The Ascension and Our Lady of Fatima

Today is the feast of Our Lady of Fatima, you can read about it here.

One of the amazing things I learned once I got serious about my faith, (conversion I'd suppose) was all the miracles, all the Saints, all the treasures we have. I mean, Fatima, I'd never heard of until this time (mid 20's) and there were 70,000 witnesses of the miracle of the sun!! Why doesn't everyone know about this?

This is how we are celebrating tonight. I made these wonderful muffins from Barbara

Then added cool whip, yellow sprinkles and mandarin oranges to make a sun!

A little healthier than frosted cupcakes and man oh man, I can't open any chocolate chips for a face, I'll be eating chocolate chips after every meal for the next few days, until the bag is gone. Bag not open, bag not tempting.



The Ascension of Jesus is today, but celebrated Sunday. SO today for dessert we had pudding in a cloud. (Jesus ascending on a cloud) We used sugar free pudding so this is a low cal dessert.



Yummy!


Sunday we will have our famous "Ascension Pancakes"! The kids have been asking when we are going to have them, today or Sunday. Sounds like a good brunch meal!
