Pumpkin Patch & Halloween

Mid-October we took a day trip to Vala's Pumpkin Patch. This is the first year we took the hayrack ride to go pick out pumpkins in their patch. There is so much to do there that we never get to it. It was a good time to give Mena a nap and sit and enjoy the ride. Thank you to UP for treating us again this year. Vala's is great!

The Saturday before Halloween we went to the CHAO (Catholic Homeschoolers Association of Omaha) All Saint's Party. What fun seeing friends and playing all the games.

Xavier was St. Peter. See the keys to the Kingdom of Heaven?

Zachary went as a knight: St George to be exact.

Halloween night we went to ICC's All Saint's Party. Potluck, parade of Saints and party with games and prizes. The Youth Group did a fantastic job again!

Philomena went as Mother Theresa

Blaise chose St Benedict. Here he has St Francis in a headlock. hmmm.....

Xavier wanted to be St Peter after finding this fishing net at our neighbor's garage sale.

Dominic chose St Issac Jogues after reading a story on him recently.

Happy FALL everyone~
