This past Saturday Rascal’s godparents, who just came back from a trip to Germany, decided to host an Oktoberfest/Costume Party. They served German wursts, German potato salad and sauerkraut. Everyone was asked to bring a German food or dessert to share, and dress in fun, modest and not scary costumes! After our crazy couple days, I had to keep it simple and just picked up Pretzel Slider Rolls and Apple Strudel from Costco, but it was so nice to get out and visit with friends!
I tried my best to convince the kids dress up as the 7 dwarves, and I could go as a (non-Disney) version of Snow White, with Hubby dressing as
Prince Charming The Huntsman. But they wouldn’t go for it! 😉 I had a couple girls, one in particular, that just didn’t like the idea of dressing as a boy dwarf! In the end, I liked their idea better, anyways.
The four oldest decided to dress as Peter, Susan, Edmund and Lucy from The Chronicles of Narnia. Edmund even had an injured lip from being hit by the White Witch! They even decided to dress Bud up as a lion to represent Aslan.
Isn’t he just the cutest little lion ever?
As I mentioned in my Daybook
, Snuggles insisted on dressing as Peter Pan and came up with most of his costume on his own! Our little Pixie (as we affectionately call this petite youngest daughter of ours) dressed up as (a modestly dressed) Tinkerbell.
Now to finish preparing the Saint Costumes for this week’s Costume Party at our Parish, and our upcoming All Hallows’ Eve Party
on the 31st here at our home!
Prayer of Mothers
Father in heaven, grant me the grace to appreciate the dignity which you have conferred on me. Let me realize that not even the Angels have been blessed with such a privilege—to share in your creative miracle and bring new Saints to heaven. Make me a good mother to all my children after the example of Mary, the Mother of your Son. Through the intercession of Jesus and Mary I ask your continued blessings on my family. Let us all be dedicated to your service on earth and attain the eternal happiness of your kingdom in heaven. Amen.
