{pretty, happy, funny, real}

~ Capturing the context of contentment in everyday life ~

We went to the Our Lady of Fatima Shrine on Tuesday night with friends.  They do a big lights display for Christmas and it’s really beautiful.  It was a gray and dreary afternoon so this picture doesn’t do it justice (and we didn’t get many pictures of the lights because we were too busy chasing boys around – together we have 5 boys 4 and under!) 
Extra pretty – this is the statue of my girl, St. Dymphna. 
Makes a mama happy.  And that we caught this probably split second on camera is a minor miracle. 

I love that the little shepherd’s face seems to say “just take the picture already, this darn lamb is so heavy!”  And don’t get me started on that angel 🙂 

Nope, no nice picture of both boys possible.  They just weren’t having it. 
At least this week it isn’t a picture of what cupboard they emptied at home (it was the pantry, in case you’re wondering.  They took all the cans and bags of beans into their room – “to make a birthday cake for you, Mama.”)

    Oh, that praying picture is wonderful.
    And, St. Dymphna is someone I need to pray to more often!

    Oh what a beautiful shrine! Will have to add it to my list to visit before we leave NY! Sounds like you did a great job with the boys and it looks like they all had a wonderful time 🙂

    We had a wonderful time with your boys. One of these days we'll have to get there when it is still light outside!

I'd love to hear from you!
