Just a few pictures!

 Michaela made her first Confession and her First Communion this weekend and I couldn't resist putting up a few pictures! The first picture is from Saturday when the kids went to Confession and the rest are from Sunday. We weren't allowed to take pictures at Mass except during the procession so we have very few from inside the church. In the last photo the children had just crowned the Blessed Virgin Mary. It was a great weekend!

  7. Hi Mary. Michaela is so beautiful! I bet you cried with joy. Is that your husband in one of the photos? I was interested to see what the boys were wearing. Here, in Australia, the boys don't wear a white vestment or gown. Instead they dress in their best clothes complete with white shirt and tie. I guess that is what the boys in your photos are wearing underneath their white garments. Different traditions for different places, no doubt. Now I am wondering where you live! God bless.

  10. Hi Sue! Yes, that's my husband - I laughed because their half-smiles were exactly the same in this picture. My husband looks pretty good for a man in his forties I think! Why is it that men age so well? Not fair! Lol!

    I live in the Northeast US. It's such a tiny state that I call it Cow Hampshire :)

    I don't know why the boys have to wear robes. I go to a very traditional Church, maybe that has something to do with it. God bless!

  13. JBR,
    I've been reading your posts and can see that your stress has increased a lot since the move. I really hope things at work settle down a bit, I've been worried about you. I know, I know, I shouldn't be worried about someone I've never met in person but as I always tell you - I've got a soft spot for you ;) Hugs!!

  23. Hi Mary, your husband does look good! But then so do you. The only time I remember the boys wearing robes for a First Holy Communion was in a very modernist parish! (All the girls wore them too. Sad they didn't get to wear a beautiful dress.)So different from your experience! Definitely different traditions for different places. BTW, we are a traditional parish too. God bless

  24. Thank you, Diana! The little kids always wish they could receive Communion too. I've seen some tots stick out there tongues or hands when they go up to Communion with mom. I even saw a baby do this once - it was so cute. At least they get a blessing!

  25. Sarah,
    And congratulations to your daughter on her recent Confirmation! I am still awestruck at that restaurant you all went to! I never saw anything like it!

  26. Thanks Sue! I'm surprised that the girls didn't get to wear real Communion dresses - they must have been disappointed! My daughter LOVES dressing up! I guess it's as you say, just different traditions in different areas.

    Hope your new cat is making friends with the others ;)
