My first tattoo

After 25 years of wanting a tattoo, I finally got one today. I think it’s fitting that my first one is of Mary’s fingerprint over my heart. She has touched my heart in so many ways.

Real Christmas tree

After 20 years of Christmases together, we bought our first live tree tonight. We brought 4 of our children with us. It was a pleasant experience. And our home smells like a forest. 🙂

Waterton trip

We took a family trip to Waterton today. We hiked Bear’s Hump, checked out Cameron Falls, and hiked Red Rock Canyon. For me and Aisling, Aoibheann, and Quillan, it was our first time hiking Bear’s Hump.

Choo choo

During family scripture study this morning, we each took turns reading a verse. When it was Quillan’s turn, someone would read a word aloud, and he would repeat it. His verse was John 20:28.

And Thomas answered and said unto him, My Lord and my God.

When the person reading said, “Thomas”, however, Quillan said “choo coo” instead.
