Today was our parish's Saint Michael's Day Party! We always choose the Sunday between Halloween and Saint Michael and the Bodiless Powers feast day (November 8th). The children dress up as angels, saints, or clergy and then line up for the adult to guess who they are. We also enjoyed a cook out (probably the last of the year) and each family brought something exciting to do. This year's fun included: pumpkin bowling (roll a pumpkin at water bottles), a doughnut tree (we hung doughnuts from ribbon all along our pergola and the little ones try to eat them off the ribbon without using their hands), a bonfire for roasting marshmallows, bobbing for apples, and a candy corn guessing game. Every year we try to make our party better and we are hoping to have some trails cleared for a "hayride" (the mower and wagon) through the woods for the next one!
