Even though it ended up being a two day project (we started the cookies yesterday, before I left for a night-out with friends, and finished decorating them today after our new math tutor left)

in honor of the feast of St. George!
They went with pretty much the same design as last year, with a few changes. Mainly they just wanted to make this year’s cookie quilt 3-D by standing up the Castle
, and adding St. George

“glued” on with melted candy completed the “huge flames that covered all the heavens with smoke and brimstone so that the knight was forced to retreat to save his body from the scorching fire.”
And I loved how “St. George” really made sure that fire-breathing dragon “would stir no more…”
Fairy tales are more than true; not because they tell us that dragons exist, but because they tell us that dragons can be beaten. ~G. K. Chesterton
Happy (belated) Feast of St. George!
Prayer of Mothers
Father in heaven, grant me the grace to appreciate the dignity which you have conferred on me. Let me realize that not even the Angels have been blessed with such a privilege—to share in your creative miracle and bring new Saints to heaven. Make me a good mother to all my children after the example of Mary, the Mother of your Son. Through the intercession of Jesus and Mary I ask your continued blessings on my family. Let us all be dedicated to your service on earth and attain the eternal happiness of your kingdom in heaven. Amen.
