Happy Epiphany! Finally, it's the twelfth day of Christmas. The day when the Wise Men found Jesus in the manger. The day when Christ manifested Himself to the world. The day when we can finally take down our Christmas tree!
We celebrated the Feast of the Epiphany this past Sunday with a King's Cake. My youngest son--my sous chef--mixed food coloring with a basic vanilla cake batter to make the different colors of the cake; purple for justice, green for faith and gold for power. And in leiu of a plastic baby Jesus we settled on a plastic dinosaur to hide in the cake.
And all of his hard work paid off--his slice of cake had the baby Jesus/dinosaur in it and he was crowned King of the Day! He decided to declare an end to early bedtimes but it was overruled by the Queen--me:)
