Our Little Saints

This was one of the few photos I was able to get of Snuggles.
He was dressed as St. Anthony.

Saint Patrick
Patron of Ireland

Saint John Berchmans
Patron of Altar Boys
Saint Therese of Lisieux
The Little Flower

(This photo was taken in front of a beautiful “Heavenly Backdrop” that Marci put together for photos!! This was just one of her many awesome additions to this years party!)

Saint Clare of Assisi
One more… Just because…

The Group Photo

(Even more children arrived after this photo was taken.
Including adults, we had over 100 people in attendance this year!)


  1. Regina

    looks like fun! maybe next yr we will make the trip

  2. Shelly

    now where did you get the monstrance for st. clare? Darling. they are all so incredibly darling!

  3. Jessica Gordon

    Thanks! I thought so too! 😉

    My boys let St. Clare borrow their monstrance for the evening.

    The boys each have Mass kits from Our Fathers House –one we purchased as Rascal’s Christmas gift one year, and we were surprised with another kit that very same Christmas from some friends, so they each have their own! — and the monstrance is an add on to that kit which I picked up (at a discount) when I was in Washington last May for the homeschool conference. They *LOVE* it!!!

    Oh, they look so beautiful!! We had our party tonight, I will have to post on my private blog!

    I don’t think I got a picture of all the kids together in the whole group…I think I was trying to get my son to run to get in the picture (he was helping daddy) and then I missed my chance for a shot of the whole group!!

    It was a fun and crazy weekend though! Your Saints costumes look beautiful!

  5. Marci

    so much fun… AND your kid’s costumes were GREAT!!!

  6. Amy

    It was so much fun! And your kids were adorable!

  7. Nancy Carabio Belanger

    How sweet! Of course I love the Little Flower costume! 😉 What a wonderful time you all had. I am interested in knowing more about the patron saint for altar boys. I will have to Google his name! Thanks for sharing!

  8. The Wades

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.
