Feast of St. Joseph


Our feasting began last evening with a trip to Marino's Deli in Northeast Minneapolis. They are celebrating their anniversary so the kids each received a free spumoni flavored pizzelle! We picked up a large cheese pizza and a dozen assorted flavor pizzelles for our celebration tonight. We still have half a lasagna left from a baby meal delivered to us earlier this week. After much discussion on what we should do for our St. Joseph Altar, this is what we came up with. The kids colored pictures from Charlotte's site which I taped up to the wall behind the altar. I didn't get around to baking so I have a symbolic "wheat bundle" candle to commemorate the bread. There is our dish of pizzelles up by St. Joseph! We included a tiny rosary holder in the shape of a church, fruit, votives, candles, a bottle of wine, pictures of the Good Shepherd, the Holy Family, and our sweet Daddy! We even have a woven, wood fish!

Next, I went over to Evann's site to check out how to make a 3D mini altar. The kids did the coloring, and I cut & glued the symbols onto three boxes that I wrapped in gold foil wrapping paper. I can't believe I had these things in the house! It just took a bit of looking! What a fun morning of crafting & education for the kids. We all learned a lot and had fun in the process!
