This past Saturday Madeline received her First Holy Communion, and it was a beautiful celebration! Both of Madeline's grandparents and her Godfather flew in for the special occasion.
Along with Madeline, all of my other students from this year also made their First Holy Communion.
Don't they all look so pretty and handsome!?
We had many family and friends attend, which made it that much more special for Madeline. Here she is with our Oom Folly (my mom's brother) and Tante Patty. They drove out from Houston with Tante Xenia and Oom George (pictured below). So happy they all made it out!
My friend from high school, Erica, who just moved out here to Austin from CA came with her family. Along with several of our neighbors and friends from around town (unfortunately I didn't get pics of everyone). We appreciate them all making it out!
And here's our baby girl, back home after Mass at Church.
I told everyone to bring their kids swimsuits. So they could jump on the trampoline and run through the sprinklers in our backyard. Here are Madeline and Sara.
It was a fun after party with yummy food and good company!
Thanks to all who came and who sent something special to Madeline for this wonderful celebration. She truly felt all of your love and prayers!
