Weekend Photos in Review {Madeline’s First Communion}

by Cate on May 1, 2016

Madeline celebrated her First Communion this weekend, and we celebrated right along with her. It was truly a whirlwind few days, starting with their Communion rehearsal on Thursday night, a sleepover with one of her BFFs on Friday, and all the last minute details on Saturday. It was like prepping for a wedding all over again!

As I finally crashed last night, I realized there were a few pictures I missed getting, but before I got caught up in that disappointment, I refocused. She had a beautiful day and was with the most important people in her life. I couldn’t ask for anything more.

The day (and the decisions leading up to it) were very much all her. She chose the dress, the shoes, the headpiece, and even did her own hair. She wanted a red and white theme for her party, and our Rainbow Cake for dessert.

The day was truly all about her, and I wouldn’t want it any other way.

She is just too lovely and cute and looks like she is about to bust with confidence and joy! I’m sure it was a fun and meaningful day for your whole family. Her dress is so pretty and those little kitten heels, LOVE!! Cannot believe how these 2 beautiful kids have grown!!! Maddie wasn’t even born and Nick was wee when I started following your blog!! (Haven’t commented in a good while but visit every few days to check on the kidlinks and see what new deliciousness you gift us with–Joanie from the old CLBB)
