Friday, Friday, Friday

Joining in with Jen....let's hop to it!

1.  Feeling Better
I am happy to say that I am feeling a lot better than I did earlier in the week.  I'm still not "normal"...(not that I ever really am!)...but functional is a plus!(At least most of the day!)

2.  New Saints
This past Sunday was a special day for the Catholic Church.  Popes John XXIII and John-Paul II became saints.  I feel kind of bad for St. John XXIII having to share the day with JPII, who is well known!

3 &4.  Polish Power
I think that I can go out on a limb and say that JPII is Jay's favorite saint.  Jay has always loved reading about John Paul II and his teachings.  (Just ask the teenagers how many JPII tangents Jay has spun...especially over the last few years!)

Jay feels a special connection to JPII because they both share a Polish heritage.  So, since Sunday was such an exciting celebration and a special day for anyone that is Polish, Jay decided to make potato and cheese perogis with the kids using his Polish grandmother's recipe.

Timeout for a little love

#5: Ellie Dressed for the Occasion!

#6:  Divine Mercy 
It was completely fitting that JPII's canonization occurred on Divine Mercy Sunday!  It is one of our family's favorite days!  St. Faustina is one of our favorite saints...and, what a coincidence, she is Polish, too!:)

What better way to celebrate Divine Mercy Sunday then with Divine Mercy sundaes!?!

#7:  Still Not Completely Healthy
The winter illnesses continue to follow us into Spring!  Jon was down for the count 2 days this week with a fever virus.:(  He was sleeping on the couch on Thursday afternoon, and Kate put her kitty next to him, stood in the basket of clean, folded laundry, and was singing him 'Twinkle, Twinkle, Little Star'.  It was so sweet!
 Then she rubbed his head.(Jon is a sound sleeper.)

Here's hoping for a healthy weekend!
