Found: One Knit Baby Hat!!!

We just got back from a night out at our favorite sushi restaurant. Friend Paul asked us to meet him for dinner and we decided to use the rest of Dom’s birthday gift certificate and have a little pre-Christmas treat. As an unexpected bonus, when we walked in the door, the hostess greeted us very […]

The belief of children

In a timely post Adoro Te Devote writes about children and belief. This begins to get at the link between fantasy and mysticism. I’m still stretching to articulate exactly what I want to say.

University of Dallas Video

My sister sent me the link to this awesome video about UD. It says exactly what I would want to say to any high school student considering UD (except it does it better). It brought tears to my eyes. It captures perfectly what UD is to those of us who love her. Even if you […]

Sleepy Bella

Yesterday we went to breakfast after mass with Dom’s sister and her family. It was about the time we’ve been giving Bella some cereal and fruit and she was getting a bit antsy so I gave her a piece of my toast to gum. I was chatting with my brother in law for a while […]
