It’s a jungle in our house!

July 2, 2008

Katie is really becoming obsessed.

She asked me this a.m. if we could have a jungle party tonight. Parties always consist in something that you can throw and some decorations proudly displayed too. Tonight, we had a jungle party. Of course, it had to be a surprise to Nate so all day/evening she was “sneaking” around preparing. You’ll see the leaves she prepared and the monkey that got brought down from the shelf of stuffed animals. With great delight, I pulled out our monkey dinnerware to complete the festivities. Katie closed the blinds and turned off the lights so it could be dark under the trees. Oh yes, we had to “act” like monkeys at dinner too. The backyard play while I cleaned the kitchen included a mist of water from the hose because it was raining in the jungle. “You know mom. The jungle has lots of rain.” My question, how does she know any of this? Backyardigans maybe?  At any rate, in an attempt to share the party with you, here’s a picture.

We also took advantage of a free afternoon and the upcoming holiday to make some fancy chocolate pretzels. Katie wasn’t sure she really liked the effort of having to paint the colored chocolate, but in the end, it was fun! Wish you were here to eat them with us!

Just a few very special prayer requests.

My aunt Sherry is really sick and in the hospital with a staph infection.

A family friend, Fr. Bob, is in the ICU with blood clots moving to his lungs.

My dad had a near fatal accident this afternoon while on a job site. He is unharmed as are his workers.

My cousin was in a car accident a few days ago. They rolled the vehicle upwards of 5 times. Both boys are okay.

God is good, but it’s been quite the reminder of the sacredness of life. Please don’t take your days for granted!!

Check out the link to the right (House Art Journal) to read quite the story of heroism and another reminder to the sanctity of life. Regina is a fantastic writer!
