all saints' day...

(katherine 1st grade)
as i was going through old halloween photos for yesterday's post, i came across a little journal katherine had made. katherine went to holy name, a private, catholic school, for grades k-3. the school never celebrated halloween.
however, they did celebrate all saints' day (which is today). the older students dressed up like their favorite saints, respectively, and acted out fun skits for the younger students, who celebrated the day as a casual one (meaning they didn't have to wear their uniforms).
anyway, as i said, i found katherine's journal. i had to laugh because, as you will see, her journaling goes strait from halloween (she got her halloween on with her cover), quickly to all saints' day, to Christmas and cookies...

like mother like daughter:)

(journal cover, i told you kat got on her halloween whether holy name did or NOT;)

(all saints' day and already thoughts of snow days:)

(kat, will, and a tur-quoise sun(she told me she'd lost her yellow marker;), ha!!!)

(Christmas on the brain)

(of course she ate him!!! ginger-bread is one of kitty kat's favorites;)

so, now that halloween is behind us,
let the preparation for thanksgiving and...



love and blessings,
dani xx

ps. happy all saints' day!!!

This was so cute Dani. Have you saved very many of her school projects over the years. I wish I had saved more of my kid's things. At the time there were just so many and when you have 2 or 3 kids in grade school bringing stuff home everyday, it can be hard to put it in perspective and realize what little treasures they really are. You have been very wise.

It makes me sad to see Kaherine as a 1st grader! My son is in first grade and i feel like he will be Katherines age if I blink! How do they grow up so fast!
