Communion, Sickness, and Movie Night

I've been trying to post something all week, but it just wasn't in the cards.  So, here's a recap of what's been happening with the Kraft clan.

Last Sunday, Joseph celebrated his First Holy Communion.  He is my third child to come to the Lord's table with us!  My friend loaned us a black suit complete with a white tie...snazzy!  Both sets of grandparents traveled the 500 miles from North Dakota to be here for Joseph and spend the weekend with us.  It was a very special day to say the least!

He looks so grown-up!

Here we are...tough to get a good shot of everyone at the same time!

Thanks for celebrating with us grandparents!

His inventive big sisters even made him a cross shaped pinata to commemorate the day!
Haley hasn't been hearing well and I was wondering if it was pre-teen selective hearing syndrome (I just made that up, but I think it may be in the medical journals somewhere!) or if she was having troubles with her ears.  We went in and the doctor said that she had swimmers ear in one ear and the other looked fine.  One week later, she was up all night with pain in the other ear.  So we went in again and this time that ear was full of puss and yuck...time for antibiotics.

Lillian, who has a history of wheezing/breathing difficulties, came down with a cold.  She checked out okay on Wednesday with orders to do nebulizer treatments twice a day.  Friday night she was up all night with body aches and 102 temperature.  Back to the doctor to get an antibiotic for walking pneumonia.  As long as the Tylenol is in her system, she feels okay, but as soon as it wears off she is miserable again.  I'm hoping for the antibiotic to kick in soon so that she can start feeling well again soon.

Saturday night had movie night written all over it.  I was tuckered out and didn't feel like putting any energy into anything else.  We borrowed a copy of the Mighty Macs from some friends and settled in for the show.  We had to stop the movie a few times for discussions about the culture of the 1970's (women's liberation movement) and to correct incorrect depictions of religious life (removal of habit to enjoy a beer in a bar), but overall enjoyed the movie.

Peter is captivated by the movie!
Can you tell that the Tylenol is fresh in her system?!
So today we rest and pray that this sickness misses Peter.  The weather we're having here in Minnesota is so weird.  One day it is balmy and the next you need a winter coat.  I don't have any scientific data to back this up, but my mom-instincts tell me that this type of weather promotes sickness of all types. It also makes it tough to get a good sleep to overcome and illness when there are massive thunderstorms rolling through most of the night. 

I hope that you are all healthy and enjoying the Easter season.

God Bless!
