    Camp Franciscan reunion tonight at my house! Beth, Julie, and I will be watching 3, maybe 4 movies and making jean bags. The movies include Sister Act, Sister Act 2, Trouble with the Angels, and maybe Sound of Music. Can't wait!

  3. Sounds like fun Maggie!!!! I think my favorite is the Sound of Music, however Trouble with Angels is also fun as well as Sister Act ….do enjoy!

  4. Some of us saw Megan from Manitowoc the other day. So glad that you are keeping the jean bag trend going! Sister Mary Ann and I are starting to gather ideas for C.F. 2011.
