Linda, Your Jennie is wonderful. That says a lot about you, you know ;0) God Bless you!

Linda R

You have a beautiful family and I have enjoyed the pictures.
I hope you enjoy the calf - she is a cutie.
Finally, I must agree with Barbara, that Jennie Cooper is a good one. I should know. I have the honor and great joy of being her mother!!
May the New Year bring you Health, Healing and Happiness.


Hi Barbara,
Putzing!! Yes, I do that a lot. And I do feel extremely blessed to have a husband who cooks, he is a really good cook to boot! hope you all feel better soon. We had the flu here for weeks and it was not fun. It slowly moved through the house.
I am going to try Picasso, I forgot about them...
And Jennie...I love her!! The calf is adorable. I feel bad that she is alone in this cold weather :0(
Thank you for commenting!! I am going to go check out your site right now.


Putzing with a z -- one of my favorite words. :-)

What a gift you have in a husband who cooks!

Enjoy these new year days... My company all just went home and I'm going to try to stretch out the next four. We, most of us, have colds and it's snowing, and going to keep snowing all day. Just need a fire. :-)

PS I have used Picasso for making collages, but I find it way too time consuming.

PPS I am a fairly new reader to your blog and was so pleased to pop over from Jennie Cooper's blog yesterday to see you bought one of her calfs. She a good one that Jennie Cooper!

About Me

  • Hi, my name is Kirsten. I am married to my best friend and we have nine awesome children including our little saint in heaven, Thomas Joseph. We are Catholic, loving, living, and learning about our faith every day. We just moved to a fixer upper farm here in beautiful Kentucky. We also homeschool some of our children. I really enjoy COFFEE, reading, gardening, running, and knitting. I try to enjoy, laundry and cleaning bathrooms and sweeping floors. But what I really love is to be home, with my husband and children, living this life. This blog is where I write about the good stuff (mostly). Thanks for stopping by!

Prayer to St. Joseph

  • PRAYER TO ST. JOSEPH THE WORKMAN Composed by Pope St. Pius X O glorious St. Joseph, model of all those who are devoted to labor, obtain for me the grace to work conscientiously, putting the call of duty above my natural inclinations, to work with gratitude and joy, in a spirit of penance for the remission of my sins, considering it an honor to employ and develop by means of labor the gifts received from God, to work with order, peace, moderation and patience, without ever shrinking from weariness and difficulties, to work above all with purity of intention and detachment from self, having always death before my eyes and the account that I must render of time lost, of talents wasted, of good omitted, of vain complacency in success, so fatal to the work of God. All for Jesus, all through Mary, all after thine example, O Patriarch, St. Joseph. Such shall be my watchword in life and in death. Amen.

A Considered Childhood by Elizabeth Foss

  • As much as I am able, every day, I will ensure that my child will: * Live the Liturgy * Experience loveliness * Breathe deeply: Fresh air and exercise * Serve others * Listen to, contemplate, and exchange ideas. * Develop expressive skills. * Practice logical reasoning. Math. * Receive focused attention and affection
