Washington State March for Life Photos

On January 18, we participated in the March for Life in Olympia. We were all very impressed with Archbishop Sartain (Seattle's new Archbishop) and the number of people who were present to witness to the sanctity of human life. The local Catholic radio station reported that there were approximately 9000 participants.

The children were thrilled to meet Archbishop Sartain (and so were we). He took the time to ask each of the children their names and shook Patrick's hand for a few minutes, or rather Patrick shook the Archbishop's hand for a few minutes.

Below is a slideshow from the March.

Who Will Protect Her?

A few nights ago, Catherine brought Elizabeth into my bedroom, saying, "Elizabeth is scared." I took her in my arms and the following conversation took place:

Me:  "You don't need to be scared. Mommy will protect you."

Elizabeth: "No!"

Me: "Daddy's here. He can protect you, too."

Elizabeth (a little louder): "No! Jesus protect me."

New Year's Dinner

Traditionally, our New Year's dinner consists of spiral-sliced ham, scalloped potatoes, vegetables, salad, Martinelli's Sparkling Apple Juice, and eggnog.  On December 31, my husband went to the store and purchased the necessary items for our meal. However, in our family, the birthday child decides the menu for his special day. Therefore, on New Year's Day, my husband asked our youngest son, "What do you want for dinner?" Our little boy responded, "Chinese food."  Our son might have started a new tradition. We will see what he wants for his birthday dinner next year.
