All Saints Party

We were very excited to attend the All Saints Party at Tim and Wanda's farm again this year.  There was an amazing turnout with over 90 kids dressed as Saints.  David was St. George and the Dragon again this year.  He picked out some fancy armor this year to upgrade his costume but I think he soon tired of carrying around so much bulk.  The helmet, chest plate and shield were ditched pretty quickly.  Emily, not to be outdone by her brother, selected a female warrior so that she could carry around fancy armor as well.  Can you guess who she is?  St. Joan of Arc, of course.

Lia chose to be an angel again this year but this time she was more specific.  If anyone asked, she would say, "My name is Lia.  I am 3 years old and I am dressed as St. Raphael."  (The Arch Angel, of course)

As you can imagine, the tire swing was very popular!  Emily headed straight for it when we arrived.  Can you tell it was a beautiful afternoon?

We brought a picture of Nonna holding David as a baby for the All Souls chapel.  Kneelers were provided to the children so they could say a prayer for all those who have died.

Here is Lia and her friend Cecelia.  They are showing me their St. Patrick shamrocks painted on their hands.  Each family is asked to sponsor a game or activity honoring the Saints.  The children have a great time going from game to game and trying to complete them all.

And Lia in St. Peter's Boat.  It looked like such a good photo opportunity.  I couldn't resist.
