First Communion

Jesus said to them, "I am the bread of life; whoever comes to me will never hunger, and whoever believes in me will never thirst-John 6:35

Brice made his First Communion last Saturday evening.  He has worked hard and sometimes reluctantly :) on his lessons with me.  I am proud of him in so many ways and this is no different.  Jesus asked at the Last Supper to "do this in memory of me" meaning take and eat the bread and wine and by doing that we are not only honoring him but accepting that we are taking in the body and blood of Christ and through that action, He then lives in us.  It is then our responsibility to do as He would do, pray as He would pray, and of course the greatest, love as He would love.  And, isn't this what we want most for our children? 

We had special guests here on Friday night and Saturday to help celebrate... Jonathan and Mollie!!!

We missed Aunt Blaire and Uncle Josh but they were busy with their little mister!  Nana and Pa and Grandma and Grandad came to help celebrate and everything went well.  It was a fun weekend!

 Had to include this one since it was Mother's Day weekend.

 Father Juan and the kiddos.
 Mollie and Jonathan with the kids right before they left to go see Blaire, Josh and Christian.  They had a busy weekend!
Thanks to all the family for either traveling or coming to celebrate this special time for Brice.
