On the 12th Day of Christmas...

... we celebrated the feast of the Epiphany!

Hot Cocoa topped with Whip Cream
and Star Shaped Marshmallows

Smiling Faces
(Notice Twinkle Toes Toothless smile!)

Star Shaped Pancakes

My little Catholic Cuisine Chefs,
all ready to bake a Crown Cake for Epiphany!

We kept it simple by just adding THREE Spices (Cinnamon, Allspice and Cloves) to a Yellow Cake mix, representing the THREE KINGS who came from the East...

... and then baking it in a Crown Shaped Pan!

We read a few favorite books and gave three gifts to our children!

"From the east came the Magi to Bethlehem to adore the Lord; and opening their treasures they offered precious gifts: gold for the great King, incense for the true God, and myrrh in symbol of His burial."

~ From the Blessing of the Home on the Feast of the Epiphany

  4. I love it when they lose those two top teeth. :) It never seems to last very long either,,,those big teeth come down so fast.

  5. Lovely ideas for Epiphany, especially the books!
    One of my kids saw the hot cocoa with whipped cream and exclaimed we needed to do that too!
