{p,h,f,r} Epiphany Edition

IT'S NOT THURSDAY!!! I know. I've been telling myself that for two days. But for some reason, I keep thinking it IS Thursday and I  keep wanting to write this post. So I'm going to give in and write it, since Thursdays have become our super busy days, and just link up with all the lovely ladies who are actually enjoying their Wednesdays (like the sane rational creatures that they are) tomorrow!
I got this shot of my sweet girl in her beautiful Epiphany dress just before we headed to Mass. Why yes, those are the wise men and camels on her smocked top! This was a Zulily find from last year that I saved and it fit her beautifully!

It makes me so happy that my children still like to present the wise men's presents to the Baby Jesus. Our gold, frankincense and myrrh are from this set and are teeny tiny so they fit in perfectly with the size of our nativity set.


Every year, when I print out the pages we use for our house blessing, I ask The Professor to wipe off the old markings to make way for the new. This year, he didn't need a step stool.

It's so hard going from break back into school work! It's nice to be able to ease the transition for them a little bit by making the children a mid-morning energy booster! Graham crackers with strawberry cream cheese and a pot of coffee! It was decaf with a few scoops of hot cocoa added.

  1. So precious! She's really a doll baby!

  2. I LOVE the embroidery on the beautiful! She is too cute.:) Thanks for sharing the link!

  3. Oh my, I love your polish pot!

    1. I love it too! It was a birthday gift from my husband a few years ago.

  4. I love the dress, just love it. Smocking is so beautiful, my mother used to smock our dresses and I always felt so special in them.
    The tea pot looks so cozy, what a great snack idea!
    My boys are all getting taller than me quickly, only 3 left that I am taller than!
    I so enjoyed your post today, I mean Wednesday, LOL!

  5. Love all the pictures, especially Cupcake in that adorable dress!

  6. Love the 3 kings dress! Do you write the year and initials of the 3 kings on your door frame? My parents do that, I've been told its a Polish thing :)

  7. She is so sweet. Thanks for sharing her with us!

  8. I love that your kids like coffee. There is another homeschool family at my parish who have several children older than mine, and I often see the teen boys fixing themselves cups of coffee after Mass at the coffee and donuts gathering, ha.

    And that dress is beautiful!! How fun to have an Epiphany dress!
