Celebrate Mary’s Birthday with Doughnuts, Cake, and Candles! (My Post at Peanut Butter & Grace)

The day before my parents' big 50th wedding anniversary party on September 9, 2017, (blog post on the big celebration coming soon!)  we had a small celebration with our family and my sister and her family for our Blessed Mother's birthday on the morning of September 8th.

In year's past we have celebrated this special day with other families in our homeschool group, but this year with so much going on with my family's festivities, we decided to celebrate with just our family.

In the morning, I laid out our traditional doughnut rosary (that we have done for several years now) with a vase of roses and our Marian statue holding a rosary.  We prayed a decade of the rosary and then everyone had doughnuts for breakfast.  I bought 60 munchkins and a dozen doughnuts to make the rosary. (actually we used 53 munchkins and 6 glazed doughnuts total for the rosary)

Here is what our rosary looked like this year:

I wrote a post at Peanut Butter & Grace titled Celebrate Mary's Birthday with Doughnuts, Cake, and Candles!

In the post, I include photos of all the yummy, edible rosaries we have made in the past with our homeschool group for our Blessed Mother's birthday.

Did you celebrate Mary's birthday this year?  If so, how did you celebrate? With doughnuts, cake and candles? Or maybe you had cupcakes?

Happy Birthday Mother Mary!
