Sorry for the confusion

With this blog makeover I have been going back to the beginning and attaching labels to my posts.  Last night I came across a post from 4 years ago when we were starting the process of adopting Gemma.  I had a post announcing her adoption that never got published.  I thought, that is weird and hit publish thinking it would just stick it according to the date it was written. 

Well to my shock it posted as the most recent post! lol  It took me a couple of minutes to figure it out and delete it.  I guess those of you that have my blog link on your blog, the title still says "Adopting Again"!  I started getting private messages last night asking where the post went and wanting all the details, Haha

We have no plans to adopt again.   We have two old beater cars that we just had to replace finally and a son heading to a private Christian college/film school.  I will never say never though, learned my lesson with that one already. ;)

I will say it got a lot of peoples attention checking out my new blog.  

 Have a Safe and Happy New Year!

This was a beautiful sight Christmas Day

I just love seeing our church decorated like this during Christmas.  Wish I could have captured the grandness of it better but I did not want to go back further and get a bunch a people in the picture and distract from the beauty.

There is a part in the Mass where the sun comes through an upper window and hits Father just right. It makes him glow right during the Consecration.  I plan on bringing my camera next Sunday again and sitting in the front row to capture this. I hope I can even get the smoke from the incense as it rises in the sun rays. I tried to get this shot today but we were not sitting in the front row and I did not want to disturb people during the Mass. I took one picture but did not like the way I had to crop it or frame it. I also metered on Father's face which blew him out and made the rest of the picture too dark. Next week I will meter further down off his face to even the light and adjust my settings better.  Always learning and practicing. 

Have a blessed and safe New Year!
