Picture Books and Raging Battles

Last Sunday afternoon, following the canonization of Saint John XXIII and Saint John Paul II, I happened to capture a few darling pictures of our little two year old looking through one of the books that he found in April's Book Basket.   (Note: This post contains affiliate links.) 

In an effort to "Keep it Real" I also took a few pictures of the battle that was raging just ten feet away. It was definitely inspired by a new St. Michael pillow, some new books, and the St. George The Dragonslayer Iron Whirligig we had purchased after seeing Charlotte's and had just set up outside near our garden.

It's a good thing I had a zoom lens on the camera!

Can you tell that Rose is surrounded by brothers?

She had dressed herself in two of her favorite kitty shirts layered, a long skirt, and a pink playsilk.

Bud ignored the whole thing and just kept reading about JPII!


  1. Oh my! Bud looks so sweet and that battle looks fierce! ;)

  2. Fun make believe battles. I have two boys that are continually trying to build and wield swords. I may have to purchase some play ones in the future. Great action pictures!
