March for Life Photos

This past weekend our family participated in our annual March for Life.

After Mass, we had lunch and said the rosary at the home of some friends, and then headed downtown for the March. The weather forecast said it would be snowing... But, instead, we were blessed with a BEAUTIFUL day!

Upon arriving, I was disappointed to find the flashcard of my camera full, and for some reason, it wasn't even letting me delete any pictures... I love pictures, and camera problems TOTALLY frustrate me... So, much to my dismay, I wasn't able to take any pictures.

However, a friend of ours was there videoing, and since we stand out with five little ones he happened to get a few shots of our family, he was able to email me a few still clips of the video!! Yeah!!

In fact, I am actually shocked that he already emailed these to me!!! I figured--when he mentioned last night, that he was going to--that I would receive them in a couple years, give or take, considering we are still waiting for the video of Chiquita's baptism, which was almost 3 years ago... But, to my astonishment, unlike the baptism video, they were in my inbox this morning!! I have been told, that things get better with time? So I expect Chiquita's baptism video will be pretty awesome by the time we actually get it. (hint...hint) Right?!?

I'm just giving you a hard time, Marc. Seriously, THANK YOU so much, for the pictures! Now, all my dear blog friends can see them!

(Chiquita is showing off the doll puppets on her favorite mittens)

Following the March, there was an awesome rally. Here are some photos of Snuggles during that rally... (Its always nice to find out you were unknowingly being filmed... Isn't it!? Looks like Snuggles didn't mind.)

Snuggles does look so snugable and lovable though, doesn't he? Just looking at him is such a wonderful testimony for LIFE! Babies are SUCH a BLESSING!

"Lo, sons are a heritage from the Lord, the fruit of the womb a reward. Like arrows in the hand of a warrior are the sons of one's youth. Happy is the man who has his quiver full of them!"

Psalm 127:3-5


  1. Aloha Jessica. I love your blog too. I added your blog to my side bar a few days ago.
    I'll be back!
    BTW, these are wonderful photos.

  2. Ouch! A public blog bashing. By the way I don't think "videoing" is a real word :)

    Remember, like fine wine....

  3. Hi jessica, could you please send me the pictures of snuggles.

  4. Great pictures.
    there was quite a turnout for the rally too
    God bless you all for being there.
    God provided good weather, too.

  5. Yes, the pictures are great aren't they?! The credit all goes to Marc! He did a great job!

    And Marc, I'm not "blog bashing!" I'm just teasing. And, it looks like your right... I can't find the word "videoing" anywhere. I don't think snugable is a word either. But they both should be, IMHO!

  6. It's ok Jessica, I deserve it. Just don't ask how long I take on some of my friend's wedding videos.

    By the way if anyone wants to see more stills from the march (74 total) you can view them at JCRTL

  7. That is so awesome!
    You know, I have always wanted to take part, but I was always worried with little ones. But if you guys did it, than we should be able too!
    Thank you for posting this!

    Also, snuggable is in the mommy dictionary, I am sure.

  8. Haha...Snuggles looks cute! (All you guys do!)I love all his different facial expressions! :p

  9. Amy, you SHOULD!! If Sean and I can do it with 5 kids, 7 and under, ANYONE can!! Right?!?

    Thanks JoAnn!
