Ice Skating and Pizza on the 6th Day of Christmas

by | Dec 31, 2013 | Christmas 2013, Ice Skating, My Siblings | 3 comments

Thank you Grandpa and Grandma M. for all the new hats and mittens! 
The older boys took turns helping Snuggles skate. 

Uncles are the best. . . 
. . . even when they are “it!” 
It was a good thing that the kids worked up an appetite ice skating… The pizza shop isn’t kidding when it calls this pizza “Colossal” size!  Thankfully my brothers helped!
At 2 1/2 feet in diameter, the colossal pizza was the equivalent of over 3 family sized pizzas!  They usually charge $43 for the colossal pepperoni pizza, but I had a $10 certificate, so I thought $33 to feed 12 people (with a box of pizza leftover!) was a bargain!  Bonus: The pizza parlor is celebrating their birthday this week and they just called this morning to let us know we won the $25 gift certificate from yesterday’s drawing!

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.
