First Holy Communion

Last night we celebrated David's First Holy Communion! Such a special day for our biggest little man, and for our family.  This year his faith formation class at church has been focused on preparation for first communion, and we've done a fair bit of reading and study on it at home as well.

It was a wonderful mass, and although it was extra long (we had 55 children receiving communion - what a blessing!), all three kids were very well behaved. They earned those post-church chocolate cupcakes, that's for sure! We were joined by family and friends to share the evening with us.

David looked amazing, if I do say so myself. He looked so grown up and sweet in his suit. I admit, I got a little teary as he stepped forward to receive communion for the first time. He is such a wonderful little soul, and he was so excited. It is a lovely milestone, to begin receiving this Sacrament. My heart was full.
