7 Quick Takes Friday - February 28, 2014

Happy un-birthday to all the leap year babies out there! I think my aunt (who has been married for 20 years and has 3 kids) is turning 10 or so. :)

Violet turns 4 on Wednesday. Ack! Since her birthday falls on a penitential day of fasting and abstinence (poor kid - she was born on a Friday in Lent, too), we'll likely celebrate it the day before. I wish I could get her Frozen for her birthday but it doesn't come out for a few more weeks. (I could pre-order it, but she doesn't really understand the concept and would get upset that she couldn't watch it.) The Hunger Games: Catching Fire comes out on Friday, but I don't think she'd really appreciate that one, either. :P

Our parish apparently has a chapter of the Junior Catholic Daughters! They're hosting a mother-daughter tea this weekend, so the girls and I are going (Peter is also tagging along).

Chris Zajdzinski is speaking at our parish tonight, so we're going to go see his talk and then have pizza in the social hall afterwards (it's sponsored by the Religious Ed program). I love conversion stories so I'm really looking forward to it (and I don't have to cook, woohoo!).

Collin and I have a "date day" planned on Sunday. We're going to go hiking and then out to eat. Peter is coming with but the other kids will be with my brother-in-law. I'm not sure where we'll hike yet -- usually we go to the White Tank Regional Park, but we were considering going farther afield and perhaps exploring Cave Creek or Estrella Mountain.

Grandma Violet & Peter
My grandma flies back to North Dakota today. We already miss her so much!!

Peter had a great orthopedist appointment last week. His doctor said that his feet look perfect and that we can transition to nighttime wear only starting on March 12! I'm counting down the days!
