First Holy Communion

Last Saturday, April 21st, our sweet Sophia celebrated her First Holy Communion.  

God was certainly looking down on her....and gave us a beautiful sunny day!   I tried to get lots of pictures in her sweet little gown.  

A big thank you to Yiayia for finding a marvelous woman who lovingly made this dress just for Sophia.  

I wasn't really sure that I wanted her to wear a veil....(seems more like wedding attire to me), but we ended up with a very simple one...adorned with some sweet little flowers.

I envisioned lots of yellow for this celebration...and I love how the flowers turned out.

Here is one of the sweet little bracelets she received.

Isn't she so darling?  She is such a pretty little lady...and what a special gift she is to us.    She was so excited to put her hair in pink rollers the night before.  That hair of hers....gorgeous.simply angelic.

Cookies from her "cookie mama" of course...:)

She asked for a lemon flavored cake.....and she got four layers of it!!!

Some of the girls from Sophia's class...and her teacher, Mrs. Vaughan.

Love her excitement in this picture!

Those blue eyes....so sweet.  And look at all of those cute second grade teeth!

After the ceremony in the courtyard with her teacher.

Such a sweet picture with her Thea...who she has adored since day one:)

My baby.....my first miracle....

Yiayia...who helped design the dress....and helped me get everything ready for her big day.  Don't know what I would do without my mama:)

I think she got those pretty baby blues from her Pappou:)  What a great picture of the two of them.

A few of her friends who she has had class with for a few years:)

Omi and Papa:)

She was so excited to have the priests bless her rosary that I gave her for First Reconciliation...but she panicked as we were leaving home because she could not find it.... She had her bracelet blessed instead...and we later found her rosary at home after all!

Fr. Bill on the left and Fr. Mike on the right.

So sweet.

Our morning ended with a celebration with our family at our house for a light little lunch and perfect company.  I am so proud of this little girl.  It's her birthday week...and birthdays always make me a little weepy.... My soon to be 8-year old....where did the time go?
