Happy Birthday, Pip!

December 11, 2008

What a wonderful day he’s had already!

The Pippinator woke to horribly off-key tone-deaf people serenading his bedside with a rousing chorus of “Happy Birthday”.  Most definitely, a rude awakening.  O; )

Here are pictures so far; I’ll post more as the day marches on.

The of wonderment, contemplating what wonderful treasure awaits inside.

Armor Up!

December 5, 2008

If you’re Catholic and have been on the fence as to how to live it, it’s time to decide.  It’s time for all of us to figure out what we believe, and what we’d die for.

Why it’s time to get off the fence.

How to come back Home.


Pray the Rosary for our Pope, Bishops and Priests, every day.
