Last year I did a few posts on our Lenten preparations but since this year Lent is upon us earlier than it has been since 1913, I don't really have time to blog about our preparations and actually do them. So I am going to link to all of my older posts and leave them here for you. If I get a chance before Ash Wednesday, I will update what is different for this year (not too much) and any ideas that I find elsewhere.
Mid-Lent Review (because I like to "keep it real" and let you know how my plans have fared for better or worse)
Right now, I am off to find my keys and get to the fabric store to make some simple winter skirts for the girls because (oh my goodness!) it actually feels like winter here but to look at the store racks you would think it was 90 degrees outside! I know it might be 90 degrees tomorrow, but then it will just get cold again and my sweet little missies are tired of sweats! I love that about them. They do have some winter dresses, but have expressed a preference for skirts and tops that they can mix and match. Quite the little fashion mavens aren't they! They are growing up so fast! :( I am hoping I can talk them into a sweet little pettiblouse and jumper for Easter!
