Little G had her first Communion on Saturday April 25th. I shall begin by saying that in the chaos of it all, I arrived at the church with both batteries in my camera DEAD and NO card in the camera - talk about loser mom! And I call myself a professional photographer - ha! Anyway, I had to rely on everyone else's point and shoots at the church to capture the moments that I would otherwise have missed all together. So, thank you to you dear friends!!
The first picture below is of 2 of the PRE classes that were participating in that mass (we belong to a huge parish, so there were 3 masses just for First Communions that day!) Anyway, Little G is front row, far right side, beside the lady in the blue jacket - and of course she's the cutest!! Father Christopher - 2nd row on the right (he's kinda obvious) presided over this mass. WE have 4 priest in our parish, 3 full time and one part time with us and part time with the diocese. Anyway, Father Christopher presided over Little S's First Communion last year too.
Some pix of Little G processing in at the beginning of mass. She didn't want to wear a veil, but she found a beautiful, delicate little tiara that she wore - of course she wore it like a headband, but what can I say, she has her own fashion sense!
It was a beautiful mass. Little G was a little nervous - afraid that she might forget what to do - and she did! It was really cute! Father Weldon was who we received our host from and he even cracked a little smile when she got flustered! How can you not find Little G just darling?
Some family pix. The sun was so bright behind us that this little point and shoot couldn't compensate. Anyway, the first one is our little family: me and hubby, Big S, Little G and
Little S. Not a bad looking family.
This is my Dad on the left and my Mom on the right - of course me, hubby and Little G in the middle!! Not looking too shabby!
These are a couple of the pix from the actual First Communion at our church. I will post some more of the festivities afterwards at another time!!
