Yesterday Number Seven turned 15! She had a busy day with family fun at home, a long walk with Number One, a dinner out, movies with siblings and friends and a late night visit from friends for cake and ice cream!

Band Awards Night

Earlier this evening I attended the Band Awards Night at the High School. Number Seven received her medal and also a Music Scholar award--students with high GPA in band receive that one. I am happy and proud of her, as band is hard work and requires discipline and determination. She loves the kids and she has decided Band will be part of her 4 four years of High School!

Baking holiday braids for Bake Sale

I find baking these so wonderful! They take time, but somehow they are such pleasant work to me. They were sold out before 11 o'clock mass--must make more next year! The good thing about being a member of Catholic Daughters is that every charity we donate to is a wonderful cause. The braids went fast, and to think how little I spend on each them--in total just three eggs, a stick of butter and white flour!
