On St. Patrick’s Day

by | Mar 22, 2011 | St. Patrick's Day | 4 comments

I did say that it might be awhile before I was back to post pictures, but I really didn’t think it would take until Monday early Tuesday morning!  It’s been just a little bit busy around here.  🙂

Since I am still up, waiting to change over the laundry, I thought I would upload a few pictures starting with Rose picking out the marshmallows from her first bowl of Lucky Charms – a breakfast “family tradition” that my children insist on each year for St. Patrick’s Day!

My boy’s really enjoyed making Shamrock Cinnamon Rolls to go along with our breakfast…
…and while I was busy preparing our Irish Beef and Guinness Stew for dinner, the boys did a great job putting together our Irish Flag Veggie Tray.  

For lunch we had Shamrock Toasties Pizzas. . . 
. . . and then the kids all worked on some coloring pages of the Life of St. Patrick while we waited for their friends to arrive.   

We were so excited that Erica and her family were able to spend a couple nights at our home, and that we were then able to join them for an overnight trip to the coast.  What a blessing to be able to spend sometime with their family before they leave this week to move Down By the River. . . or somewhere like that.  😉  What an adventure they have ahead of them!   Thanks to one last change of plans, I picked up the three oldest treekids late this evening last night to spend the night one last time before they fly out on Wednesday morning.  My children are going to be so excited when they wake up and find their friends here in the morning!

    She is SO cute! I could just eat her up! We had Lucky Charms for Breakfast (and Snack) as well. I don't know what it is about that cereal but my kids LOVE it!

    We do Lucky Charms every year, too. I wonder if I can remember your shamrock pizzas for next year – great idea!

    RATS! We could have done Lucky Charms in the moving mess! That would have been soooooo easy – and they don't have cashews! Thanks bundle for taking the big kids last night… I wish I could be there for the excitement this morning!

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.
