    Jessica!!!!! Oh my goodness! That is incredible!

  2. Kelly

    WOW!!! That's a lot of progress for one week! Hope they move that fast on the inside 🙂

    How exciting! It's like Extreme Home Makeover!

  4. Erin


    Love seeing the pictures:):) I didn't realise you were so nestled amongst the trees, lovely.

  5. Patty

    Isn't it fun to see how much more room you'll have?! Exciting.

  6. Sarah

    It's coming along so nicely! We are enjoying watching the progress on our house, too … Every day is one step closer to completion! Hooray!!!

  7. Nancy Carabio Belanger

    Wow, they work quickly! How exciting to see your plans come to fruition! I am happy for you all.

    Jessica, Looks like this terrific addition will add so much space to your home. I noticed the trusses have a large empty space in the middle. Will this serve as additional attic/storage space for you?

  9. Karla in MN

    Hooray! It is so nice to see how your new space will tie in with the existing space…it will be such a fantastice familiy space for you!

    Our walls on our addition are going up this week…it is so fun to watch. It really helps to see it in 3-d! God bless,

    Oh My, I am a day late and a dollar …well you know…I want to know "Is the family growing with the house or is the house growing with the family? Tee hee~! The pictures are great Jessica and wonderful to watch. Thanks for sharing! I am in the process of going the other direction, simplifying and moving to a smaller place. It is that time in life now. Bummers!

    Thank you everyone!

    Cathy ~ Yes, that will be an attic/storage area for us!! We are still trying to figure out where we will put the access – either in the laundry room ceiling (it would be tight) or a door off the back of the house).

    PJ ~ The house is most definitely growing with the family! 😉 When we bought it I was pregnant with our oldest and it was only just over 1000 sq ft. We added on (bedrooms and bathrooms) when I was pregnant with Chiquita and now it's time to expand the living areas.

    I just love watching the progress. I wish you could post floor plans like they do in Better Homes and Gardens so we can see the before and "after" in the spaces you achieved! God bless on your very big undertaking!

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.
