April Shower of Photos :: Day 9

by | Apr 10, 2008 | Baby News, Marian, Shower of Photos | 10 comments

This afternoon, while I was taking care of Snuggles & Twinkle Toes (she is getting really sick–we will probably head to the doctors in the morning), I let the boys and Chiquita go play outside.

I noticed the boys were riding bikes. Rascal has been, any chance he gets, since he realized last Friday that he no longer needs those training wheels!

You’d never know that it has only been a few days… He has just taken off!

But I couldn’t find Chiquita… She was up on the back hill picking wild flowers.

Here I zoomed in on her… I really need to get a better zoom lens.

“Look, momma, I picking fwowers!”

With no shoes on no less!!! “OH! Those are pretty! Come on down and get your shoes on!”

“But momma, I need to give them to Mare-we!”

Yes, she has her moments of being a stinker, but my soon to be 3 year old is turning into quite the sweet (and very determined) little girl. Now to get back to the sick ones…

Mary, Health of the Sick ~ Pray for Us!

    I pray that your daughter feels better soon. Chiquita is so cute, as I am sure you know. May Our Lady of Grace always watch over her and her siblings.

    OH, I love your photos!! my favorite is the one with Chiquita bending down picking wildflowers, so precious!! Don’t you just love it when they learn to ride on their own? SO fun!!!

    I hope and pray you are feeling better soon, if I lived closer, you know I’d bring some homemade chicken noodle soup, bread and cookies!! I wish we did!

    Isn’t it priceless when little stinkers can be a breath of fresh air too 😉
    They look they had a nice time playing outside.

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.
