Our Litany

St Joseph's Home Educators' All Saints' Day Party...


Jacob as "St. George the Dragon Slayer." Alex as "St. Dominic Savio, Patron Saint of boys." Simeon as "St. Francis of Assisi," surrounded by the animals he loves. Zachary is his toucan and Nicholas his turtle.



You need to see that toucan from the side and that turtle from the back to get the full effect.

What a great word to describe them, cheryl, I will remember that.

erin, erin, erin, so nice to hear from you! Yes, our baby Simeon has grown up. I can't believe it myself.

Thank you rebecca, alice and jen. The St Francis costume is homemade, but not by me.

Thanks, jamie. Our gatherings are on the first Friday of each month, so that's why the party was yesterday.

What a great idea for St. Dominic Savio! I might have to mention that to one of my boys for next year. This year we had a St. Longinus (that one was a challenge) and a St. Francis before he took the habit (in other words a two year old who refused to dress up because, well, he's two). My daughters were Blessed Imelda and St. Mary Magdalene. It is nice to be able to show them pictures of other kids who dress up as saints like they do.

So creative! And your little men are so handsome.

Suzanne Temple said...

c.m.w, It sounds like you had some pretty good ideas, yourself. St. Longinus? Wow!

Thank you, jenngm.
