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
