Since reading a beautiful post with a peaceful description of a morning begun...
Crafts & Activities "Have a priest enroll you in the Scapular of Our Lady of Mount Carmel, or popularly known as the "Brown Scapular" and begin wearing it as a sign of your love for Our Lady. A priest enrolls people in the Brown Scapular only once. The Scapular can then be replaced afterwards by other scapulars or the scapular medal, which has on one side the image of the Sacred Heart of Jesus and on the other, the image of Mary. The medal needs to be blessed by a priest, but the cloth scapulars do not require a blessing (separate from enrollment)." (from catholicculture.org) Catholic Company has brown scapulars here and scapular medals here.

For the children, make Carmel Ice milks by blending milk, carmel sauce and ice in a blender. Top with whipped cream and carmel sauce. For a refreshing start to your morning make a Carmel Iced Coffee by blending chilled strong coffee (4 times stronger is what I like), milk, carmel sauce, milk and ice. Pour into a glass and for a sweet addition top with whipped cream and carmel sauce. Or make it a Carmel Coffee piping hot with carmel melted in it.
Add a shot of coffee liquor and serve it in a wine glass for an after dinner treat. Our Lady of Mount Carmel, pray for us!

Before we left we made these easy and adorable pipe cleaner sparklers Friday morning. The kids held them during the parade, so cute.
