Spiced Mexicocoa, Cookies, and a Movie

December 9 is the feast of St. Juan Diego, and we celebrated it this year with some Holiday Spiced Mexicocoa ::


as well as making those adorable, sombrero cookies again ::




while playing with peg dolls ::


as well as watching another saintly DVD ::


It was a fun feast day to celebrate, especially with a certain 5 year old in the house. :)

St. Juan Diego, pray for us!

#Truth.  The older I get, the less I like crowded malls.  Yesterday was for the kids who experienced skating at the Dallas Galleria at Christmas time. :)

PS - The people watching was FANTASTIC though!

Feast of the Immaculate Conception

Blue frosted cupcakes with gold sprinkles on top to celebrate the Feast of the Immaculate Conception, Dec. 8.



You can look Here for a brief explanation on the Immaculate Conception if you want :)

O God,  who by the Immaculate Conception
of the Blessed Virgin Mary,
did prepare a worthy dwelling place for Your Son,
we beseech You that, as by the foreseen death of this, Your Son, You did preserve Her from all stain,
so too You would permit us, purified through Her intercession,  to come unto You.
Through the same Lord Jesus Christ,  Your Son, who lives and reigns with You in the unity of the Holy Spirit,
God, world without end. 

Amen.

*St. Anne and Mary as an infant* Today is the holy day of the Immaculate Conception; Mary conceived without sin. How can this be if Jesus saved all from sin? Jesus is God's son, the second person of the Blessed Trinity. He took his human flesh from Mary. Jesus was not a kind of squeaky clean super man who sort of slid through Mary's body as if it were a conduit into this world. Jesus took his flesh from his mother. If he took her human flesh it had to be free from any taint of original sin otherwise he would also share in that sin and would not be the perfect son of God. Therefore we believe that God preserved Mary from any taint of original sin. God saved Mary at the beginning of her life and if life begins at conception, then it began when she was conceived (by natural processes between her mother and father)." ~Fr. Dwight Longenecker.

Miss 4 lbs of cuteness gave me a whopping 30 seconds of #peace and quiet this morning before she was up ready to play for the day.  I really cherish the quiet time in the morning when everyone else is still snug in their beds.  If Belle wasn't so cute...
