


Edith was still napping when we left, so I never managed to get into my room to put on any makeup, and then I decided that was fine because hey, it's okay for the kids to see that sometimes I leave the house without putting on makeup and it's not the end of the world!

What was the end of the world was when I reprimanded a child for snorting and sniffling loudly all through Mass, tried to send said child to the bathroom to deal with the issue, and then had to deal with a crying child in the pew for most of the remainder of Mass. All things considered, really not that bad compared to many, many worse experiences we've had!

Elizabeth decided that this week she wanted to pay perfect attention to everything going on at Mass, and it was lovely. Just the sweetest! If you attend the Extraordinary Form, this book is SUCH a gem and I wish we had had it years ago when we started exploring this side of the faith. I'm learning SO MUCH. The kids too, obviously, but they pick up on all of this way faster than I do.

After Mass we brought some friends home for a low-key birthday party for Cecilia - popcorn, hot chocolate, Mardi Gras beads, masks, and king cake! I'm so thankful nobody has high expectations for birthday parties around here...



Your turn!

Post your outfit details & links or not, regale us all with your children's antics, reflect deeply on the readings, or just do a straight picture post - anything goes as long as you actually wore your outfit to church. The link-up is open until Friday, so you've got plenty of time to add your post!

Just a few ground rules before you link up:

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

2. Please link back to this post in the body of your post, so your readers know where to find other posts (posts not mentioning "My Sunday Best" or not linking back to this post will be subject to removal).

3. Please visit some other posts in the link-up & leave a nice comment - this is all about affirming each other and building community, not just link dropping :)

4. Make sure the link you add is a link to your specific post or instagram picture (hashtag #mysundaybest and mention me in your caption, @rosiehill425 so I don't miss it!), not just your blog address.


5. Enjoy, and thanks for linking up!
