Our First "First"

Because it seemed like a good idea at the time (because we could combine parties) we chose the Sunday after G's first birthday for #1's First Communion. The weekend was a whirlwind but, in the end, I'm glad we did it that way.

I'm not quite sure if this is liturgically appropriate but they enjoyed their "special breakfast" and ate enough to get them through the long Mass. Of course, it was served with grape juice ;0)

I was thankful that it was held during the 11 AM Mass. Even though the two tiny ones were due for a nap, it was less hectic trying to get everyone ready in their Sunday best.

Our beautiful girl. She chose the headpiece and we gave her the St. Cecilia stone charm for her special day.

She's overshadowed by the Grace of God ;0)

Goodness, aren't they cute!
We actually arrived early so we had time for some more shots

One with her good buddy
Then we had 30 min before it started so we just sat for a while
It was a long Mass...this is after, looking a little worse-for-wear (and no, I'm not pregnant..I just gain 10 lbs every time my mil hits town ;0) )

The best friends


Uncle D!
MIB ;0)
We ended the afternoon with a loooong brunch that encompassed family and some wonderful "adopted" family from our church. We are so blessed to have had so many people share in the great joy of the day!
