Guys! This is our @chewslifeshop rosary. Mary Jane received it as a baptism gift and it has been well used and well loved ever since. It’s indestructible (if our boys are any indication, and believe me, they’ve tried) and easy to clean; the colors are great and it’s fun to hold and/or chew. And this isn’t a sponsored post. I just love this rosary. But when I gushed to Shannon about how great her rosaries are, she offer to do a holiday giveaway for you guys! So sweet. So, there’s a $30 gift certificate up for grabs on IG and one on FB. All you have to do is check out the Chews Life Shop and comment with what you’d choose if you win! Shannon will pick a winner tomorrow!
When you have teenaged brothers, sometimes this happens to you in the morning before they leave for school. 💁♂️🤷♂️
This is not actually George taking a selfie. But I kind of love that it looks like it. 👶🤳 #babyselfie #hewokeuplikethis

I gave our Little Flowers lesson today about recognizing what brings us not just pleasure, not just happiness, but true joy. I think I really nailed it. #lulusjoylist 🧜♀️ 📚 👫👩👩👧👧👨👨👧👧👶#goldfishcrakers
Tenth birthday dinner request: twice baked potato mice 🥔 🐭, asparaGUS, and buffalo burgers 🍔. Foodie or weirdo? Or both . . . ?
Rolled self over. Wonders now what?
She currently says “mushin muffin” for English muffin, “walla bolla” for water bottle, and calls this cereal “shiken fakes” and believes it to be made of chicken. I love two year old talk. So close and yet so hilarious. I’m always a little sad when they start saying “thumbs” instead of “flums.” What funny almost rights are your kids saying?
According to Gus, this new liturgical calendar I made has “all the cool features, like Mondays, and July, and Christmas.” With an endorsement like that how could you NOT want one? 😂😂😂 But seriously, I designed this calendar because I wanted something to tide us over until my liturgical year book comes out. It’s got all the feast and fast days of the universal calendar, plus all my favorite more obscure saint’s days. And the images feature the traditional Catholic monthly devotions. I put the link in my profile, if you’re curious. It goes December 2017 to December 2018, and takes a week or two to arrive, so act now, blah blah blah. The publisher has a coupon code going through Nov 9 LULU15 (all caps) for 15% off. Enjoy!
Our All Saints Day Pageant was today! We’ve got St. Margaret of Antioch bursting out of her Dragon; Shadrach, Meshach, Abednego, and the Angel in the Fiery Furnace; and the bones of St. James the Greater rowing themselves to Spain. #catholiccostume #catholic #feastofallsaints
Happy All Souls Day! Did YOU pray for the dead today? 🙏💀😇 #feastofallsouls #liturgicalliving #catholic
Eternal rest grant to them, O Lord, and let perpetual light shine upon them. May the souls of the faithful departed, through the mercy of God, rest in peace. Amen. Day one of the Holy Souls Indulgence accomplished, in the car, on the way home from picking up Jack in the Box for the feast day. (Because even I don’t manage punny food for every one!) #feastofallsaints #holysoulsinpurgatory #liturgicalliving #inthecar
Happy Halloween! We hit the vigil Mass of All Hallows and are off to trick or treat as Wonder Woman, a Plague Doctor (that’s Bobby, he made the mask himself), and a crew from Oz. Jack volunteered to stay home and watch the game/the sleeping Tin Man. #halloween #gododgers
George can barely contain his excitement about the fact that I finally got his birth story typed up and on the blog. Answered prayers gone awry 🙏😱, boggarts 👻👩⚕️, potentially deadly cherry pits 🍒💀, it’s all in there. Link to the blog is in my profile.
Frankie’s spooky sixth birthday party! Complete with graveyard cake with bones inside, hot dog mummies, “finger sandwiches” 😏, eyeball punch, outdoor Dodger baseball, and a Wizard of Oz bounding bunch. #crankyfrankiet #bytheskinofhisteeth
Making some blueberry/lemon sorbet eyeballs to float in the punch at Frankie’s “just regular spooky” birthday party tomorrow. In the event that I don’t cancel it, because he is THIS CLOSE. 👌😬🙏 #crankyfrankiet
Teenaged me could never have guessed how charmed adult me would be by spit bubbles. 👶🛁😍#ilikethebubbles
Happy birthday, Frankie. We love your crazy you. 😘😘😘😎
Obligatory 90 degree day at the pumpkin patch. 🎃 🔥 🎃 🔥 #socallife #homeschoollife
