Sophia’s Special Day

Sophia had her 1st communion this past Sunday. We were fortunate to share the day with both sets of Sophia’s grandparents, an aunt, an uncle and cousins.

We went back to our house for lunch after the service.

Sophia helped to make the fancy cookies.

The Dress

 

Because it was so cold and windy on 1st communion day, I made her put the dress on again for some outdoor photos the next day.

She got a little bored with the serious photos, so she decided to do her own thing.

What?

 

By this point it was obviously time to be done with photos, but I did snap one more after the veil was off and we were inside.

We are grateful that we had our family here to join us for this memorable event. Sophia received wonderful gifts that she will always cherish. Beautiful necklaces, a personalized bible, a cool book to guide her in her faith and a very special gift from her Grandma – a sterling silver rosary that she purchased over 60 years ago and wanted to pass on to her granddaughter. It was a very special day indeed.
