Army of Mom

So this is how liberty dies ... with thunderous applause.



I am way behind on posting pictures for everyone. Last month, Hot Rod had his first communion. It was a very sweet mass and the kids all looked so handsome and pretty.
Our very patient priest was really good to pose for all these pictures after mass. No photos during mass, so I guess he figured it was a concession to all the moms and dads. However, there was no order or system in place, so guess who (yeah, you guessed it) stepped up and instilled a system. It was frustrating, so I just took over and created a line. We never did get a group picture because that one was way out of my control with all the parents grouped up too close to get them lined up for a group shot.

Hot Rod's godparents.

And mom and dad with the boy. It was a nice ceremony although I really need to NOT buy new shoes to wear for occasions like this. I had giant blisters on my toes by the time we got to picture time. He bore it well, but Army of Dad was suffering from some serious allergies this evening. Bless his heart. He was a trooper, though.
They look so happy to have just sat through a whole mass. I thought Pickle looked especially cool in his outfit. Look how proud Hot Rod looks. Little Bit is just happy to be in her "pretty white dress" with a bow in her hair.
It was nice to have AoD's dad there as well as my parents. Afterward, we had the family and godparents over for dinner.

    Adorable! At first I looked at the photo of the God Parents and thought "Gosh, she looks different without her glasses!" LOL

    This is Texas! Our church is usually not very well air conditioned to boot.

    I might put one on for a funeral, but not for First Communion.
