Lent -

Okay, thanks to a great post from Danette -- I, too, have decided that I will 'give up' blogging for Lent. It does take away from my evenings quite a bit. This way I can try and focus more on family, chores [not fun, but needed...it'll be sacrificial] and most importantly - prayer.

I'd really like this Lent to be more intimate. Simple, yet meaningful. I have big plans in my heart. I hope I don't fumble.

I'll take some pictures of the "Lenten Mercy Cross" and post them on the previous post as an update. But then that should be it until Easter Sunday or Easter Monday!

Since I won't be blogging here are some things in advance:

Happy Birthday to my Dad!! [7777 -- heeheehee -- inside joke, not to do with his age :O) ]

Our Beautiful Joseph will be a whopping 3 yo on the 22nd of February
And - our gorgeous daughter, Dani, will be 12yo on March 13th - Happy Birthday Dani Girl!!

There are 2 more on Easter Sunday this year: My sister's birthday and Paul's mom's birthday. So Happy Birthday to both of you as well! [only my sister will get her birthday wish here - goes back to that whole 'no family reading the blog business' LOL]
Tonight is Mom's Night Out for our homeschool group, so we'll be going out - and pigging out ::haha:: - for Mardi Gras.
So...I suppose I'll see you in 40ish days!
Have a very holy Lenten season and Happy Easter in advance!
