Our All Saints Party was quite a success once again! It just gets better each year! The kids all had such a wonderful time dressing up, carving pumpkins, playing games, and just having lots of fun and lots of sugar!
This is one of Rascals favorite saints. We also learned of this saint from a CD story “My Battle Name is Jose Luis” by Glory Stories. Blessed Jose Luis was a Christero and was sentenced to death by his godfather at the young age of 14. I had been a little stressed about putting this costume together (I can’t sew and costumes have NEVER been my forte). I went to Walmart to try and find a Mexican flag. I asked the woman… and she looked at me funny and said, “Um… NO.” So I came home and saw my felt box. I started to sew, and finished by hot gluing 3 pieces of felt together and adding a picture of Our Lady of Guadalupe from one of hubby’s old t-shirts. It worked perfectly, and Rascal was THRILLED!
Twinkle Toes wanted to be St Cecilia. She loves pink, and St. Cecilia is depicted wearing pink in our Picture Book of Saints. I was trying to figure out how to come up with a miniature harp, but I was able to make one at the last minute. Doesn’t she look darling?
Peanut didn’t dress up… It was all I could do to get the other kids costumes together… But I couldn’t leave him out of the line up… This is a picture of him with his Great Auntie. She stopped by to see the kids! I love this picture!
