Wednesday night: “{very} Last minute plans for a movie night with friends {who leave for vacation in the morning} on the eve of our oldest son’s 16th {!!!} birthday. I’m baking a cake to decorate for tomorrow night, but decided to quickly decorate one more for tonight as well! Let the party begin!!!”

It only took about 5 minutes to decorate! I used a star cookie cutter as a guide when placing the berries and ended up just leaving it on the cake until I replaced it with the candles just before serving.


I made the boys some “Captain America” inspired popcorn for the pre-birthday Movie Night – the boys were determined to watch both Captain America: The First Avenger and Captain America: The Winter Soldier before one of the boys needed to go home at midnight! Thankfully Captain America: Civil War hasn’t been released yet! 😉 

Twinkle Toes, who happens to be allergic to Red 40, was so happy that I made a special batch for her using Milk Chocolate Little Secrets. I discovered these last Christmas and she was so excited when she found some RED & white peppermint “M&M’s” in her stocking! I used these for his birthday cake too, which I’ll post about soon.

Captain America Chocolate Popcorn 

  • Popcorn, popped
  • Red & Blue Milk Chocolate Little Secrets (or Red, White & Blue M&M’s) 
  • Mini Marshmallows
  • Melted Chocolate

Line a cookie sheet with wax paper and cover with popcorn. Sprinkle chocolate candy and marshmallows over popcorn. Drizzle with melted chocolate. Let set until chocolate hardens. Serve.


In between the two movies the boys took a break for birthday cake! Captain was only able to blow out 15 of the candles… The kids all teased him that he had to wait until his actual birthday to be able to blow out all 16!


Thursday afternoon: Sean was able to get off work early today so that we could take the birthday boy (and Ranger) golfing! My first time… ⛳️ 😬😂😂

I had some AMAZING shots! My favorite was the one that landed over in the trees, IN A HOLE (but not the right hole) and under a stick! :/  I also managed to land behind a building and roll into the water. It was so awesome! I managed to score a 72, which isn’t really that bad, at least not when you are playing 18. We played 9. Even the squirrels were terrified. It was so much fun!

After golfing we headed back home to get ready for all the extended family who were coming over for pizza and cake. I’ll be back with the rest of the pictures soon. Happy 16th birthday, Captain!

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.
