Happy Birthday!! Holy Father!!

I honor of Pope Benedict XVI's birthday today, we had a delicious meal of pork and sauerkraut. We learned alot about some of the Pope's favorite things on this very informative poster that I have printed out.

We also learned that one of the Pope's favorite things is chocolate. Because of this, we made a chocolate cake for dessert. On it I put candles to form the number 16.(I didn't have 81 candles.
We have been having a wonderful time watching the coverage of the Pope's visit on EWTN.
The kids were especially excited to see the Pope-mobile on tv today.
We are also very lucky to have 5 family members getting ready to see the Holy Father in person. Amy and Matt are going to Dunwoodie on Friday and Saturday for a retreat and a prayer service with the Pope on Saturday. Pat Sr., Becky and Danny are boarding a bus early Sunday morning to go to the Papal mass at Yankee stadium on Sunday afternoon.
These are wonderful days of prayer for our whole country!
