Recipes for St. George

whose feast day is tomorrow!

Our cake is ready to be frosted, as soon as I make the frosting. Yum!! My boys are SO excited… they can’t wait to slay the dragon!

    Oh, cool! We were planning on celebrating St. George, but is inspiring to see that someone is actually preparing in advance!

    Hi Jessica!
    I have been reading, just not commenting as much!!

    I am planning on making our cake tonight, Christine is coming for lunch tomorrow and we will slay the dragon then!

    Are you going to freeze the cake before cutting it? Are you using homemade frosting or canned? I got canned, but could do homemade! I am going to wing it on decorations, as we have lots of stuff around, hopefully, that will work!

    With no camera, I am a little sad, no one will see the cake, except us! The kids will love it!

    Have a great day!!

    I hadn’t thought about freezing the cake first! That is a wonderful idea! I have the body cut, but I think I will freeze the other cake before cutting it. Thanks!! I have five 2 pound bags of Powdered Sugar in my cupboard (I kept buying more at Christmas–each time wondering if I had picked some up yet!! Then we got sick and I never used any of it!). So, I think I will be making it. Although, if I had a couple cans of ready made, I would definitely go that route!

    Doesn’t Christine have a camera?? I’m sure she would bring it 🙂 I’d love to see your dragon too!!

    I will bring it. I am lucky to go somewhere else to slay a dragon.

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.
