This year was our first All Saint's Day Celebration!
It was really fun to look thru all the saints and have the kids choose one.
It was pretty funny, too. William only wanted to dress up as a saint who donned a weapon.
He originally wanted to be the archangel Michael, but changed his mind at the last minute because he didn't want to wear wings.
So, we went with the ultra manly Saint George, the dragon slaying saint... with a homemade spear. The only thing we had to make for his costume, since this gladiator costume worked perfectly!
I hate to see that magic draining out of him... kids grow up so fast. :(
Ella poured thru tons of images of saints, having me name them all, look at the photos, researched what patron saint they were.... all to choose which one was wearing the prettiest outfit. All the while, I was desperately trying to talk her into being the newest Catholic saint, St. Kateri Tekakwitha. And I finally won out! woo hooo! She took so long choosing, that the day before the celebration, I finally said, "Ella you have to choose one" and she said, "okay, I'll just be the indian!". yay.
I love how her costume turned out. It was really fun to make!
