St. Michael’s Stomp

by | Sep 29, 2016 | All Hallows Eve, All Saints Day, Angels, Party Games, St. Michael | 5 comments

Last year, for our annual All Hallows’ Eve party, I asked each family to bring a game. My friend Aleesa brought along the supplies (the sign pictured above, balloons attached to rubber bands, and fun music) for a St. Michael Stomp!
All of the saints were broken into age groups for the game. When the music started playing the players goal was to stomp and pop the other balloons, staying within the set boundaries and without using their hands. Once their balloon had been popped they were out of the game. 
With today being the feast of Michaelmas, and All Hallows’ Eve coming up again next month, I thought it would be fun to share the pictures with you all! 

Mother Teresa held her own against all the other little saints… 

… and Blessed Pier Giorgio Frassati was disqualified for his steel-toe hiking boots! 

In the end it came down to, most appropriately, St. Michael himself who ended up being assisted by a piece of grass to defeat St. Louis IX, King of France. Everyone had a blast! 

You can scroll though our past All Hallows’ Eve partiescostumes, party printables, and find ideas for Michaelmas in the archives.

St. Michael the Archangel, pray for us!

    I required all the kids (and young adults!) to wear costumes last year, so my youngest brother (who was home from college) dug through our box and pulled out our oldest son's old St. Paul costume (as depicted in the picture book of saints):

    Thanks for sharing, Jessica. We used to play this as our last game years ago. I think that we might need to start doing so again. The children always enjoyed it. The sign is awesome! I might have to steel it. 🙂

    "Steal" not "steel" 😊

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.

A Little About Me

Hi! I'm Jessica, a Roman Catholic wife and home educating mother to our nine children. I was home educated myself, along with my eleven younger siblings. I have a special devotion to St. Therese, through whom I have been given much help and many blessings--the beautiful "Shower of Roses" that she has sent my way! Here I will record a few of the blessings I treasure. Please remember that what you see here is just a little glimpse at our lives, so please say a prayer for us, as we continue to strive for holiness.
