A Blessed Evening!

The day finally came for Sarah's first communion! The beautiful dress she has been longing to wear can now be worn! Today she will have the Body and Blood of our Blessed Saviour! It is a very special day!

She had a good day (PTL) but was so excited and a little nervous for 5:00 church and for her first communion.

Sarah is our 6th child that has had first communion. They did it differently this year and it was wonderful. Much more of a family and spiritual event that a large group event. They planned it over 2 weekends and we could pick the service our family wanted to attend. We love Saturday night church and we knew it would be easier for the big kids, so it was perfect!

I am sorry I did not get a picture of the rest of the family that attended the special occasion. Matt, Katie, Billy, Johnny and Auntie Barbie attended.

God Bless You sweet daughter!

Our good friend Karen came to see Sarah! She is such a blessing to us!!

Sarah and Father Tim

Or two oldest daughters ;-)

I am one thankful Momma!

Yes... we have issues with these chocolate cakes. We love them! We find reasons to buy them! By the way, when is your birthday? Maybe we will have to have a chocolate cake in honor of you!

I really can't get over how grown up Sarah looks since you first got her. She is so beautiful!!! Love her dress and think you should bring some of that cake to China for us to share!!!

I am feeling soooo behind in my blogging! Sorry I'm just now making it to your neck of the woods! :)

Sarah is stunningly beautiful. What a special day that she will always remember. The chocolate cake looks fabulous! And how generous of you to offer to eat some in honor of each of our birthdays! You are such a dear friend. LOL!
