{pretty, happy, funny, real}

~ Capturing the context of contentment of everyday life~

Every Thursday at Like Mother, Like Daughter

Princess P made her First Holy Communion last Sunday. She was very excited and looked beautiful. Of course, I am a little biased. She was thrilled with her dress. I am so glad she liked it. It was a collaboration. She said what she wanted and Mama made it.
I couldn't be more proud of my sweet little girl.


Spring has finally settled in here. Actually in the past few days, summer has hit. We decided to take the kids fishing on one of these wonderful spring days. I guess I should admit it was my husbands idea not mine. I don't fish. I just go and watch.

Lego Man fishing. he was trying to avoid 3 HUGE snapping turtles that were swimming nearby.

Here is a picture of one of the snapping turtles. 

Princess P caught this fish all by herself. She was very excited.
Lego Man didn't catch anything, but daddy caught a trout.


Our kitty had surgery so he has been stuck inside ALL week. He has not been very quiet about his dislike for this fact. He even tried to wake me up at 5:30 by meowing in my face. I think he was hoping I would walk to the door and let him out in a sleepy state. 
Thankfully, I am smarter than him.
He did trick Lego Man though. He took the cat outside for a walk on a leash and the cat got away. He entered a whole too small for Lego Man to fit through so he let the leash go. Mr. Kitty saw his opportunity and seized it. He bolted. Luckily, Lego Man caught him. We thought it was funny that he was outsmarted by a cat.


The kids have been studying Ancient Rome the past few weeks and yesterday we talked about Pompeii.
After our lesson, the kids asked if they could make a small volcano Lego Man got in a science kit.

Linking up with Like Mother, Like Daughter, Thankful Thursday, and Proverbs 31 Thursday


  1. I love all of your photos! Your daughter's dress is absolutely gorgeous! You made that? All I can say is WOW. My daughter is taking sewing lessons. Maybe I need to sign up! :-)

    You had me laughing with your comment about the fishing. When my hubby takes the kids fishing, I just watch, as well, and take pictures, of course. ;-) Your kitty outsmarting your son had me lol. We have two cats and they always have me laughing at something.

    And that volcano is pretty cool.

    Have a great Thursday! God bless, Lisa

    1. Thanks you! I was happy she liked it. I'm glad I'm not the only one that doesn't like to fish. I usually read a book and take pictures. Capturing those memories are important.

  2. Your daughter's dress is absolutely beautiful!!! Wow!

  3. Love these pics, Monique! So happy you are back to blogging regularly...I missed you out here in the blogosphere, friend!

    The dress...breathtaking.
    The rest of the pics are awesome.

    And, ok, you know we are Whovian here, right? If your kids are into Rome and Pompeii, you must must must watch this DW ep:
    season 4, episode 2 The Fires of Pompeei

    We don't get cable so we just watch online or get the DVDs out of the lib. Just reserve season4 at your lib. It's slightly scary for littles with a ridiculous monster lurking about. But the overall feel is great.

    Thanks, Monique!

    1. It's good to be back. Things have been so crazy here lately. I had to look up what a Whovian I don't watch much TV. Glad you stopped by!

  4. So impressed by your sewing! And I'm with you: I'd rather watch than fish, any day!

    1. Thank you! I like just sitting back and enjoying the quiet of nature.
