First Communion Mass

Several pictures from Carter's big day at church....

With friends before the ceremony.

Preparation in the church basement. Look at those girls' dresses! Little brides! I remember dressing up and wearing a veil....but guess they've become more elaborate since then. The sweetest thing was seeing a girl in a white dress and then a yellowing veil.....because you could tell she was wearing her mom's.

Blake took the kids outside mid-mass because they were getting antsy. One day, we're going to be able to sit through an entire church service. I just know it.

Deacon Bill and Carter.

Inside the church.



First Communion banners.....you can see Carter's mid-picture.....BCS.



Pictures outside afterwards.

What a blessing for this experience. Not only is Carter handsome, but he's got a pretty good-lookin grandfather!

Is it wrong to be jealous of your gorgeous family? I think so.
