Well, since I am such a diligent blogger, I totally forgot to post photos from Andrew's First Holy Communion.
We celebrated with a lovely Mass on Saturday, May 4th. The Mass was wonderful and our new Pastor, Father Jim, did such a wonderful job with the homily. Just wonderful.
Of course, I boo hooed all the way up to Communion as I walked behind him. Thankfully, our other priest, who knows me pretty well, saw and I know he understood. It is such an awesome amazing moment. Tears are totally appropriate!
What a handsome Communicant! We love you Andrew!
The whole family in front of our beautiful altar.

Jacob, Andrew, and Michael - handsome boys. Jacob got to serve at the Mass.
A little dessert reception after the Mass.
Each of the children receive a real grown up Bible and case for their First Holy Communion. What a treasure. At some point during the BBQ that followed we couldn't find Andrew. He was inside reading his Bible and underlining passages. Precious!
