On Saturday we celebrated Sr. Maria Guadalupe's feast day--which of course actually falls on December 12, but Saturday is a better day for a celebration!
We had a "flamingo" theme for the party!
In these pictures, you can see some of Sister's many gifts and surprises.
We spent the morning playing a fun game of "Flamingo Bingo" (which is basically regular bingo with flamingo trivia included). In the afternoon we met again in the community room to watch Sister open her gifts.
A cute doll made by one of the sisters. She made all the clothes for the doll too, except the shoes!
Sister received a fascinating book explaining how to make pine needle baskets--a traditional art practiced by Native Americans in this part of East Texas. Will this be our next project?
A gorgeous cross-stitch of Our Lady of Guadalupe done by one of the sisters. This was one of many beautiful handcrafts given to Sister.
We concluded our fun day with a showing of the movie "The Miracle of Our Lady of Fatima". It was a delightful celebration. We are so thankful for Sr. Maria Guadalupe and her leadership of our community. May God grant her many blessings!
