Hunting for Eggs on Easter Sunday

by | Apr 16, 2009 | Easter, Pictures | 7 comments

Easter morning, Easter morning, Easter morning dawning fine
Have to find the Easter eggs now, I’ve already picked up nine.

Fill the basket, fill the basket, fill the basket every time
Candy eggs and jelly beans are tucked behind each growing pine.

Bend and scramble, bend and scramble, bend and scramble, reach and climb.
Find each hidden Easter treat now, pick them up and they’ll be mine.

See them glow and see them glisten, see them glow and see them shine.
Join me with my Easter candy and together we will dine.

Happy Easter!

    Thank you Jennifer!

    The girls dresses were actually hand-me-downs this year. My youngest was wearing my oldest daughters dress from last year, and my oldest was wearing a dress my sister passed on to us. They are both in great condition though, and “new” to my girls… They loved wearing them! =)

    Love the pictures and the poetry! Snuggles reminds me so much of my little boy #4.

    These are hypnotic photos. You have such a great eye.

    Technical question….how do you get your photos to post in blocks like this?

    +JMJ+ ~ It really isn’t that difficult… I just upload the pictures (in Blogger) using the layout of “none” and choosing the size I want — I can put two small regular pictures next to each other, or 3 small portrait style pictures next to each other. I also like placing a small portrait style next to a medium sized regular photo (though I do adjust the size on those to make them line up just right… Then to get them to go next to each other you need to take out the space between the photo (just like you would to put two paragraphs together) Does that make sense?

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.
