The double latte! I had a mocha but not a double. Okay enough silly talk. I have lots to blog about today!

Finally, we are Catholic in this house so today being the day before Ash Wednesday we had two breakfasts. We ate eggs in the morning and pancakes for lunch! As you can see above my girls LOVED the pancakes, and so did Steve and I. Mmmm blueberry pancakes with banana and maple syrup. So we enjoyed our double breakfast today and have figured out what we will be doing for Lent this year. I have a few things I'm personally going to try to do and a one big one that the family will be doing. So I'm hopeful that I'll manage to get them all done this year. I've had years where I managed to do most of them and others where I forget and they fall aside faster than a new year's resolution! So this year I'm home, and I am really hoping that I remember them, especially the family one, and try to find some time to focus on my relationship with God. Maybe I should stop listening to hip hop while I run and try to use that time to think.
So to help me keep them straight here are my Lent Goals and my Family's Lent goals:
- No chocolate.
- No pop
- No meat on Fridays. (family)
- Read the New Testament.
- No Facebook while the girls are awake (so 6:30am-ish until 8pm).
