Happy Easter from Our Family to Yours!

by | Apr 21, 2014 | Easter, Pictures | 9 comments

I have so many pictures I’d love to share from our Easter/Birthday celebration yesterday! It is going to have to wait for now, since I filled up the external hard-drive (again!) and it’s going to take a little time to sort through folders and and delete duplicates to make some more room… In the meantime I was able to upload the family picture we somehow managed to take, in between Easter Sunday Mass and the party we hosted, with the help of the self-timer on the camera and one of the steps on the swing set!

Today we will be attending Mass at noon, the baptism of a sweet baby girl, the reception following, and then coming home to have dinner (it’s going in the crock-pot now) with some dear friends (our oldest daughter’s godparents and their children!) who have been in town visiting their family for Easter!  It is going to be another fun and very full day! Happy Easter!!!

He is Risen Indeed! Alleluia!

    Happy Easter to you and your family Jessica! What a great picture! Thanks to you, I have the lamb mold which I got a couple years ago. It is a lovely addition to the Easter feast! I also made a similar glaze to the apricot one you posted…however I used mango, passionfruit and pineaple! Yum! Looking forward to seeing photos from your Easter!

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.
