On this feast of the guardian angels, our plans naturally changed. We decided to stay another night with my parents so we did not make it home until later afternoon this afternoon. I still surprised the kids' with "tea with our angels" but instead of making angel kisses, we used white powdered donuts, calling them "angel cakes." Yesterday I set up our little kids' table with the tea set and decorations (minus the donuts) to have it all ready. It was the first thing they saw when we made it home - and were they excited!
Critter kicked off the "tea" (milk) with the Angel of God prayer that he loves so much now, and we dug in. They are in their shower/bath right now. After, we'll share some warm apple cider and cozy up on the couch to reading My Guardian Dear: A Story of the Angels (Mi Angel de la Guarda: Un Cuento Acerea de los Angeles) by Miriam Lademan and Susan Brindle. Happy feast day and Sunday to you and yours!
Angel of God,
my guardian dear,
to whom God's love commits me here,
ever this day,
be at my side
to light and guard,
to rule and guide.
