…for Captain’s 9th Birthday!

GeoPuzzle USA and Canada from Grandpa and Grandma

Lots of cards and gifts from the other Grandpa and Grandma, Aunts and Uncles, and the Neighbors (who have not missed a birthday since we moved in over 9 years ago)!

(I just love that my children LOVE receiving “learning” toys!! 😉 Especially since school is about to begin again! And I wish I had Rascal’s reaction to Captain receiving Liberty Kids on video — it was so funny! I have never seen him so excited! )

Captain had a fun birthday and was sad to see it end since (in his words) he “won’t have a ninth birthday ever again.” He is growing up way too fast!!

    Great party theme!! Great cake, you are soooo talented!!

    I also love the educational presents…did you hint to Grandpa and Grandpa?

    I didn't realize our oldest were so close in age! (Jedi turned 9 in March) Sure wish we lived closer!

    Happy birthday to your sweet 9 year old and many blessings to him!

  2. Jessica Gordon

    Thanks Jamie! It would be wonderful if you lived closer!!

    Yes, my mom usually asks if there is something particular she could/should get my kiddos… (At Christmas it was a new sweater/coat each) She knows we don't have much room left in our home and wanted to make sure it was practical and would be used. =)

    I love the cake. Where did you find that golfer figurine. It looks retro!
    My kids are huge Liberty's Kids fans too. Why don't you come over and watch some with us? 😉

    Happy Birthday to your son! Great cake! Good job! Next year he'll boast double digits, right where my baby is now. bawhahaha, time does fly all too quickly doesn't it? boohoo.

  5. Jessica Gordon

    Oh that would be fun, wouldn't it Charlotte! =)

    The golf figures came from Michaels actually. The golfer came in a little bag (from the cake decorating section) which also contained a few golf balls, greens and extra clubs.

    Goodness! I can't believe he is nine already! It is crazy! The cake is awesome, Jessica!!

    Dear Jessica,
    isn't it fun to have these themed parties for the children. It is so interesting to look back and see what everyone was interested in that year. Great memories to be sure and a great job from you.
    God Bless
    Is the Laptop Geo safari game very good? Is it worth the cost of shipping here?

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.
