~ Front Cover ~ 
For the cover the girls each choose an image from the American Girl Website’s Wallpaper selections, cropping and pasting it to the front of their covers.  They then cut out the year “1774” with the help of our Cricut to add to the front cover as well.

Baked Pumpkin Pudding ~
“Felicity used her best pumpkin to make this tasty pudding.”

~ Queen Cakes ~
“Queen cakes were a favorite of the Queen of England.  Felicity liked them, too, because they were made with sweet currants, which are like raisins.”

The girls have moved on and are now studying the American Revolution with the boys, in addition to working on a Josefina Unit Study/Lap Book.

    I am loving all your posts. Especially the birthday party. Happy Birthday to your son and kudos to you for a very very cool birthday party for him.

    I LOVED the cake!

    Hi Jessica,
    This is great! Looking forward to using your ideas next year. Do you think the Portraits of American Girlhood book is worth the money? Just wanted your opinion. Wish I could preview it. Thanks again!
    God bless,

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.
