A Birthday Celebration

by | Mar 31, 2010 | Happy Birthday | 6 comments

Hubby’s birthday was last week. We gave him his gifts and handmade cards on his birthday, and we dropped the children off at a friend’s home so we could go out to dinner!! But since he gave up desserts for Lent, we waited until Sunday to have cake.

Hubby LOVES Oreos, so the girls picked out a Chocolate-Covered Oreo Cookie Cake and helped me make it for him.

We ended up being seven candles short, but I don’t think Hubby minded being thirty again.  ðŸ˜‰

Twinkle Toes has been so helpful lately and asked if she could serve the cake.

The cake was delicious, but so we wouldn’t be tempted during Holy Week, we took the remaining half out to my parents and siblings.

Rose had been up most of the previous two nights and ended up sleeping through the whole celebration.  (She had been spitting up a ton and had been very fussy, but I didn’t suspect a virus until Snuggles started throwing up yesterday morning at 5am and continued all day until really late last night.  He seems to be getting better, but hasn’t eaten anything yet, so we’ll see.   I am praying that they are the only two to get sick and that we are still able to attend at least some of the Triduum services at our Church and do some of our planned activities at home, which look very similar to what we’ve done in the past. . .)

Happy Birthday Hubby!  We love you!

    Happy Birthday to him. Cake looks delicious. One of my family's favorite cakes that I make is a white cake with double stuff oreos all crushed up and cooked in the batter. So moist and yummy. Oreos are the best. Hope everyone stays well and you ahve a wonderful rest of Holy Week and Easter

    Happy birthday to your husband! It looks like a wonderful celebration, and how nice that the two of you got to go out to dinner … alone! =)

    I pray no one else gets sick. It's hard being sick during the "ordinary" times of the year, but during holidays, it is just that much worse. (Been there, done that. Ugh!)

    Prayers for health are being sent your way …

    Thank you for the prayers! So far today no one else has gotten sick. . . I'm hoping it stays that way! 🙂

    Amy ~ I added a link to the recipe in the post. It was really simple to make, using a box mix, etc…

    Sarah ~ It was nice! We did take the baby with us. Of course the waitress had to ask if she was our first. lol!

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.
