Wedding Highlights ~ Getting Ready

by | Jun 29, 2009 | My Siblings, Pictures, Weddings | 7 comments

Here is a picture of my brother with his Groomsman and Ring Bearer.
In the front row, on either side of Brian, are two more of my brothers and Rascal.

I was lucky enough to snatch a picture with my brother and Dad just before the wedding.
They both looked so handsome!

The very excited Flower Girl and Ring Bearer…

…anxiously awaiting the wedding to begin.

It is not often that we have an opportunity to have someone take a picture of our family…

…and next to IMPOSSIBLE to get one with everyone smiling/looking at the camera. This is as close as we could get! =)

It is also really hard to get ALL of my parents 12 children together in one place.

This photo is just missing Jamie since she lives across the country and had just delivered the newest grandchild/niece a couple days before the wedding.

**I do have more photos to share from the wedding and reception, but first I need to go make my children breakfast. I’ll be back soon!!

    What a beautiful family! And look at your mother! Gorgeous! After 12 kids?! Wow! I'm only guessing that's your mom because she's next to your dad. Otherwise, I'd think she were one of the kids! Great pictures of you, too! Very nice picture of you and your hubby and kids. God bless.

    What a beautiful and handsome looking family group you are! How did you ever find those little tiny dark dress up pants for that little guy? Amazing! You sure have it altogether! God Bless!

    Thank you!

    Yes, my mom DOES NOT look like she has had 12 children. =) lol!

    Snuggles black pants are actually hand-me-downs from his oldest brother. They are black cords from the Christmas line at Gymboree. Gymboree carries them every year and I LOVE them!

    Looks like you got some great shots! The one with all the guys is great and all your siblings! I bet Jamie really wishes she could have been there.

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.
