Somebody’s Seven

Any guesses on the party theme she choose?  

Happy Birthday Chiquita! 

* Our birthday celebration started a little late this afternoon, since we ended up spending yet another morning at doctor’s offices – both our pediatrician’s, followed by a trip to see an ophthalmologist… Our little Bud managed to poke himself in the eye, with his sharp little fingernail, last night.  Thankfully a week of antibiotic eye drops, three times a day, should be all he will need.  My poor baby!  I’ll be back to post more pictures of our birthday girl, but right now I’m headed back to the party!

    Yep! She had originally wanted a "Little House on the Prairie" birthday, but as soon as the girl's started studying the Early 19th Century (with the help of Kirsten) she slightly changed her mind! So, a (simple) Kirsten Prairie Party it is! 🙂

    She is beautiful! Happy Birthday! +JMJ+

    Kirsten was my American Girl when I was little so she still happens to be my favorite 😉 Happy, Happy Birthday Chiquita!!

    My Branch and Blossom have talked about the birthday ALL day long. Everything is "well, we have to do … on "chiquita's" birthday. It is today. you know!"… Miss you all and Happy Happy Happy Birthday to you! 7 is the best, yes?

    Many blessings for a happy birthday for your sweet daughter! My guess was going to be Little House.

    Can't wait to see the details of the party!! (you are the best party maker!)

    Can't wait for details! You really are the best party planner. We did the monkey/zoo theme you did for Snuggles and my little man LOVED that party so much. He still talked about that party two years later, he was only three at the time. I love 7, such a fun age!

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.
