Expensive Balloons

by | Mar 3, 2008 | Happy Birthday | 6 comments

So… Saturday was one of our very old good friends birthday!

We all got together and went out for pizza… I couldn’t believe it when I found out that they charge $25 for EACH BALLOON that gets loose in there restaurant. Isn’t that crazy?!?!

Anyhow, last night I heard hubby tell the kids–after trying to recover the balloons many times for them–“Next time I am going to charge you 25 cents!”

This morning, all 5 of them were on the ceiling in one room or another… It’s a GOOD THING this didn’t happen at the restaurant!!!

Well… I am off to the dentist for a filling… Say a prayer for me, shots are my least favorite thing in the world!! sniffle, sniffle…

    Did I say old???

    Yes, I seem to recall hearing that. Now if I was a mean person I’d talk about the present your Mom gave you for your birthday. But of course I wouldn’t do that on a public forum like this 🙂

    Well.. just know that I wouldn’t give you such a hard time if you REALLY were old! Honestly, 37, is hardly old, by today’s standards anyways.

    And, in case the world wants to see what my dear mom gave me for (turning older) my birthday… They can see for themselves in my “You know your old…” post in the archives on January 17, 2007!

    Looks like I beat you to it! 🙂

    Actually, 7 years IS a long time… Especially when I think that I’ve had 5 kids in that amount of time!! Woah!! That means I could have TEN by the time I am OLD!!!!!!! Oh MY!

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.
