Merry Christmas!

From Boy, do I wish I could chomp into one of those. :) There are some ridiculously good-looking cakes and cupcakes out there on the internet. Why can't I have any friends who make stuff like this? And then give it away? To me? :)

I might not post for a while-- but hey, eight posts today! A record for me. Of course it was mostly done by ripping off other people's stuff. :) I'll be busy all day tomorrow and then the day after some friends and I are leaving bright and early for a four-day road trip to Sacramento. We'll be at an FSSP parish called St. Stephen the First Martyr on the feast of St. Stephen, December 26, and they're going to have a Solemn High Mass at 7 pm for the occasion, which we're all excited about seeing. Our plan for the long drive up there (if they haven't closed the Grapevine) is to listen to a series of lectures by Fr. Brian Mullady and arrive smarter than when we left. Now I'm going to take a break from present-wrapping to go for a walk and look at Christmas lights before they're all turned off. May you all have a blessed Christmas season!

Which lecture series of Fr. Mullady do you have? I love him. :)Some days my pea-brain can absorb his teaching and other days- not so much.

You know, I don't know the name of the series-- it belongs to a friend and she popped it in the player without telling us the name. In fact there may have been some individual talks. Anyway he was talking a lot about the Church, and about Vatican II, and to be honest I was sleep-deprived and so wasn't awake for all of it. I too can sometimes absorb his teaching and sometimes not. :)
