Lent traditions

Since what we're doing this year is basically that same as last year (I guess that's why they're called traditions...), most of this is from last year...

Our countdown calendar...


The Crown of Thorns...


How would you like one of these shoved into your head?!?



They are actually only toothpicks painted black and glued in place, but you get the point

(he he ~ no pun intended)

Our food for thought is now on the crown molding over our back room

And of course we have our Jesus tree too!

We completed the Lenten lapbook that I meant to do last year.  I'll post pictures soon.

We've decided to give up a few things for this Lent.  Crazy bread and sweets (except for Sundays, holidays and Feast Days).  The money that we save will go into our Rice Bowl for Catholic Relief Services.  We'll also be in front of the local abortion clinic each week (Tuesdays mostly, since it's a busy day) to support 40 Days for Life.  I'll also be adding some Lenten spiritual reading, and trying to restart our prayer times with Rosary, Chaplet of Divine Mercy and Liturgy of the Hours.  This rededication of time will have to come from somewhere else, so the looser will have to be the computer.  I won't disappear completely :), but will be pulling back a bit.  I have some posts to catch up on though.
