Any suggestions?

    You’re kidding!!! That’s too funny.

    Oh, my goodness!! Don’t feed him!

    I have a question for you and answer at your leisure (is there such a thing?) well, when you get a chance. I am new to this blogging thing, and having a hard time finding balance with my time, reading the blogs especially. There are SO many wonderful ones out there. Each week, my favorites has gotten longer.

    Email me, or post about it, please, pretty please?

    I’m NOT kidding!!! And we DON’T feed them… (I have never been much of one for pets… maybe someday when the kids are older.) My kids enjoy chasing them away, that’s about it. What is ridiculous is that, there is at least 20 of them out there, and they haven’t even had babies yet! I have told the kids to try to stay away from them, after hearing that last turkey pecking on the door–they are getting pretty daring, and I don’t want one of them to get attacked! They have some strong beaks.

    Oh my! How about having your children use their imaginary play by being Daniel Boone. They can prepare them for your freezer?? LOL Golly, are they wild, yours, or flying in and attracted to something else? Funny!

  6. Jessica Gordon

    They are Wild. I have no idea what attracts them to here. We have lots and lots of deer as well. The UPS man stopped the other day and started talking about all the deer, and telling me things about them… And those guys usually don’t stand in one spot for more than a couple seconds.

    We do back to the woods, and there is a creek nearby, so it could be that… I don’t know. The boys do pretend to shoot the turkeys already. They are constantly talking about getting one for Thanksgiving!

    When I lived out in the country growing up we had a flock of turkeys that loved our place. It was horrible! They roosted in the trees around our pool, so you would go swimming and they were all there watching you. It was very creepy.
    All I can think of is a dog to keep them away. I have a very big and loving dog that is good with kids. 🙂 You can have him anytime you wish! But, of course, then you are dealing with the other kind of fecal matter.
    If you do kill them, cook them upsaide down, so the juices will flow to the breast. Trust me on this. Been there.

    I have a shotgun and will travel

    lol! I think you should take the guy up on the shotgun offer or say a prayer to St. Francis. He was so good with animals!

    Also, I got attacked by one when I was a kid. I was 5 and it knocked my over and the basicly flapped its wings on me (they can be strong!) and tried to jump on me.

    I would get a BB gun and fire it at them. If they dont feel threatened they’ll stay! Say a prayer to ask St. Anthony to tell them to heed your warnings or you will send for the guy with the shotgun! lol

    Good thing you guys are FAR away–hubby and boys have been out soliciting permission from farmers to hunt their land in a week when the season opens! I’d say if they get any more friendly–yum!

    Amy Caroline,
    So true, I love St.Anthony too! I was thinking of the story when St.Francis tammed the wolf. But, now that you mentioned it, St. Anthony gave a sermon to all the creatures in the sea and they listened!!! What amazing gifts these Saints are to us! How neat things work out….I was thinking of St.Francis the whole time, but St. Anthony just poured out my fingers with out my knowledge 🙂

    Jessica…you must petition them both!! St. Anthony said so….lol

  14. Jessica Gordon

    Hubby says come on over Tony!!

    In the meantime, I will pray to St. Francis to keep the turkeys calm around my children, and to St. Anthony to help the turkeys find a new home! 🙂

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.
