Annie’s Birthday Party!

    Annie had a nun-themed birthday party!  Her friends came to our house dressed in black, and we provided them with wimples and veils (white and black t-shirts–NO SEWING!).  After lunch, cake and ice cream, we visited a nearby convent.
    The nuns were incredibly gracious: the held a “chapter meeting,” instructed the children in prayer, then had them do chores.  After cookies and tea, they had “choir practice,” followed by a decade and a Marian procession and May Crowning.  It was amazing!  The Nashville Dominicans are such a blessing!
