Christmas is Cancelled

Today was the day my side of the family was gathering to do our Christmas celebration. Many of my siblings travel to visit with in-laws (myself included) on Christmas. We had to stay home with the rest of the family celebrates without us. Nod, I'm glad Mrs. Nod is on the mend, I just wish you'd kept those Nod-germs at home. As a result of those Nod-germs going polska, we had to cancel Christmas.

Immaculate Conception Not Annunciation

So December 8 is not only Elizabeth's birthday, it is a Holy Day of Obligation. All day I knew we were going to mass, but I completely flubbed why. I thought it was the Annunciation. Nope, not. It was the Immaculate Conception.

I guess it's a very Catholic sort of mistake.


Tim made awesome, great, totally rocking cupcakes. He's the man! He loves his little girl! He makes cupcakes, purple frosting and even purple cupcakes! Go Tim!

Purple Frosting, Purple Cupcakes

So, it wasn't hard to make purple frosting at all. I bought some frosting and some food coloring. And Tim made the cupcakes. He made purple frosting and purple cupcakes too!

Elizabeth thoroughly enjoyed her party. Thanks to everyone who came.

Child Birthday Party Planning

Elizabeth is days way from turning three. It's an exciting birthday because she's now old enough and aware enough to understand what a birthday involves. As she explained to her Daddy last night, "It's Advent. My birthday is coming. My birthday. I am excited."

Did I mention that she's speaking in complete sentences now and it's a pleasant surprise?

Anyway, we went to get party supplies for her family birthday party. I thought she would choose a theme like My Little Pony or Dora or something. Instead she liked the idea of so many possibilites but she didn't want to commit. In the end, we went with a party theme of


That was the one steadfast decision she made. She wanted purple plates, napkins, and plastic table covering.

I'm wondering how hard it would be to make purple icing on some cupcakes?
