I’ve been meaning to share these pictures from All Hallows’ Eve here on the blog and finally had a few moments to finish up the post. I took them just before our guests arrived for our All Hallows’ Eve/All Saints Party. It was such a fun evening and thankfully the weather (mostly) cooperated!
.: Our Lady of Knock :.
In Ireland Our Lady dressed
in shades of white and green,
to show that she would always be
the Emerald Isle’s Queen…
.: Our Lady of Fatima :.
In Fatima Our Lady stood
upon a holly tree.
She dressed in white
like crystal light
and held a rosary…
“The Lady was holding rosary beads, which were as brilliant as stars—the crucifix seeming to give off the most radiant light of all.”
“A cord with a little ball of light hung from her neck and towards the bottom of her tunic was a star.”
Our Lady of Fatima with Sister Lucia and Saints Jacinta & Francisco
.: St. Francisco Marto :.
He originally had a different saint in mind, but was talked into St. Francisco Martin by his sister and two of their friends! He carved a sheep this year to go along with his simple costume and went down to the river to find a stick/shepherd staff.
.: Our Lady Queen of the Angels :.
She stands there shining like the sun,
in robes of blue and red;
a crown of twelve bright sparkling stars
she wears upon her head…
Her sweet friend dressed as a beautiful angel for our party! ♥
.: St. Augustine :.
The rest he rounded up from the costume bins.
.: St. Thérèse of Lisieux :.
“You cannot be half a saint; you must be a whole saint or no saint at all.”
– St. Thérèse of Lisieux
.: St. Elizabeth Ann Seton :.
This St. Elizabeth Ann Seton costume was actually made by my mother-in-law back in 2006
for our oldest daughter when she was 3 years old. She made them all their costumes that year!!
My mother-in-law passed away two weeks after our youngest was born in 2019…
It was so special to see her wearing that sweet hand-me-down costume this year! ♥
A couple more group photos… I had a hard time picking a favorite of everyone!
All Saints in Heaven, pray for us!
