On this wonderful saint's feast day, our Little Flowers girls virtue club met and discussed St. Therese of Lisieux and her life. My daughter remarked that when you ask St. Therese for something she brings you a rose..... kinda like Santa!
A lovely craft was planned and then the girls had snacks. We made pumpkin cookies with a little flower of frosting.
In the evening, our church had it's First Friday Mass.
My youngest son is training to serve Father at the altar, like his older brothers. My husband is his trainer.
Last night he got to light the candles....
The next morning, as is tradition, we had our First Saturday in October Pumpkin Pancakes with hot apple cider sauce!
October is here! A month of many wonderful saints, colorful happenings outdoors...there is so much to appreciate....my favorite time of the year.
"Delicious autumn! My very soul is wedded to it, and if I were a bird I would fly about the earth seeking the successive autumns." - George Eliot
The glow begins.
