Celebrating our Guardian Angels

What a beautiful day to celebrate our guardian angels! This morning we read two sweet stories of Wupsy, a guardian angel, from the Catholic Children's Treasure Box books we're borrowing from my generous sister-in-law. (We've not yet gotten to Angel in the Waters, Pascual and the Kitchen Angels, or the guardian angel story in Devotional Stories for Little Folks, but the day's not over yet!)

We also did a really neat art project with colored bubbles (for "B" week!) which, when dry, made beautiful backgrounds for some guardian angel drawings! Meghan didn't want to draw on hers, but here are Dylan's (on the left) and Caitlyn's. So pretty!

Early this morning I started a batch of Angel Kisses, so they had plenty of time to bake while we read and worked on our angel pictures! They made a lovely snack before lunch, and they are just so easy to make! Many thanks to Dawn, again, for sharing this lovely idea!

Tonight we're having angel hair pasta for dinner, and then I'm off to work, but only until one! Yay! The rest of the weekend promises to be filled with family fun, and I'm really looking forward to enjoying every minute of it! Happy feast day!

Angel of God, my guardian dear, to whom God's love commits me here,
ever this day, be at my side, to light and guard, to rule and guide.

I love hearing about all of the amazing things you do with your kids.
I think of you especially during this season because I know how much you love fall.
