Scenes from Christmas Day :: Around Our Home

Our Christmas Mantle
The Christmas Tree
At 4am Snuggles was running up and down the hall waking up all of his siblings…
They were all sent back to bed until morning! 😉

Another nativity set up under the tree,
reminding us of the very best gift on Christmas!

Stuffed Stockings
Advent Candles replaced with our Christ Candle
A close up of the baby Jesus placed inside a little niche we carved from the candle

    Dear Jessica,
    It must have been a beautiful day filled with wonderful family memories.
    God Bless

    Oh, I'm sure you must tire of this question, but where did you get the lovely stockings? My MIL made one for my daughter (with cute reindeer, sigh – love the Nativities and Angel!) but mama and papa still need them. :>) Thanks!

    Beautiful pictures… the stockings are gorgeous!

    I LOVE the Christ candle. What a great idea! I also love the stockings. Do you remember where you found them?

    It was a beautiful day!! I still have more photos to post too! =)

    Lenetta & Kelly ~ Being the perfectionist that I am, I often wish the stocking all matched (in size etc- no the decorations) but they are pretty aren't they?! The boys all have Nativity Stockings and the girls have Angel Stockings. Hubby bought Captains from a department store ( I think Meier & Franks) when he was a baby, and we have slowly added to the collection as we have had more children. Thankfully I ran across an Angel stocking on clearance a year or so ago and that ended up being Rose's stocking. (I had forgotten all about it and was worried that I couldn't find one for her… It HAS been difficult to find them!)

    However, a few weeks ago I DID find another beautiful Angel stocking at JCPenny's. Here is the link.

    Pretty! It looks peaceful and warm!

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.
