Trahaearn weighed and our simple meal organised and the children dressed up in their costumes that we did not play any of the games we had planned for this day.
Our younger children were a little disappointed with this as they had anticipated this for a 'whole day' after the Halloween Celebration and my idea of sharing what we do on this day is once again not quite up to scratch.
Therefore Blessed Jacinta (above) is dressed in a peasant shepherd girl looking clothes and a couple of toy lambs and headscarf.
Funnily enough Arwen thought we were going to Mass because she was getting dressed up and and wearing a headscarf. Then she was quite put out to discover that we were not going then and insisted we go right there and then!
St Dymphna also had a fairly simple outfit. Skirt with a blouse and headscarf with a bible/prayerbook.
St Joseph was a simple one with a shirt underneath some play cloths wrapped around the body and a cloth on his head held on with some wool
St. Maria Goretti was another peasant style saint and easy to dress for. Myffwyn was a little tragic through out the afternoon filling her role perfectly
Baby Moses just too cute what else can I say!!!!
St Joseph Yuen was Rogan's choice and we were not surprised as he seems to have quite a devotion to China in his saints.
We actually took two cloths and hand sewed them together at the shoulder, so they could be taken apart again. He used an old pair of black tights for his braid and beard and then sewed up an old table cloth to go underneath the red over robe
St Cecilia was who Vellvin decided to be. A reasonably easy costume to ensemble.
St. Maximilian Kolbe was who Saxon decided to come as. Super easy!
Bring on the Pajama party!
Judith from Old Testament was Eden's choice. Her costume was a little more time consuming then most of the others but, was very lovely when completed.
Autumn's Deb. Ball. Eden was then very creative with two pretty shawls. Using one as a shawl of sorts and the other as a head covering. At the back of her hair she plaited in two ribbons as well adding to the eastern looking costume. For the head of the king that Judith cut off, she used an orange from Halloween and pinned on yarn hair and a little paper crown. A very successful and pretty costume.
