Thankful Thursday - Communion Recap

OK, better late than never...

So, as most of you know, last Saturday my little man R made his First Holy Communion. In spite of some heavy rain, we really did have a wonderful day...

and since it's Thursday, I am SO THANKFUL that it all turned out beautifully!!!

The mass went off without a hitch, the kids all sang and did great! The boys all looked SO dapper in their suits and the girls SO beautiful in their mini-wedding gowns. They really were a sight to see!

One of the highlights of the day for me was when we ran into a face from our past. The daughter of one of my mom's closest friends, who we haven't seen in about 15 years, recognized my sister in church and came up to us after mass. It was a sure sign for me that my mom was there with us as R received this holy sacrament, and brought tears to my eyes. Michele & my dad were crying as well - what a bunch of hot messes!!!

We had a little snafu with the cake, they left the n off of communion... That was a little embarrassing :/
I'm also missing a few pics because my sis apparently doesn't know how to work a digital camera!

womp womp...

... But other than that, is was a great day. I feel very blessed that both of R's families were able to come together in spite of everything to celebrate this special moment in his life. I only almost lost it on one of them once the whole day!

The big guy was definitely watching over us ;)

Hope you enjoy these pics from his blessed day...
