First Holy Communion

On a windy Saturday afternoon, two precious children of God
 prepared to receive their First Holy Communion.

Beautiful twin sisters... Candace Selam and Sarah Fikir.

The whole family was there to celebrate...

...even Grandma Miles came from Indiana!

Mommy and Daddy are very happy and proud.

Mass began with a procession of 
First Communicants into the church.

Sarah and Candace were so excited!

Receiving the holy sacrament.

Receiving blessed scapulars.

 Happy girls!

Happy birthday, Anna

Saturday, Anna came back from college to attend prom with her good friend Scott.
He was crowned prom king.  :)

On Sunday, the cute little baby pictured above...

...celebrated her 19th birthday a day early.  
Today is the real deal.  Happy birthday, sweet and funny Anna.  
We love you so much.

A spring evening

Spring is starting to show around here... finally... and although the clouds were out, the warm temperatures lured the kids back outside after dinner this evening for the first time in awhile.

Sarah swinging... I love to watch little kids swing.
  They just radiate joy.

It was a nice evening for doggies, too.
