Stacks of Books on Epiphany

by | Apr 1, 2020 | Christmas 2019, Epiphany, Picture Books, Stacks of Books for Christmas | 45 comments

On the feast of Epiphany our children once again discovered stacks of books wrapped in gold from the three wise men!  As I was sharing this year’s Baskets of Books for Easter list I realized that I never did get around to sharing the books they received back in January. Time to fix that! 
For Captain (19) and Ranger (17)
**in addition to the stacks of books ordered and delivered directly to their college for 2nd semester**

For Twinkle Toes (16)

For Chiquita (14)

For Snuggles (12)
The World War II DK Eyewitness Book was the *only* Christmas wish he had this year after receiving the World War I version for his birthday last year! 

For Rose (10)
(Note: I purchased a couple boxed sets of the Mini Editions of Elsa Beskow books a couple years ago and have been giving the books to the children a couple at a time! The Madeline book was a follow up to her Madeline themed 10th birthday just before Christmas.) 

For Bud (8)

For Grace (2) 

.: Giveaway :. 

I have an extra calendar and an extra copy of World War II… 
I accidentally ordered World War II from both Barnes and Noble and Amazon. Whoops! 

Enter the Rafflecopter if you’re interested in them and I’ll randomly pick a name on Saturday!

Bean, and occasionally Garnet Hill. Sometimes Old Navy too.

    Several of my kids have become WW2 nerds!!! They can't seem to read enough about it, which is great since we live in Evansville, IN which was the heartbeat of WW2 production. Home of the LST's and the P47 Thunderbolt!!! I would love the calendar. We have been doing so much art and I seem to pull towards the folkart lately.

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.
