Happy Birthday, Mary!

Today we celebrate the birthday of Mary, Mother of Jesus!  I made a cake to celebrate... this is a chocolate peanut butter "ice cream" cake.  I have tasted it and am about to go get myself a nice-sized slice!!

We have done this for several years now... bake a birthday cake, put ten blue candles in it, light each one as we say a Hail Mary, and then after completing a decade of the rosary, sing Happy Birthday to Mary and blow out the candles!

Our Mary statues were still out on the nearby speaker, so we moved them back to the table, along with a few Mary holy cards.

Cecilia made one of the Mary statues help to blow out the candles... it was her cake, after all.
