I promise that this will be my last post about our trip to Arizona.  ðŸ™‚

One day, the girls and I were able to go to the Church and help the Catholic Daughters prepare for a take-out dinner fundraiser. 
 The girls did a great job bagging up all the rolls!

The boys enjoyed spending time visiting with Grandpa in his garden…

…and Snuggles loved pulling the little toys all over the yard!

I always love seeing all the old pictures of Hubby, when we visit his parents.

We took these pictures one day, on our way out to a local lake.   Apparently there had just been a Border Patrol shooting…

Oh how I wish we lived closer and could visit more often!

On our last day, the girls and I took their Grandma shopping and then she treated us to dinner.  It was such a fun day!
I just love this picture of Chiquita with her Grandmother/Godmother!

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.
