Martinmas

Possum is 4 years and 6 months

Bandicoot is 2 years and 4 months

 

Martinmas is on 11th of November.  It is the traditional thanksgiving festival in Europe.  We don’t live in Europe, but I thought it would be a nice occasion to celebrate.

There was no way I was going to do a Lantern Walk with the boys – not in our lovely long days of daylight savings, but we did make these beautiful lumieres out of milk bottles.

Even this was under much duress as the it was such good bike riding weather and the boys were not happy about sitting still!

(Yes, that is Bandicoot crawling down the stairs on his stomach…)

In the few moments that they were actually still, I told them to story of St Martin and we discussed some things that we were thankful for.  That night at dinner, by the light of our lumieres, we added those things to our grace.
