Yesterday was Ash Wednesday, the beginning of Lent. Last year Eliza didn't even notice when the priest placed the ash cross on her forehead, but this year was a different story! When we got up to the priest for ashes, he tried to place them on Eliza, but she swatted his hand away. (Congregation began to chuckle.) Then he put them on me and made a quick dot on Eliza's forehead. As soon as she saw my ashes she started saying "Uh oh, Mama!" (loudly) over and over and over again, trying to rub the ashes off of my forehead. The congregation was laughing loudly at this point and Eliza and I took a trip to the hallway.
Oh those babies!
