Our St Joseph celebrations began with ds(7) and his dad bringing home a bunch of half a dozen red roses; great perfect for the altar. I took my lead from a suggestion on this forum and chose sloppy joes for the main course and cream puffs for dessert. Ds(11)'s middle name is Joseph and has always had a special devotion to the head of the Holy family so it was a special family celebration!
