It's the most wonderful time of the year! It's when Mom and Dad / Grammie and Papa come to our house and we do fun things like go on field trips, read books, play games, eat birthday cake, hold babies, have chip parties (they're a lot like they sound... eat chips and call it a party), and play football. We had a nice week with them... but it always goes to fast. Good news, though - only three more weeks until we see them for Christmas!
(uh... I just realized we only have three more weeks until Christmas and there's a lot to do... still, the visit with Grammie and Papa was fun so let's just concentrate on that)
(p.s. this is the best... being in the kitchen, making supper, and hearing all of this in my house... the books, the games, and all my people)

We like to leave things to the last minute. It's been the Year of Mercy since last November, and the Doors of Mercy close (that sounds terrible... like your opportunity for mercy is being slammed in your face... pretty sure that's not what's happening but I can't think of another way to word that) on November 13. So we drove over to the Cathedral in Hamilton today to see what that was all about. Some better research would have been helpful but, after wandering around and asking about, we found the door, said some prayers, hit up confession, took a picture, and out we went. And now we wait for mercy to fall down on us. I would like it by the brickload, please, God, thanks.
