Blake's Holy Communion and Confirmation Celebration!


We had a celebratory lunch at the Olive Garden after Blake's ceremony. Our guests were Mary and Todd Defilippis, Kim and Mike Collins, my sister Andrea and Jeff, my parents, Gary's Mom Yvonne, Giordano Family (Bill, Dana, Brady & Breana), and Krista and Chase Rockwell. We had a delicious lunch followed by a yummy chocolate cake. It was a wonderful cap to an amazing day! Two more years til the next one!

Blake's Holy Communion and Confirmation

Yesterday we celebrated Blake's Holy Communion and Confirmation. He chose St. Michael the Archangel as his Saint. It was a beautiful ceremony. Blake's Godparents, Kim and Mike Collins came from Colorado and Mike was his sponsor. Grandma Yvonne also came from Colorado. We were all so proud of Blake. He was nervous and very excited. Congratulations and God Bless Blake!

Evan was a boll weevil in his first grade play "Bugz!" He had several speaking parts and they sang a lot of songs. It was a fabulous production and all the kids were great. Grandma and I made his costume. Boll weevils are nasty little bugs that eat cotton and destroy cotton crops. His music teacher suggested we take a brown tshirt and cover it with cotton balls. We also made him a hat too. After the concert he complained how the cotton balls made him itch!

Little bike rider

Gary installed the bike seat on my bike and took Kendall for a ride. She didn't like it. Now she loves it. We have fun on our family bike rides!
