Playdates, Parties, & Holy Communion

Well, we had the pleasure of having Lily Grace for a couple of hours recently while her mom ran errands! The girls just had such a great time as usual. Snacks, of course, we had by all!
The little "Jesse Cookies" we had made for Jesse's Party that he passed out to his friends after the party was over!

Jesse's candle was a sparkler that was an "8" shape and caused quite the smoke problem. Well, we learned not to do sparklers inside anymore!


Jesse and his fellow PRE Communicants after their 1st Communion. Jesse was the 2nd one and just did a spendid jpb. We are so proud of Jesse and the wonderful young man he is becoming!



Jesse processing in at the beginning of Mass...how handsome!

NYC Weekend and Happy 8th Birthday Jesse!!!!

Lance & I went to NYC for a conference and turned it into a long weekend. We promised Jesse we'd put some photos on here...especially of the dinosaur fossils! We had a blast and just shoved as much as we could into 3 1/2 days! We'd love to go back with Jesse & Claire sometime!

The obligatory Times Square photo op.....

Claire eating some of Jesse's Birthday cake...yum!!!


Look who's 8! He picked his own flavor of cake this year...with some specific instructions! I'm glad we all happen to love strawberries!
