Making Chocolate Nests for Easter

by | Apr 27, 2011 | Easter, Kids in the Kitchen | 1 comment

On Holy Saturday the girls really enjoyed making Chocolate Nests, like they had done last year
Easter was SO close, and the excitement was building quickly! 

Uh oh!  “Don’t touch!! It’s not Easter yet!”

Oooh! Snuggles snuck a stray Chow Mein noodle. . . 

… and was a little too happy to “Hold the Spoon” for a minute!

Just look at him licking his little lips, while looking at that spoon covered in chocolate!  Way too tempting… The torture! 

The girls had so much fun working in the kitchen…

… and they didn’t mind having a “helper!”

After we finished making the Chocolate Nests, we went on to make a new variation of Bird’s Nest Cookies.   I posted the recipe, and even more pictures, over at Catholic Cuisine

    Snuggles is just too funny! oh those faces….
    My 3 1/2 yo boy makes that exact same face with the tongue (the one with Snuggles holding the spoon.)
    Wishing you a Blessed Easter Season!

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.
