Almost Showtime

First Communion

And after the ceremony, praying to Mary.

And a picture of the two kiddos at the church after mass.

Who would have ever thought that Katie would finally be old enough to receive her first communion? Not me!
Even that morning I still couldn't believe it. It seemed a little surreal. But it was a beautiful mass, with many of the kids I taught in CCE, as well as our good friends sitting right in front of us. It made the whole event even more special, that we were able to share it with both sets of grandparents, Uncle Doug, and many friends.
Katie looked beautiful and was very excited! And without any hesitation she knew exactly what she was doing. And I couldn't have been more excited for her!

And From Some Time Ago

Best of Friends

This weekend

After our usual 9:30 mass we came home to a lovely Spring day. Sitting on our covered porch, there was a beautiful breeze blowing, and it was a perfect day to spend some time outdoors. So we grabbed some books, and plopped down outside to enjoy the fresh air.

Nicholas quickly began hunting geckos. His new favorite pasttime. I hate to tell him that using his methods and catching container of choice, it's never gonna happen. But it did keep him busy for several hours.

We also got the entertainment (although fairly disgusting) of watching Mr. Green Gecko peel off his old skin and.....EAT IT! ICK!

Easter pics

After a 1:00 A.M. wake-up call that the Easter bunny had come, and after shooing two little children back to bed until about 6:30, these happy faces were greeting us after mass.

And then later that afternoon we found this on the floor...And even better is the position his little legs were in...

Carrie's quilt

I knew there was a reason I haven't been blogging in a long time. Blogger has changed their picture loading and placement abilities and I can't figure it out!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Anyway, here is my beloved pink and brown quilt that I made for a dear friend's new baby girl.

I am very tempted to take it back every time I see it.
And on the back is this beautiful floral designed minkee type fabric. It is oh so soft!
