A Candy Shoppe Birthday Party

by | Apr 3, 2011 | Birthday Parties, Cousins | 5 comments

My precious little niece is turning one this week, and this afternoon we headed over to her home for the “Candy Shoppe” birthday party her SWEET parents hosted for her!

It’s hard to believe that it has been a year since she was born – all 3 pounds and 6 ounces of her – and how much she has grown since they brought her home and she met her cousins.  She is still so tiny (I think she is about thirteen pounds right now) and such a cutie!   Perhaps you can all say a quick little prayer for her, as she has still been undergoing lots of testing and has another operation coming up this year.  She is such a little fighter though and we are all so blessed to have her in our life!  God is good!!

The birthday party was super cute and we all had such a great time.   (I think my sister-in-law needs to come and plan my next party for me!)   My kids were practically speechless when they saw all of the SWEETS & TREATS and so thankful that we made an exception for family birthdays on this years sacrifice of giving up treats for Lent, and that tomorrow is Sunday!   (They will still probably have quite the stash to save for Easter!) Anyhow, here are some pictures from the party:

We all enjoyed watching Uncle Brian my niece open her gifts.  I just LOVE her sweet little smile!!!  My children were very excited to give her the blocks that they had picked out, and I just fell in love with the little Cloth Forest Peek-A-Book book that my Dad & Mom included with their gift.

Rose wouldn’t leave our house without her new toothbrush. . .  I guess she knew that she would be needing it after all those SWEETS & TREATS! Aunt Meagan loved the idea and asked her why she didn’t bring it up before the party so she could have added toothbrushes to the treat bags.   😉 

Happy Birthday little one!    
We love you!!

    What an adorable party theme! She is so precious! Her eyes are full of light and love in every picture. How could you look at her smile and not smile too? Looks like everyone had a great time and we will pray for wisdom and understanding for her doctors along with lots of grace and strength for her parents.

    Wonderful pictures! We always make exceptions for birthdays in our family too! Glad to know we aren't the only ones. We have so many March and April birhtdays. Mine is on Good Friday this year. Will have to celebrate later in Easter week.

    I agree with Julianna – I love seeing all the pictures and feeling like I'm right there with a big, happy CATHOLIC family.

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.
