Mardi Gras Party 2015

Don't forget to wear your sashes next Sunday, February 15th for our Mardi Gras Celebration!  Please be a the annex by 8:30 for set up!  More hands make for lighter (and faster) work!  Here are the pictures from last year to get us motivated!

St. Angela Mericci


We had an awesome presentation of St. Angela Mericci tonight from the Corbin ladies.  We learned the meaning of prudence and made adorable paper bag books for the Rosary.  Such a cute idea and all you need is several paper bags folded in half and stapled together.  Then we added the prayers of the Rosary and made cute cards with the mysteries of the rosary that slide into the ready made pockets of the brown paper bags. This idea of using paper bags to make books could be used with anything.

 Never measure your generosity by what you give, but rather by what you have left.

March 2, 2015 Little Flower Tea Party

I just thought of something, why don't we make this dinner, we can do small sandwiches and then veggie trays and fruit.  If you can think of something I forgot on this list please let me know!

We will need:
 plastic table cloths 5
Pink Lemonade (for tea)
Cookies or cupcakes (1 per girl)
Peanut butter sandwiches
another type of sandwiches with no peanuts
I have the tea cups and plates.

Please let me know what you would like to bring!

Special item:
Last year each girl brought one gift to give each others.  This could be a special quote, a card, small notebook, pencil, treat, just something that symbolizes a virtue or saint we have learned about this year. The girls must try and come up with this idea on their own.  Sisters may give one thing from both of them.

Wreath II October 2014

Wow, another year is about to begin for our Little Flower Group!  Time seems to move so quickly.  We had to say "goodbye" to some very special Little Flowers this year but we have also welcomed some very special new Little Flowers to our group.  We begin our first class tomorrow with St. Faustina.  I can't wait to share Sister Faustina's story with our little group.

Tea Party and Badging Ceremony


We began with the St. Therese prayer then each girls was called upon to read a virtue and the memory verse that went with that virtue.  After reading their verse we lit a candle then the girls received their petals and a rose.  For the future I will make sure each girl knows ahead of time what verse they will be reading so they can practice at home.  The girls were a little nervous.  It was a great way to review all we learned this past year.  I am so proud of our Little Flowers!

Sacrifice beads.  A mother bought the beads in a variety pack, cord, a variety of crucifixes, and the Marian Medals for the Sacrifice Beads. The girls enjoyed creating their special beads.  Directions are in a previous post.

Our delicious food.  Each families was asked to bring an item to share.  We had no doubles of anything, the miracle of the Catholic potluck!
