I mentioned the other day that I did have another new book to surprise the kids with this Advent. I actually pre-ordered this book last year, but it ended up not arriving in time for the feast of Our Lady of Guadalupe, so I saved it for this year. All year I’ve been dying to take it out of my closet to share with the kids. They are going to love it!
This book has twelve pages, which create six beautiful double page pop-ups, telling the story of Our Lady of Guadalupe. Here are a few examples:
The feast of Our Lady of Guadalupe is coming up on December 12th, preceded by the feast of St. Juan Diego on December 9th. I’m not making any definite plans for a Mexican Fiesta or another Our Lady of Guadalupe Tea this year, since I will be “full term” by then, but at the very least we will be reading this book, beginning our Christmas Rose Novena, and enjoying some sort of Catholic Cuisine!
P.S. Could you please say an extra prayer for us, as we all try and get over coughs, colds, sore throats, and earaches? Nothing like getting sick to force me to try and rest and to cancel/reschedule the rest of our plans for the week… Thank you!
