Feast of St. George

Last year, one of my New Year's resolutions was to bring the liturgical year alive in our home. As sometimes happens, I really didn't follow through consistently in this goal. Thanks to a new blog, Catholic Cuisine, I can now be reminded inspired to celebrate the different feast days.

And what a great way to start here in my house full of testosterone. St. George was definitely a boy's saint. My boys were already familiar with St. George from reading our Alphabet of Catholic Saints, where he is the featured saint for the letter "G". Today we talked a little bit more about who St. George was, and what he represents. We also made St. George Cupcakes in his honor. We had a lot of fun making (and especially eating!) our cupcakes today.

Bate, bate, mix, mix, mix!

"Carefully" filling the cupcakes

Spreading the icing

Say, "St. George!"

The finished product.

I just love eating the "fruits" of my big brothers' work!

OK, I'll be adding "Catholic Cuisine" to my list of blogs! Thanks for the link, that just what I need.

BTW, everytime I try to send you an email from your comment it comes back as undeliverable, so I think you email address might be entered in wrong when you leave me a comment.

I'm off to catch up on the rest of your blog, I am WAY behind!
