Happy May Day/ First Holy Communion

Happy May Day!

What a beautiful day we are experiencing (weather-wise) here in Kansas City.

The weather was even better over the weekend, when our sweet daughter celebrated her First Holy Communion. What an incredible day it was!!!

In addition to all the sacramental excitement, over the weekend, I got a new iMac.  (I *heart* my hubby!) I am slowly getting all of my pictures transferred over as well as any important word docs that I think I might need in the future.

I leave you with just a few pics of Mary Catherine.  I will be back with a lot more pictures of our day to share with our out-of-town family and friends.  While we wish we could have all been together to celebrate this blessed day, we know that you were with us in prayer and thoughts!



  1. Was waiting for some pictures of her special day, Val...and wasn't she an angel?? Just beautiful...can't wait to hear and see more! Happy Wednesday, friend...

  2. You did pick the perfect dress- Mary Catherine looks like an absolute angel. So glad to hear the day went well. We celebrated my youngest son's First Communion this past weekend also and it was wonderful to see how genuinely excited he was about receiving Jesus.

    What a blessing our children are and sharing our faith with them is the greatest gift, isn't it?

    Blessings to you all! :)

  3. Her dress is awesome, she looks gorgeous! And I like your paint color :-)

  4. Pretty, pretty, pretty! Mary Catherine is just lovely in her dress and veil! I've no doubt you couldn't stop beaming in joy as your daughter made this most important sacrament. God bless!

  5. Beautiful! The dress is gorgeous. Mary Catherine looked perfect. Thank you for sharing the photos!

  7. Oh, Valerie! She looks so pretty on her special day! You can see how excited she is :) Her dress and veil were beautiful to say the least. Isn't it an exciting time for these little ones?? (and for the parents as well.) Congratulations on her special day!

  8. Beautiful!! I love how little girls let you (me) take a ton of pictures!!!


Thank you so much for taking the time to comment. Your kind words are appreciated! As Mother Teresa said, "Let us always meet each other with smile, for the smile is the beginning of love."
