I have to add here that this 2008 All Saints’ Day party I threw was the birth of Catholic Icing. It was the first time I was like “Hey, why not celebrate something Catholic rather than throwing a Halloween party?” and when I went looking for All Saints’ day games online, the best idea I found was “Baptize Barbie,” and I didn’t even allow Barbies. Soooo… I started a website with Catholic ideas. Of course, the internet has come a loooong way since then, and there are now tons of great ideas available. 🙂

What I learned while going through All Saints’ Day pictures:

  • For some unknown reason, a lot of these pictures never made it onto Catholic Icing before… weird!
  • Julian really likes to wear costumes that involve armor
  • I really over-use white dresses for costumes (angel, angel, first communion girl, angel, St. Cecilia…)
  • I really re-use a lot of costume pieces again and again
  • It seems that whatever Saint I dress my kids up as for the first All Saints’ Day, that kid takes up a special devotion to that Saint. Interesting. We’ll see if Anabelle turns out to love St. Therese…
  • When you dress up a kid as an angel for All Saints’ day, you should probably pick a specific one (Such as St. Gabriel, St. Raphael, etc.)

Prizes

So the 3 photos that get the most votes will each receive this pack of Saint books for kids. Also, let’s have the voting go through Wednesday, shall we?

  1. Adorable!
    And Totally OT:
    When did you have seven kids?! The last count I had was four (? I think…) I’m assuming you didn’t borrow someone else’s children? 😉

  2. What precious little peaches! Thank you so much for sharing.

  3. Thanks for this fun post, I loved seeing all the pictures of your sweet kids over the years, and thank you for Catholic Icing. It is a great site and I use it alot in my role as a children’s catechist. Have a great day.

  4. Spiderman?! Here is a story that elevated the spider by associating it with a saint!
