Therese's First Holy Communion!

Sorry I've been slacking on posting this, but here it is!

What a wonderful day! I just love First Communions; I feel such joy for my children receiving!

Therese with Fr. N

Love the family shot! - slight sarcasm - You can see what a psycho the 3yo is from this shot. I mean, just look at his face! Like he has to let everyone know that he's the crazy nut case of the clan - I mean that in the most loving way :0) The almost 5yo didn't want to even be in the picture, so I had to scoop him up real quick. Drives Paul crazy --- that boy not wanting to have his picture taken formally or semi-formally.

He'll do this:

But not this:I just take it with a grain of salt. One thing I've learned is that you can't force someone to be happy - especially a 4yo boy who is adament not to get his picture taken [can you see his clenched fists?]. So I just have to cling to that saying that gets me through life: This too Shall Pass! He'll get over it. . . . . someday :0)

We had some friends and family over for a fun day back at our home. Therese had a blast!

It was truly a blessed day!

Congratulations to Therese! What a beautiful first communicant she was! And congratulations to all of you. I'm glad you all had a great day.

Oh, she looks just gorgeous Shelly! [And I like the family pic just fine - I find that those are the portraits I like the most as I get older because they remind me of the funny/annoying things my kids did - that weren't funny at the time! LOL!]

Congratulations to Therese. Her dress is very beautiful.

I love the family photo even with the cheeky and shy guys.
