In Honor of the Most Holy Rosary

by | Oct 8, 2008 | Cake Decorating, Liturgical Year, Marian, Our Lady of the Rosary | 8 comments

As I mentioned earlier, today was the Feast of the Most Holy Rosary.

I had invited a couple families to meet us at the park, but the weather just wouldn’t cooperate and so they all came over to our home instead! All I had to do was bake the cupcakes and brew some coffee. Marci brought the crafts, and Amy brought juice for the children. As soon as everyone arrived, we prayed the rosary together, and then Amy, Marci and I got to visit while the children colored pictures, made rosaries, played outside, and ate cupcakes. Here are a few pictures from our celebration.

Following the Rosary, we colored pictures of Our Lady of the Rosary:

Our Cupcake Rosary:

I took this photo last night to post over at Catholic Cuisine before packing it up to take to the park. When plans changed and everyone was headed over here, I decided to set it up on my hutch so we could use the table for crafts, etc.

This time I decided to use frosted mini-cupcakes for the cross.
Can you tell I am still in a very pink mood from
last week? 🙂


“These are great! I can fit the *whole* thing in my mouth!!”

The poor boys are squinting in the sun, and I *really* need to get my boys some jeans!

And while typing this post, I listened to a great sermon:

We kept it simple, but still had an absolutely lovely time!

    What a great way to spend the day! We intended to make rosaries, my kids have done so before. Friday is our lighter school day so hopefully we’ll make them then as we wanted to give them to friends.

    Jessica, Thank you so much for taking the time to share your beautiful life with us all. Are you all familiar with Catholic Music Network? We love finding new Catholic artist to listen to. One of our favorites is Danielle Rose. She has an awesome double cd named Mysteries. She has written a song for each mystery of the rosary. It really brings each mystery to life! God Bless, Lori

  5. Amy

    See Regina, we are working towards making you move back! It is all our evil plan. Can you hear that evil cackle… yes, it is us.

  6. Marci

    THANK YOU SOOOO much for inviting us! I (WE) had a great time and I loved being able to visit with you and Amy, and I too wish Regina could have been there. Thanks again!

    No, I am not familiar with the Catholic Music Network. I will have to check it out. Thanks!

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.
