Friday Favorites - 1st Communion And Some New Winged Friends

Happy Friday Foxy Friends! Excited that it's the weekend work has been busy lately, so looking forward to the weekend for sure. 

Something I'm reminiscing about:

A friend lent us this toy box that her father built for her kids and grandkids and since her grandkids were grown she gave it to us, and this past weekend she asked for it back so she could give it to her newest grandsons, who I believe is about the same age as Baby Fox was when we took this photo.

Putting all of the stickers on it.

And this past weekend....he's getting so big. *Not me in the corner silently crying*

Anyway, onto Friday Favorites.
We'll start with the biggest thing, which happened last Sunday, Mini Fox received her First Holy Communion. We are so proud of her and all of her dedication the last couple of years. At our church they do a few kids at each mass the month of May, so we signed up with a good friend for May 2nd at 9am. It was the first time we had been back to our church. We went once to my parents church to Easter, but the first time receiving communion since before the pandemic started, it was so nice to be back.

I had to make us some matching masks of course.

This is a Father Jimmy from Notre Dame, who flew out to surprise our friends. It was a great surprise and he was a welcomed part of Mass. 

And actually genuine smile from Baby Fox, don't get those very often. He was so excited and happy for Mini Fox.

Not sure how we missed getting a picture of the 4 of us...hmmm...

This girl earned her long awaited yellow belt. We finally felt comfortable letting her go in person to take the test and she rocked it. We're so proud of her.

I love watching this kid grow and learn a sport that he loves so much. Watching 2 games a weeks, we get a lot of watch time in, but I wouldn't have it any other way.

Also watching football games is fun too. He's 6 days a week in sports and loves it. Although says that next time he only wants to do one sport. We signed him up for both thinking one of them has to work out, and then both of them were a go, so we went with it.

So whenever Mr. leaves for a trip, something always goes wrong with the house...this time? He left for 3 days and my closet fell apart. We werent home when it happened, we would to have loved to hear what that sounded like!

Had to empty it all out so that we could get it fixed...yep that's a mattress on our floor. Remember when I told you we got a new mattress? Well we hated it and ended up returning it, back to Costco it went. I think we figured out we are Spring Mattress people. We've tried Sleep Number bed, returned it, and now a foam one, and returned that too.

Anyway, back to the closet, shelf is fixed and things are all put away, phew. It was giving my anxiety how messy everything was in our room for a bit. But now all the shoes and dresses are organized, so that's good.

Other things that happened:
We have some new friends. Hopefully we get to see them turn into Butterflies.

This catepillar was walking up this wall, so Mini Fox decided she was going to sit and watch it for awhile.

He made it to the ceiling, and is now a beautiful green Chrysalis. Now we wait.

And one more friend, so three in all. Fingers crossed we see some nature happening.

Speaking of nature, did I tell you I am a farmer now? Looks things are growing! The things on the right are carrots, and we just got gifted from Mini Fox's teacher some seedlings. That I planted and now has many more leaves then it did when it came to me and I haven't killed it consider me Farmer Sarah.

Eating our carrots.

Our neighbor has a huge garden and let the kids come over to harvest all of their potatoes.

They wanted me to cook them separate from the ones that they pulled up. So I did.

With baseball comes a lot of grass stains and dirt. In case you wanted to know how I get all the stains out with little to no effort, I use this. It got this grass/dirt out of Baby Fox's pants. Looks like it also comes in a spray bottle form too, haven't tried that one but I'm sure it works just as great. I put it on rub it in for a few seconds then gather my other laundry and wash as normal. I do make sure the stain gets out before drying. Once you dry it in the dryer it's harder to get stains out, so I check and if I need to do it again, and wash before I dry. 

Last week I told you about my favorite jean shorts, I might have bought them in black this week, still waiting to get them in the mail. But I am sure they are going to be just as great. If I like them just as much, I'll probably get a light wash color, then I'll be done getting new sorts for the season. haha.

Alright I think that is all I have to share this week. Hope you all have a great weekend!
