My church had a Mardi Gras party in the basement and confession going on in the church. It’s a great way to start off Lent.
Billy’s birthday is tomorrow. This is the first time I can recall it has fallen on Ash Wednesday. Fortunately, he is old enough to understand and accept relocating his celebration to a non-fasting day. We had some friends over today for pancakes with toppings like strawberries, blueberries, chocolate chips and whipped cream.
I’m not much of a cake decorator, but every birthday I give it another shot. For Billy, I made a cake to look like a Cincinnati Bengals jersey. I do not approve of his fondness for this team (hello, Cleveland Browns? GB Packers?), but because I love him, I will decorate a cake the way he likes. I think it came out ok.
Carson Palmer is the quarterback for the Bengals, and Billy wrote him a letter inviting him to his party. We never heard back. Carson, you missed a lot of fun, especially once the boys started playing with Billy’s new double barrel Nerf shotgun.
For Lent, I’m limiting my time online to an hour a day, so I probably won’t blog every day…not that I currently blog every day. I’m also turning comments off, but my email address is up top.
Have a blessed Lent.
