Last week didn’t go exactly as planned.    We had a last minute Baptism on the Feast of the Immaculate Conception, too!   It was a big day and I didn’t have to cook ;).   We are still downstate and will hopefully be able to see my cousins (who are my youngest daughter’s Godparents).   We overslept and never made it down, which was a good thing.  Hubby ended up sick all Saturday and laid pretty low on Sunday.

Our Lady of Guadalupe.

Our Lady of Guadalupe

This week is much more low key than last week, but we are also going add in the feast for Our Lady of Guadalupe on Wednesday (12/12).   We haven’t celebrated this one before, but I think I’d like to add it in.

I’ve searched all over and a tea for OLG seems to be the thing that everyone does.  I’m going to use the post from a Shower of Roses as my starting point, though I haven’t fully decided what our tea will actually look like.

We will color an image of Our Lady of Guadalupe and read about her in the St. Joseph book of Our Lady of Guadalupe (note — this link is for a pack of 10.  I bought several different titles in a 10-pk. and use them whenever I have a religious event to attend that might require a gift).    I’m also going to try having my daughter make a God’s Eye.  I think she is probably old enough to make a pretty good effort at it and she will LOVE adding it to our tree.  If we ever get ours :).

For dinner, we are just going to have a Mexican feast.   More than likely, I will make fancy enchiladas (i.e. – I make ALL the extras to go in them).   I use spanish rice, black beans, meat, and cheese and cover in LaPreferida Enchilada Sauce.  I don’t make them if I can’t find it.  That stuff ROCKS!

What are your Advent plans for this week?
