Fun YG Pictures

Yesterday afternoon some members of the YG went bowling in the afternoon (the girls won!) After dinner we went to the YG Mass at St. Mary's in CP.
One our way home we stopped in the park to take a few pictures as the sun set

Always have to have a fun picture or two!

Gluten Free Brownies

This Easter we had a good friend I have gotten to know through my work, for our family dinner on Sunday. Beth also came to a few of our Church services with us that weekend. It was a joy to get to know her better. A few of our family members (myself and Beth included) have health issues when we eat wheat so I made this recipe of Nana's. They are delicious... and very quick to whip up!

Gluten Free Brownies

1/3 Cup Butter (I used coconut oil)

2 squares unsweetened Chocolate

1 cup white Sugar

2 Eggs

1 tsp. Vanilla

2/3 cup white Rice Flour

1/8 tsp baking Powder

1/8 tsp. Salt

Melt chocolate and butter over low heat in a saucepan. Stir in sugar well and let sit for 5 minutes. Beat in eggs and vanilla and beat until light and fluffy. Stir together dry ingredients thoroughly and add to pan. Do not over stir.

Pour into well greased 8x8 pan. Bake at 350 degrees for 25 minutes or until they are pulling away from the edge of the pan. These freeze well.

Passion Sunday+

Today is Passion (Palm) Sunday. It's when Jesus rode into Jerusalem on a donkey. When He started the most important week in the year. Holy week.

Holy Week is the week between Palm Sunday and Easter Sunday. In that week we have Maunday Thursday, Good Friday and Holy Saturday. It's a wonderful time to explore more thoroughly Jesus' Passion and Death on the Cross.

Our family goes to Mass the four days leading up to Easter. It's a great experience. I would very much encourage anyone to go ... you walk out a different person at the end of the four days, on Easter Sunday.

The fact that Jesus died for our sins makes me forever thankful, and I am praying that throughout this holy week you will experience Jesus like never before.

God bless+

Palm Sunday Art

This morning as it was Passion Sunday, we had lots of palm branches to bring home. I made some palm "art" this afternoon. Here are a few of the best ones.

Back to the 80's

On Thursday evening, we went to see my cousin Leah perform in the lead female role at her school play "Back to The 80's"! She did a great job. Here is a picture of her with a few other cast members.
