Our Thanksgiving

by | Nov 24, 2007 | Crafts, Thanksgiving | 0 comments

We had a great time at Tug & Regina’s for Thanksgiving! Thank you so much for having us over! We had so much fun, that I never even got my camera out! Can you believe that?

Tug deep fried the turkey and it was delicious, just like last year! Regina’s sweet potatoes were super yummy! And I ate WAY too many rolls!

The adults had fun playing euchre and sequence. Regina & I winning each round!! I’m not competitive, by the way. 😉

The kids each made oreo and pine cone turkeys that turned out so cute! Regina & I ended up helping the kids with the pine cone turkeys since the feathers needed a bit of hot glue to stay put…

The pine cones came from our very own backyard. I had bought some at Michael’s while forgetting the fact that we live amidst many pine trees… Silly me. I came home and hubby said, “You didn’t actually BUY pine cones did you!” I replied, “Uuuummmm…. Ooopppss! Yep, I did… I’ll take them back!”

After all the pokes from the pine cones, I am now wondering if store bought pine cones are less poky than the wild ones? 🙂

Prayer of Mothers

Father in heaven, grant me the grace to appreciate the dignity which you have conferred on me. Let me realize that not even the Angels have been blessed with such a privilege—to share in your creative miracle and bring new Saints to heaven. Make me a good mother to all my children after the example of Mary, the Mother of your Son. Through the intercession of Jesus and Mary I ask your continued blessings on my family. Let us all be dedicated to your service on earth and attain the eternal happiness of your kingdom in heaven. Amen.

A Little About Me

Hi! I'm Jessica, a Roman Catholic wife and home educating mother to our nine children. I was home educated myself, along with my eleven younger siblings. I have a special devotion to St. Therese, through whom I have been given much help and many blessings--the beautiful "Shower of Roses" that she has sent my way! Here I will record a few of the blessings I treasure. Please remember that what you see here is just a little glimpse at our lives, so please say a prayer for us, as we continue to strive for holiness.
