Today is Christ the King Sunday!
Interesting factoid: In the Evangelical-Lutheran Church of Sweden, this day is referred to as "The Sunday of Doom". Wikipedia wasn't explicit as to how it came to have such a hilarious nickname, so I will make cookies for whoever can tell me the story behind that.
If I'm doing my math right, today marks eighteen years since I entered the Catholic church. I was raised in a dual-faith household--dad is Catholic and mom was Lutheran.
I was baptized in a Lutheran church and me and my siblings typically attended services with my mom while my dad went to Mass all by his lonesome. However, I was drawn to the Catholic Church from an early age. I blame Sister Mary Benedict.
Anyway, I started attending Mass with my dad every week in addition to the Lutheran services with my mom.
When I was eleven years old I was ready to take the plunge, and I took my first communion and had my confirmation on the same day, Christ the King Sunday!
Today being my Catholicaversary and all, I had hoped for a positive Mass experience. Both CJ and Noni are going through an "only mommy" phase. At least, I hope it's a phase. Someone please tell me it's just a phase! They both insist on being held, which is fine--except Noni loves to push CJ's buttons and he is only too happy to scream bloody murder when she does. Plus it looks silly for me to stand in Mass holding sixty pounds of babies while Nemo holds the hymnal. People might get the wrong idea.
Anyway, our Mass experience devolved into one broken necklace, two facial injuries, innumerable shoving matches, zero comprehension of the liturgy, and tears from three-quarters of the Humblebee family.
But the good news is we still got to be in the presence of Christ the King.
Necklace: Acquired yesterday from a vintage jewelry dealer at a craft show. Too bad Noni broke it during it's maiden voyage. Nemo MacGyvered it back together for the picture:)
Belt: Kohl's, I think. I belt everything I can so I give the illusion of having a waist!
Random white thread on the leg of my tights: my sewing room. I got half way through editing it out of the picture and then I was like, you know what? That thread happened. Gotta keep it real.
