Pastorinhos party

Yesterday I had a "pastorinhos" party and it was wonderful. The theme was the little shepherds (pastorinhos) of Fatima, Blessed Francisco and Jacinta. Yesterday was their saint day in the Church, even though they aren't canonized yet. We celebrated with friendship, the most "peasant-like" food I could make, sheep made out of toilet paper rolls and cotton balls, flowers, wine, angel cutouts, rosaries and cakes with acorn shapes. The little shepherds would give their snacks their mothers had packed for them to poor children they'd see on the street and eat acorns instead. After the party, my heart was full, full, FULL! I love intimate dinner parties at home and I love friendship.
