Painted Saints: September Edition!

Better late than never!  I know that it’s the THIRD week of September already, but I wanted to post some of the new wooden painted saints that I created recently.  We have Blessed Mother Teresa and Saint Padre Pio (and Mother Mary, see 2nd picture below) for September saints…and well, Jesus is ALWAYS in season, right?      I am working on another post for yet MORE ideas to incorporate these little wooden saints into the regular crafts, activities, traditions and routines that we already enjoy with our kids. See What to do with Painted Saints…part 1 and check out how we use them in Checkers, Snakes & Ladders and Trouble to add a little Catholic culture ro regular family fun!   Watch for new ways that we plan to incorporate our own little growing army of painted saints.  We’re thinking about chore charts and treasure hunts… Advent countdowns and nativities… and another popular tradition that we can’t wait to convert 2 Catholic!  Make sure that you are subscribed by email to Equipping Catholic Familes for future posts!

I finally have an intro page…complete with photos from our photo shoot yesterday.  Wow…it’s difficult to get 7 people with their eyes open, nice smiles, out of the shadow (Kelly!) and looking in the same direction, all at the same time, especially when one is only 19 months.  This is my new Intro Page!

Knitted Nativity: sorry if you don’t have an Auntie Ingrid!

Linked up to the Nativity Activity Linky!

Auntie Ingrid has knitted amazing gifts for us over the years.  She knitted outfits for my brother and me…and those same outfits have been worn by my kids!  She is known for her amazing baby blankets…and I’m proud to say that our family with 5 kids probably has the biggest collection!

Monthly Devotions: February is the month of the HOLY FAMILY

Isn’t it interesting that although Christmas is over and we are approaching Lent, the Monthly Devotion for February is the Holy Family

Just when we put our nativities away, we have an excuse to reflect again on the Holy Family as a model for our own family life.  We remember life with a small baby, a toddler, a child, a tween, a teen and a young adult.
