Someone’s Seven!

by | Aug 31, 2010 | Birthday Parties, Happy Birthday | 11 comments

Our contractor is not only doing an amazing job, he has the sweetest family!!  His wife, Jamie, surprised us (knowing that I’ve been on crutches & Sean’s out of town fighting fires) with pink cupcakes for Twinkle Toes’s 7th Birthday today!! 
Since this summer has been so crazy, we had decided to wait until next year to have her “big” birthday party with all of her friends, but it was so nice to have some extra company since Hubby had to miss her birthday. . . again!  The girls (the contractor and his wife have 3 girls, all close in age to our 3 girls) all dressed up and our little Twinkle Toes was able to have an impromptu “princess birthday party” after all! 

After we sang Happy Birthday and enjoyed the cupcakes, Twinkle Toes opened her gifts.  The first gift she opened was some new Calico Critters to add to her collection, the Hopscotch Rabbit Family!  Aren’t Calico Critters the cutest!?!  My girls love them! 


Speaking of Calico Critters, Rascal surprised his sister this morning with a little birthday celebration scene he had set up in the castle last night, after the girls fell asleep.  It was so cute!
Twinkle Toes also received a new skirt/outfit, a few fun cookbooks to help break in our new kitchen, a ladybug tree swing, a few fairy books, and an American Girl Doll (which she loved, even though it wasn’t the full-size version she had been hoping for. . .  maybe someday!).
The kids and I all went out to dinner and then picked up a small cake at Baskin Robbin’s before coming home.  We’ll bake the princess cake, which we had originally planned to make, to celebrate just one more time when her Daddy is home again.   We sure miss him!! 
Happy Birthday Twinkle Toes!!

    Happy Birthday, sweet girl! I pray your Daddy is home soon and can't wait to see the princess cake your Mommy makes in her new kitchen fit for a Queen! 🙂

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.
