Pictures from Easter Sunday

Easter 2014 Paschal Candle and flowers replacing the thorns

After Mass on Easter Sunday my parents and a few of my siblings (Kevin, David, Brian and his family) joined us for Easter Dinner, our annual Egg Hunt, and Chiquita’s 9th Birthday! It was such a beautiful day.

An overflowing jar of Jelly Beans (replacing the Lenten Sacrifice Beans) for all the sacrifices and acts of kindness made during Lent…A little reminder that God always gives us abundant graces and blessings – much more than we deserve!

Rose was so excited and couldn’t wait to taste a few handfuls Jelly Beans.

Twinkle Toes was so happy to see that they were all naturally colored with fruit and vegetable sources and she could have some of them this year – she is allergic to some food colorings.

Rose discovered the darling pink headband (from Sew Sweet by Shannon) in her Easter Basket.

Decorating our Easter Egg cakes with some of the Jelly Beans. My mom also made a cross shaped cake, but I skipped the lamb cake this year and made a Secret Garden birthday cake instead.

We decorated eggs, but it doesn’t look like I ever got a picture of them all completed. . .

Sorting and Trading Candy after the Easter Egg Hunt

This years menu included Ham, Sweet Rolls, Potato Salad, Fruit Salad, Glazed Carrots, Roasted Asparagus, Appetizers and Desserts. It was simple but delicious.

I’ll be back with some pictures of the children’s Easter Baskets and Chiquita’s birthday!

    "Rose's" expressions are always so cute she has such an expressive face. I can't wait to see the birthday pictures!

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.
