… if any of you can guess the inspiration for Rose’s birthday cake?  

I thought it turned out cute, but I pretty much had to explain it to everyone that came to her birthday party!  🙂 
I’ll be back with more pictures soon… We had so much fun!

    Is the inspiration from the first snowfall of the year coming on her birthday?

    Great guess!! But, nope… I was pretty excited when the weather decided to cooperate with my theme though! 😉

    It made me think of the Sound of Music! (I know it will not be it, but gosh how I enjoyed that show as a child!)

    Woo hoo!!! So glad that someone was able to figure it out!!! 🙂

    I am almost done uploading the rest of the pictures from her "Favorite Things: Sound of Music" birthday party!! I'm so excited to share them with you all.

    Well, I was completely clueless until I read the comment above. lol 🙂
    I'm struck by your beautiful design and work, though. You are getting to be SO stinkin' good at this! Really, most folks would pay good money for a cake like that I'm sure. Happiest birthday wishes to your sweet little girl.

    Okay, before I read all of the comments my first inkling was Sound of Music (really!)..but then I didn't get how the snowflakes fit in. But wow, this is AWESOME all around and now I will have that song in my head as I go to bed..and that is a GOOD thing!!!

    Happy Birthday Rose!!!!

    Thanks! I've had it stuck in my head for DAYS! And a few minutes ago I could hear my husband singing it in the kitchen! lol

    Well, I saw your other post so I know the answer but my first thought had been something to do with snow in the Alps, but it didn't make sense. And then The Sound of Music popped into my head, but that's as far as I got. The cake is so pretty. I am sure Rose just loved having her birthday.

    Rose's "cream colored pony" earlier gave it away… besides, like Rose, the Sound of Music was MY movie growing up… along with Mary Poppins. Hey – that would make an awesome birthday theme party, too, wouldn't it?

  15. Jessica Gordon

    I thought I had given enough hints! 🙂 Mary Poppins… that would be fun!

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.

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.
