In all honesty, I didn’t even think about celebrating “Cinco de Mayo” until this morning (when I saw the link on Crafty Crow) to the Mexican Flag Mosaics. Since we had most of our schoolwork completed early, I thought I’d let my children make them. Before I knew it, we were having quite the celebration! Despite the lack of planning, we had a fun day!

Happy Cinco de Mayo!

    Praise be to God for your yummy & fun day!

    Whatever the LORD wishes he does in heaven and on earth, in the seas and in all the deeps. Ps 135:6

    Ooh, those cupcakes are so cute! (next year, as we have quite a few leftover cupcakes from the rosary)

    Ironically, we finished our unit on Spain on this day, and Cinco De Mayo is a celebration of Mexico’s freedom from Spain, right?

    We decided to go out to a Mexican Restaurant to celebrate anyway…we just had tacos the other night!

    What fun! I want to be one of your kids.

    Is that a little cookie or mint on the top of the cinco de mayo cupcakes? They turned out super cute!

    Thank you! It is actually just an upside down Hershey Kiss! 🙂

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.
