The Big Day

Another milestone was reached today when Nicholas received his first communion. I must confess, it brought tears to my eyes. His out-of-the-norm quiet voice reading from the altar, his baby soft hands  motioning as he sang Taste and See, and his animated face tasting the wafer and wine for the first time were sentimental moments never to be forgotten.

It seems like every time I turn around, we are back to this day. Every other year for the past six, one of the kids has partaken in this joyous event. The pictures below show each child's special day, starting with Katie, then Andrew and finally Nicholas. My how they have grown!
