I love when kids are invited to weddings. We had a tiny wedding but Greg's nieces and nephews were there and their uninhibited dancing made it more fun. Love the pics.


They are getting married in June. It will be fun. The wedding Mass will be in the chapel of his high school alma mater (all boys' school -- also my husband and other sons' school) and the reception is at the adjoining commons, which happens to be a beautiful venue.


Hi Julie, It was a great weekend! We also had some kids at our wedding. I miss you also!!!


This was a big family whose oldest daughter got married. A lot of their friends have big families. So , there were a lot of kids! They were all so well behaved though. The dance floor was full with little ones and teenagers and grown ups. It was a blast! Good for you for inviting kids. It will be a fun wedding!! When are they getting married?


So glad you blogged, it's been way too long!! Love the giggly pictures!! We had kids at our wedding, and our kids have been to quite a few weddings, but a lot of them were because people in Mike's family tend to get married more than once :?/ (that's supposed to be like a yikes emoji) Miss you, have a blessed Advent!


It sounds like you had the perfect Thanksgiving weekend! Love that little guy giggling.

And I'm so glad you wrote about how special it was taking your children to a wedding reception. My husband's family has never invited our children (any children) to weddings, and so we never went to any. But when my son became engaged to be married, we said "we're inviting children!" I think children are a fun part of weddings.

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
