My birthday lands on Fat Tuesday this year! Woot! Woot!
All the more reason to feast, right? (*wink*)
Actually, I told David and the kids today that I would like a King Cake for my birthday. I've never had a "professionally baked" one and this VooDoo one sounds decedent!
Talking about Fat Tuesday reminded me our Lenten bin is up on the closet shelf, and I that needed to go through it.
The Story of the Cross: The Stations of the Cross for Children can be found here. (I bought mine at a MUCH cheaper price last year!)
Children's Stations of the Cross can be found here. Stations of the Cross coloring book can be found here.
The Way of the Cross for Children can be found here. The Way of the Cross for Children DVD can be found here. The Sorrowful Mysteries CD can be found here.

Literature on the sacrament of Reconciliation and on Adoration as well as faith based material...
The Most Beautiful Thing in the World can be found here. It is a beautiful story about he sacrament of reconciliation. The Little Caterpillar That Finds Jesus can be found here. It is about time spent with Jesus in Adoration. My Path to Heaven: A Young Person's Guide to the Faith can be found here. My Catholic Lent and Easter Activity Book can be found here. Celebrating Lent can be found here.
Do we go through ALL THAT MATERIAL? No way, Jose. I just put the bin out and let them use what they need. We do, however, always meditate on the Stations of the Cross and will use our candles we made last year.
There's also some adult reading for myself and David ...
Ash Wednesday is on March 5 this year. Rather late, but that means Easter Sunday should be warm and sunny for us in Texas.
(I think little girls in sleeveless Easter dresses are so cute!)
Have a great weekend and a blessed Sunday!
