The girls were so surprised at how homemade pasta is something we can easily do, even if we couldn't quite locate where my antique pasta machine has been stored since the last move. The recipe couldn't be easier: one cup of flour to one egg and little bits of water as needed. The dough is hard and we used the rolling pin and a sharp knife for cutting the strips--and then got creative to hang it to dry until it was time to cook. The result was very positive, as they both exclaimed: "Wow, it tastes like noodles too!"

The three of us spend a lot of time at church on Wednesdays. Number Six helps accompany the children's choir. Number Seven and I both teach CCD, we attend mass and enjoy the parish dinner, followed by choir practice. After choir Number Seven has Youth Group, and I sometimes have Bible Study. We are ready for bed when we arrive home!

I love this image of Saint Valentine so much, so I made a coloring page got my kids--and they each got a color copy I ordered from the local one-hour photo place. We hung them on the hallway! I took photos of some of them.
