Decorating Sugar Skulls

by | Nov 6, 2008 | All Souls Day, Crafts | 3 comments

I mentioned in my post Fasting and Feasting for All Hallows’ Eve, All Saints’ Day and All Souls’ Day that “I had also hoped to make Sugar-Candy Skulls this year, but unfortunately I never got around to ordering the supplies.”

Well, I was so surprised when a box arrived in the mail, just a few days later, filled with ready made Sugar Skulls and all the supplies we would need to decorate them! They were sent from Mary at Our Domestic Church, who I have so enjoyed getting to know through blogging.


Rascal made the one with the orange feather and told me that he was a Viking. “That’s why he has a helmet on.”

Didn’t they turn out cute?! It’s pretty easy to tell which ones the girls made, and which one the boys made… The girls all added earrings to theirs! 🙂

    I wonder… what do the earrings attach to?! LOL

  2. Mary Machado

    They did a great job of decorating. I’m so glad they enjoyed it!

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.
