W's First Holy Communion was on Saturday! He looked gorgeous in his suit. The ceremony was nice and they set it up so the parents sat in the rows behind all the children and got to go up and receive with them. The extended families and friends sat behind us. The kids had songs to sing and prayers to say. We took a lot of pictures inside and outside of the church, a few with the Monsignor, and some with the family. A girl in his class wouldn't leave without getting pictures with W. I think she has a bit of a crush on him - W ate it up, lol.
After picking up a few more things for his party and J's friend, Samantha, we headed out to my mom's to celebrate. Rain was in the forecast from Friday to Sunday nonstop, but my mom said all she had to do was put a Blessed Mother statue in the front and back windows (facing outward) and it wouldn't rain. And would you believe we had the most gorgeous sunny day?! About 30 people were there. We had lots of food and cake and we hung out til almost midnight. The kids ran around playing manhunt and roasting marshmallows over the fire pit. W changed out of his suit as soon as he could, lol. It was a great party!
