We weren't allowed to take pictures during the ceremony but I will have professional photographs soon. I can't wait to see how they turned out.
There were 108 2nd graders receiving first communion and our church was packed - standing room only!
As Peter was processing into the church, he turned and looked over at us and smiled and waved. I wish I had a video to capture that moment. He looked so grown up and yet so small all at the same time.
The service was beautiful. The choir sounded wonderful. The homily was perfect. And the kids looked so angelic as they were receiving Jesus for the first time!
After Mass we all went to a local restaurant for lunch and then heading back to my mom's house for dessert and presents.
Here are a few of the pictures.
