St. Patrick’s Day Treats

by | Mar 18, 2009 | Kids in the Kitchen, St. Patrick's Day | 7 comments

Since we had so much fun last month decorating Oreos, we decided (back then) to decorate more for St. Patrick’s day. This time my girls used green sprinkles and (I used) green glitter gel to make Shamrock Oreos.

“Good St. Patrick traveled far, to teach God’s Holy Word and when he came to Erin’s sod, a wondrous thing occurred. He plucked a shamrock from the earth and held it in His hand to symbolize the Trinity that all might understand. The first leaf for the Father, and the second for the Son, the third leaf for the Holy Spirit, all three of them in one.”

I hope you all had a blessed St. Patrick’s Day!! I have a few more pictures I’d love to share, but it is going to have to wait… I just realized it is 2am, and I need to get some sleep!

    I’m marking this idea for next year. We had “green” milk in little Starbucks Frappacino bottles (they look like vintage milk bottles when the label is off) and Shamrock pancakes. You inspired me to get my wheels turning in the creativity department and the results were so much fun!

    Your girls are so sweet, Jessica, and they are very serious about decorating cookies! 😉

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.
