Feast of the Immaculate Conception

On December 8th catholics celebrate the Feast of the Immaculate Conception. My daughters American Heritage Girls troop, which is sponsored by the CCW at Saint Mary’s of the Immaculate Conception, put out luminaria¬†for the evening mass. It was a fun service project and a beautiful sight! Here are a few photo’s I took.

Honoring Those Who Served America

On Saturday October 15, 2016 my daughter’s American Heritage Girl Troop and our brother Trail Life Troop had the privilege of thanking veterans who were visiting the National Museum of the Marine Corps as part of an Honor Flight. To say that it was a moving experience doesn’t do justice to the memorable¬†morning we had. I am sure that the young men and women will not soon forget the morning spent honoring those who served. Also, a special thank you to museum volunteer Trish, who made sure we were in the right place and gathered a few Quantico Marines for the big send off. She was absolutely wonderful!

 

Birthday Fun

The bond that links your true family is not one of blood, but of respect and joy in each other’s life. Rarely do members of one family grow up under the same roof.¬† Richard Bach

ARRRRGH!

Our annual pool party was dedicated to the members of the family with big birthdays this year, 30, 40, and 60! So we threw a Pirate Bash!

 

A Few of My Favorite Christmas Photos.
