Our Lady of the Rosary

In honor of the Feast of Our Lady of the Rosary, which we celebrate today, the kids and I prayed our rosary a little differently than usual. I put together a candy rosary. (After a great deal of searching, I even managed to find candy marked with an "M" just for Mary... ok, maybe it was an easy find.) Each of the kids lead one decade and collected an m&m for each "Hail Mary" in their decade. I collected the m&ms for the beginning prayers and for each "Our Father."
I don't remeber the last time the kids were so excited to pray a rosary. I may have to do this more often.

I was thinking of doing an M&M rosary yesterday, but after seeing Jamie's marshmallow rosary I decided to do that one. Maybe next time. Thanks for sharing.
