Ice Storm January 2009

We had some severe weather at the end of January. The ice was absolutely beautiful but it did some damage. The seal on our front window broke and we had water running into the house. Chris did all the repair work himself. Like millions of others, we lost power from Wed to Sat (thanks to Andrea's mom and dad for providing a warm house during that time). We are kind of getting use to no power for extended periods of time. At least this time we didn't have to worry about food spoilage since you could just put it in a cooler outside. Andrea's mom and dad lost the top of their tree and Eleanor took a spill on the ice and busted open her chin. Before the storm got bad, Chris took a couple of the girls sledding down near the pond in our neighborhood. Amanda jumped off the sled just before she went out on the frozen lake. I have attached footage of them retriving the sled.

Preparation for First Reconciliation

The Catholic sacrament of Reconciliation is where we find God's unconditional forgiveness which helps us forgive others. Bridget took her preparation for her first Reconciliation very seriously. This was posted inside her cubby for easy access.
