An Afternoon with Auntie

by | Jan 11, 2011 | Kids Artwork, Thank You | 2 comments

Last Christmas A year ago the girls each received gift cards for lunch and an afternoon of pottery painting with their Great Aunt Bridget.   It took us nearly a year to finally schedule the date, but it was well worth the wait and they had such a great time!

Lunch at Red Robin

It was so hard deciding what to paint, but Twinkle Toes finally ended up choosing a pretty little platter and Chiquita opted for a darling little tea set.


Aunt Bridget painted a cute little bowl to use for Salsa.   I so wanted to stay and paint too, but Rose had a doctors appointment (this was just before her last echo) and so we had to leave. . . 
I came back from the doctors to find Twinkle Toes painting her whole platter “salsa red” with a pink border… Interesting!  

Chiquita was so cute to watch paint and so focused most of the time! 🙂 
When they were all finished painting, the masterpieces were left to be dipped in a clear glaze and fired in the kilns! 

Here are the finished results, which my Aunt dropped off yesterday:
The girls were so excited! Didn’t they turn out pretty?!?

 Thank you Aunt Bridget!!

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.
