Queenship Crown Cookies for Our Lady
At our house we have learned to celebrate special feasts (and many other things) around a Firefighter schedule!
We don't have much of a choice if we want to do certain things all together as a family.
Since Hubby is on duty all weekend, he will miss Sunday's Mass and Queenship.
To include him, we celebrated the Queen of Heaven last night!
We were all pooped after a busy 1st week of school so I was looking for something easy.
I bought these large cookies and used a cookie cutter as a guide for the crown decor... You could probably do the same thing without the cookie cutter! I just used frosting and sprinkles that I had in the pantry from our May Crowning celebration.
These were perfect visual treats (especially for our little ones), following the Glorious Mysteries, specifically the last two!
So we began AND ended our week with soul food:
Most importantly~The Eucharist!
.....Followed by Chocolate Chip Cookies, an earthly delight.
It was nice to come together in prayer as a family, all 7 of us (since hubby is not with us on a daily basis), reflecting upon the things we are thankful for... Especially this feast of Our Lady's Queenship and our goal of heaven.
I think it will be a new tradition to begin our school year at the Assumption, followed a week later by the Queenship. It is a good reminder that Our Lady walks with us and reminds us of our goal as she is the Queen of this hopeful destination.
