And then we'll feast, feast, feast, feast....

I don't know if I can keep up with all the feasting around here! If you want to try, go visit A Shower of Roses because she's good. No, not me! Lol! Jessica! I really don't know how she does it, especially with those 5 beautiful children. Young children. I could never have done what she does at her age. Maybe it's because she was homeschooled. So maybe there is hope for my children, at least.

We did celebrate the Feast of the Archangels yesterday with devil's food cupcakes, coloring pages, and an Archangel quiz game. Those all came from A Year with God. We ended dinner with a rousing, spontaneous game of Catholic Jeopardy from the same book. It was a lot of fun.

Tonight we'll take a breather. Sorry, St. Jerome.

Wednesday is the Feast of St. Therese, my patroness. I don't know how much feasting we'll be doing since the family won't be together in the evening. I'll be at choir rehearsal and MoW, Hitch, and Madden will be at The School for an awards ceremony. If I'm up for it, literally, at 6 a.m., I'll make French Toast in her honor, and we'll have a pink beverage in the afternoon while we make paper roses. If we are anywhere near a Catholic store, I'll pick up a copy of one of the Therese movies to watch while we make flowers. Since it's on October 1, the Month of Nothing will be over!

Thursday is the Feast of the Guardian Angels and we'll be having angel food cake in their honor. They definitely deserve a party since I depend on the guardian angels in this family and they always come through for me! I might decorate it with roses, for Therese, but I don't think they'll mind. I'm sure they love her too.

Saturday, the 4th, brings us to St. Francis of Assisi---another of our family patrons. I'm not sure how we'll mark the day as Madden will be busy with football and the homecoming dance that night. Maybe it will be brunch---because I doubt he will be up for breakfast!

Then we have a little break from family feasts until the 16th when we celebrate the feast of St. Margaret Mary Alacoque. Plans for that one need to be researched! Perhaps a heart-shaped cake for the Sacred Heart?

Question for my readers----how do you keep up with feasts at your house? What do you do to celebrate?


  1. Shoot, as I said in my 100 things,I am birthday challenged. If it weren't for kids tunnel vision I would forget their birthday's!! Saints' Days?? Probably never happen. But you have always had a devotion to the saints. That is one of my first memories of you, quietly reading the kids saint questions from Catholic Digest waiting for choir to get out. Always my role model!

  2. Happy Feast of St. Therese!

    You are so sweet! There is plenty that I don't do. I just *love* celebrating the Saints. Plus, I am not pregnant right now. (At least I don't think so...) Once I am pregnant, I will have a very hard time doing anything. I think when I am not, I try to make up for lost time! :)

    I hope your day was great!


Thanks for dropping by! I would love to hear from you. Have a beautiful day! :-)
