WWWS - What all FOUR of us wore!!!

Linking up with the lovely ladies of Fine Linen and Purple for "What I Wore Sunday."

We went to the funeral/memorial service for the beautiful Renee this past weekend, which meant a trip up to Chicago! We stayed with the Abbot's parents and they took some wonderful pictures of our family after Mass on Sunday. :-)




The girls survived the drive both ways. Sister Stinky is actually a pretty good traveler at this point. She can entertain herself for part of the time, and we usually let her watch a movie on our Kindle for the other part of the time. On this trip I introduced her to my favorite movie of all time - The Sound of Music. And it was a hit! She kept referring to it as "the Maria movie." Sister Nugget had some definite rough patches, but being able to nurse her in the car helped. Did I ever tell you about that trick of mine? I can nurse babies in their carseats while both of us remain buckled in. It's kinda my superpower. It's also kinda uncomfortable.

I hope to share more about the funeral later this week, but it was really beautiful. Renee was so dear to the hearts of all those who knew her, and it is a consolation knowing that surely, if anyone has hope of heaven it is surely someone who suffered so much yet still loved so well and practiced her faith so beautifully. I feel so grateful to have had her as a part of my life!
