It’s picture time!
Here is Big Girl as Shelob. The top one is outside our home, the bottom one is at Hubby’s office.
Little Girl dressed as Saint Scholastica. The costume is actually one I made for Big Girl about three years ago, so she could be St. Teresa of Avila for All Saints’ Day at our parish. (This was before I realized that some nuns wear something aside from black!) We searched for what order wears black and then for a saint in that order. Viola! The Benedictines do, and Saint Scholastica was! Little Girl rehearsed telling people who Scholastica was, but few asked her much past, “Who are you?” or “Are you a singing nun?” or “Is she the flying nun?” (No, silly, the flying nun wore white.) The habit is in rough shape these days because it is actually a very popular dress-up item in our house.
This one is, as Big Girl put it, Shelob trying to attack Saint Scholastica.
Both girls have expressed a desire to dress as saints next year, so we’ve got a whole year to learn about different women (and girls) who have been canonized. Hooray!
We’ll take back our night, little by little.
