Pentecost Sunday & Mother’s Day!

by | May 12, 2008 | Cake Decorating, Holidays, Liturgical Year, Pentecost | 7 comments

I hope all you mother’s had a wonderful Mother’s Day! Mine was! This morning I woke up to lovely cards made by all my children and a Belgian Waffle Maker from my hubby! I have always wanted one of those!!!

I didn’t take very many pictures, it’s just not the same without my Canon Rebel, but I did get one of most of the children blowing out the candles on our Pentecost Cake with a “mighty wind!”

Believe it or not, I didn’t have even one taste of that cake. I got my Food Sensitivity results back on Thursday, and that cake is totally out of the question. Not even one little lick of frosting! I did enjoy looking at it all day though! 🙂

With the list of Food Sensitivities/Intolerances that I have, it’s no wonder I have had low energy and a hard time losing weight! I hope to post about it soon, in the hopes that some of you out there may have some suggestions for me, but right now I need to get to sleep!

**OH! I just noticed that my sister posted a darling picture of my mom! You’d never know that she has 12 children and 7 grandchildren by looking at her, would you?!?! Love you Mom!

    Your cake turned out beautiful!! Did I tell you Happy Mother’s day yet? You are a super mom!

    I didn’t get a picture of the cake lit, by the time I took the picture, they had just blown them out!! It was close, because their cheeks were still puffed up!

    I didn’t have any cake either, (only because it was not chocolate) I did, however lick the frosting spatula! I made cool whip frosting!! Just in case you don’t have the recipe, it’s so easy and light.

    Cool whip
    1 cup milk
    1 pkg pudding (sugar free or regular any flavor)

    That’s it!

    I love your blog!! I am just wondering if you have posted somewhere else about your food intolerances/ sensitivities… or if you could tell me a little more about the test you had done? Thank you so much!

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.
