I made these cookies for Monday for our first party....bad recipe!!
Jedi loved them, but not many others did!
They are cute, though, aren't they?
Our daytime Halloween homeschool party
We played games
We ate food
Then the costumed kiddos and mamas walked to the local nursing home
where the cute old people there loved seeing them!
Look at this cute old lady looking at my pumpkin!!
Afterward, the kiddos walked back and gave oral reports, skits, and piano recitals
Oh, and some 5 year olds told 5 year old jokes (like my 5 year old)
"There was a deer, who ran across the grass...why?"
"To pick an apple!"
I wish all you non-homeschoolers could see all these homeschoolers,
they are certainly not unsocialized, they have no inhibitions,
they just get up and do it with such confidence!
There are no bullies to give presentations in front of
They are confident because they are in positive environments all the time.
(excuse my little dig for homeschooling and it's benefits)
( I really don't think everyone should do it, I'm just defending our decision to do so)
Onto the All Saint's party that evening...
We have St Maxamilian Kolbe
(I stayed up til 1am painting that jacket!)
(wiped the face of Jesus on the way of the Cross)
St Joan of Arc
Mary, Queen of all Saints
as she says:
and Mary, Mother of Jesus
both littles lost their crowns and props in the van never to put them on again....
Sweetie Pie really liked this little puppy (St Bernard!)
who really liked her baby Jesus....
Jedi is in band and he and the other trumpet players played "Oh,When the Saints...Go Marching In..."
about 15 times while all the homeschool saints marched around the whole cafeteria...
It was a great night!
Usually our group has each family bring one carnival type game and we run it...
This year, the family that put it on, planned all the games and had mostly teens run them...
All we had to do was show up with our kiddos, bring some kind of finger food
and provide treats/prizes for the games!
It was really fun!
Happy All Saints!
