Carving our Saint-O-Lanterns ~ 2012

by | Nov 1, 2012 | Saint-O-Lanterns | 4 comments

Carving our Saint-O-Lanterns at Uncle Brian’s house this year!
I loved that we could make the mess outside this year, instead of in the dining room!  ðŸ˜‰ 
Captain choose a Celtic Cross Pattern for his Pumpkin
Rascal choose to illustrate his own Crusader Shield
The girls took a “break” and let mom finish carving their pumpkin after it was cleaned out…
Captain let mom help finish his too, this year.   There were just too many distractions (uncles) around! 
Thankfully we didn’t decide to carve one for each of our children this year! 😉

    Beautiful pumpkins! We carved our first saint-o-lanterns yesterday, and "Mom" ended up finishing most of the pictures too, lol 😉 Such a fun family time!

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.
