Random Tid Bits

  1. We have 2 old TVs. You know ones with antennas, and they look like a box. We'll watch movies and shows on them until they die. Travis and I are not ones that have to have the next best thing. I know the picture would be way more amazing if it was on a flat screen. I have to be honest...I don't care. 

  2. When I went through conformation when I was younger my mom asked me what I wanted? I said, "A rosary!" She said, "But we're not Catholic!" I was raised to be Lutheran. There isn't that much of a difference between Catholics and Lutherans I was told. My cousin's are Catholic. I can tell you their communion is different. Lutherans go up and have a shot glass of wine, and a wafer. The Catholic church I went to had everyone drinking out of the same glass. Catholics had communion much earlier in age than Lutherans. Catholics kneel at times; Lutherans never kneel. Catholics pray to Mary more, Lutherans pray to God and Jesus only. Catholics confess their sins to a Priest, Lutherans confess their sins in prayer. Catholics have Nuns; Lutherans do not. The biggest difference in my mind was the rosary. I wanted one! I was envious of the rosary. I said to my mom, "I know Lutherans don't have the rosary, but they are so artistically interesting!" I never got a rosary. :(

  3. Travis played Macho Man on New Years Eve. Mica loves the song! Isaak and I are sick of hearing him sing it. Every time one of us is online he wants to watch the video. He's so silly!

  4. Our boys are all about fighting this break. Not real fighting, but Lightsaber fighting, wrestling, K-Nex K-Force gun battles in the hallway, boxing, and so on. It's their way of playing. They do all of it with grins on their faces, and laughter coming out of their mouths. I have to admit it's funny watching them. When I'm in the kitchen, and I hear it I want to yell out, "STOP IT NOW!" No one has gotten hurt yet!

  5. Isaak found a book of good behavior coupons in his dresser that I won many moons ago from this blog. The boys have been all about them this week. Each morning for 3 days Isaak's said, "Don't forget about the coupons Mom." On Monday they had to help Grandma clean out her fridge to earn Kindle time. :)

I'm a Lutheran. You have my permission to get a rosary. I'm not sure what you do with them, but a nun could tell you. I went to a preview of an auction years ago with my sister. One of the items was a confessional from a Catholic church. I told her she should get it to put in her foyer, and she could listen to confessions. She didn't. Too bad. It's nice the boys are giggle fighting and not hurt-each-other fighting.

My nephew (adopted) is being raised Lutheran. I find the who eat a wafer and share a glass of wine odd. They did it at his baptism, but my family sat out of that part. We were raised protestant and I also found the rosary to be a beautiful thing. My cousins were raised catholic and thought it was odd that I didn't have a rosary.

That kind of behavior is normal young male behavior. I can remember doing that kind of thing with my brothers fifty years ago.

Confessing that I have more than 2 old-fashioned TVs and they just will not die. My large one I will keep for sure because I love using it for exercise DVDs. Never mind I cannot lift the thing!

I was raised Lutheran too and grew up 2 houses down from a Catholic church, where my best friend attended. I never wanted a rosary but as a kid didn't completely understand their faith at the time.

My kids were both baptized and got their first communions as Catholics. I am not sure if I am going to stick with it and get them confirmed, though.
