Celebrating the Assumption

Rosary Album: A Visual and Scriptural Meditation of the Rosary, an Easy and Devout Method of Reciting the Rosary is pictured on the left and a page from The Life of Mary for Children is on the right. 

Who is she ascends so high,
Next the heavenly King,
Round about whom angels fly
And her praises sing?

All ready for Mass with one of her favorite bags... (Thank you Miss JenniferAnne!!!)
... wearing her pink veil, and making sure to tuck her "My Little Prayer Book" inside.

Who is she adorned with light,
Makes the sun her robe, 
At whose feet the queen of night
Lays her changing globe?

Mary by Demi, Rosary Album and The Life of Mary for Children

This is she in whose pure womb
Heaven's Prince remained;
Therefore in no earthly tomb
Can she be contained.

Heaven she was, which held that fire,
Whence the world took light,
And to heaven doth now aspire
Flames with flames t'unite.

Heavenly Assumption Parfaits... 
... you can find the recipe at Catholic Cuisine

She that did so clearly shine
When our day begun, 
See how bright her beams decline:
Now she sits with the Sun.

Snuggles definitely takes after my Dad... (Yes, that is my Dad's trademark silly face!) There's a real smile! Silly boy. 

Sir John Beaumont (1583-1627)  

Update:  I just found additional copies of the Rosary Album Booklet available at the National Shine for a much better price.  We were given two copies, one for the boys and one for the girls, from Sean's youngest brother. 
It is a beautiful book!
