Creative Cabins

by | Feb 11, 2008 | Crafts, History, Holidays, Kids in the Kitchen | 3 comments

Tomorrow is Abraham Lincoln’s Birthday and next Monday is Presidents’ Day. If you are looking for a fun craft idea to do with your kids, check out Martha Stewart’s Presidents’ Day Log Cabin! I think it looks like such fun to make. It is made out of pretzels, and will make a perfect Lenten snack! I am sure my boys will enjoy making a cabin out of something other than Lincoln Logs for a change–although, I have a feeling, they will probably want to do BOTH!

**UPDATE: Dawn has an AMAZING list of ideas to do for Lincoln’s Birthday! I am saving it out to use in a couple months when we will be studing Abraham Lincoln in History. Thank you Dawn!

    We made one last year and the kids loved it. A few days later, they announced that gigantic peanut butter recall and sure enough…our cabin was contaminated. It went in the trash.

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.
