This is a re-post from our celebration in 2008. I have dropped the ball on these types of celebrations this year. It's been hard to feel like doing it for a lot of reasons.
Still it's nice to look back and remember……..
Today we read "A Gift of Gracias" and used Fenestrae Fidei: A Coloring Companion to Catholic Mosaic to accompany the story.
Here's how it looked.
When I walked into the grocer store these orange tulips were the first thing I saw. I thought they would make a pretty and festive addition to tea time. The cupcakes are just plain white, the only kind Ryan will eat, with buttercream frosting tinted orange and flavored with a bit of orange juice.
After listening nicely everyone dove into the coloring pages while we discussed gratitude and Marian apparitions.
Sean is a HUGE fan of cupcakes!
Bridgie loves them too but she was anxious to join the fun.
In the blink of an eye, she was in the middle of it all.
A nice addition to our liturgical notebooks.
Our Lady of Altagracia, Pray for us!
Sweet dreams everyone!
