Feast of Pentecost 2010

We now have a tradition...

Pentecost Cake!

It didn't come out quite as nice as last year's cake, but it's still delicious :)

1 large Christ candle
12 birthday candles for the 12 apostles
7 hearts for the 7 gifts of the Holy Spirit
12 strawberries for the 12 fruits of the Holy Spirit

Note to self: Put the strawberries on top and the hearts around the outside.  Strawberries "leak".  Get a new candle and push it IN (it leaned on the way to the table - it's leaning here too).

Last year I had The Professor cut out tongues of flames and write the gifts of the Spirit on them.  This year the wonderful Jessica made my job easier :)  She made the flames for us, so all I had to do was click and print.  The Professor did the rest :)  Jessica made a windsock, bet I took the short way out...

Hard to see, but the gifts of the Spirit are printed on the flames.

We also had a coloring page and a crossword puzzle.

We went with a red theme for lunch ~ Red (ish) hot dogs, red ketchup, red-orange macaroni and cheese.

For supper we went red and white.  We had London Broil Chicken (which comes out nearly white for some reason), bread and strawberries
