They are in love with their costumes. Luke, especially, is giddy with excitement. We took them to trick-or-treat at a local college on Sunday and Luke told people in all seriousness that his name was Jake. He overheard some little kids talking about his costume and he grabbed his sword out of the stroller and started waving to them, all in character.

Feast of St. Clare LIVING SCRIPTURE - August 10, 2013 Clare was a beautiful Italian noblewoman who became the Foundress of an order of nuns now called "Poor Clares." When she heard St. Francis of Assisi preach, her heart burned with a great desire to imitate Francis and to live a poor humble life for Jesus.
