Happy Assumption Day!

Do you sometimes get confused between Ascension and Assumption or have no idea what I am talking about in the first place?  Remember, Jesus ascended to Heaven under His own power and authority.  Mary was assumed into Heaven...also by His power and authority.  No matter how cool we Catholics think Mary is, she is still a vessel that points us straight to Jesus!

Albeit a very cool vessel.

If you are looking for something special to do today, Martine at Training Happy Hearts has a great round up post of Assumption playdate ideas for you.

You can read my special connection to this day, inspiring us to rename Lucie as Lucia Marie (before she was born in case you are confused), here.

We are heading to surprise my grandpa with a picnic in the park and bring some craft activities to the residents at the nursing home he lives in.

Have a great day!

P.S.  Seeing as we are traveling today, I cheated.  This post photo is actually our Immaculate Conception table setting from...oh... 2011?  Good thing Mary is so cool across time and through the year!
