Joseph's First Holy Communion

Well, Joe made his First Holy Communion and I am thrilled. He looked so very handsome. It was a beautiful ceremony and thank God I wore waterproof mascara. I wasn't the only mother crying either by the way. He looked so grown up walking down the isle and he had the biggest smile on his face. We were not allowed to take pictures during the ceremony which was to bad because he did look so handsome and it is a special day and it would have been nice to have. We went to the Church at 10am so that we could take pictures before it got really crowed. At 10:30am they were lined up and at exactly 11am it started. I liked the way they did things. Anthony and I sat in the pew with Joseph between us and my family that came had their own pew. We actually went to the altar with Joseph and had to introduce him to the priest and watch up him take his First Communion. It was really neat. I saw my mother out of the corner of my eye staying off to the side watching Joseph take his First Communion. When Joseph saw her he gave her the biggest smile. When we got back to the pew he looked at me and said " it taste like foam" "So I asked him how he knew what foam taste liked" He had no answer for that. It was to funny. The party was really nice too. Anthony worked on our backyard for 3 weeks to get it in shape and we had a tent and table and chairs and he planted all these flowers and it looked great, but it was really cold out so not that many people sat out there. We had a little over 60 people here and everyone had a great time.

My mother cooked her butt off for this because Joseph didn't want it catered. He loves my mothers cooking. My poor mother was wiped out. On top of that my brother called from Iraq to congratulate Joseph (he's Joes Godfather) and to wish my mother a Happy Mothers day (this is the first one in 45 years that he wasn't with her) and she was crying and I think after that she was in a fog. But all in all, it was a really nice day.

A friend of mine owns a party entertainment co. and I had one of those big bouncy things that had a rock climbing wall and a slide. The kids had a great time in that thing. I went in it also. I don't think it's made for people over 40. I got super dizzy and when I went to slide down the slide, I don't know what I did, but I went down head first and tumbled over like an ass. When I got out of the thing, my legs were like jello. I had to sit for a half hour after that. I am just way to old for this stuff. LilyRose got in for a little while with all the other babies we had here. It was really cute. Thank god we video taped it all. My daughter ate all day long. Anyone she saw that had food, she was on them like jelly on peanut butter.

I'm glad it's done. It was a lot of fun, but very stressful. It started to pour right after the last guest left. God was good to us today. I hope you enjoy the pictures.

So much to tell

So LilyRose turns 20 months old today. She is getting so big, and the bigger she gets the bigger her attitude gets!!! She has some attitude already. They were not kidding when they told us that the Hunan girls were "Spicy Girls" she is wild. But we love her to death and wouldn't change a thing. My mother tells me that she is a mini me. No problem!!! She talks up a storm and laughs all day long. It's amazing that she is here and she's all mine. LilyRose is a momma's girl all the way. Thank You God .

Joseph made the All Star Team. We got the call tonight. So, out of something like 50 or 60 boys that tried out, Joseph was 1 of 12 that made the team. He was so excited he almost fell down the stairs when he went to tell my mother that he made it. He is officially a "Bulldog All Star Baseball Player". I am so proud. Woo Hoo!!!!!!!! He can't wait for my brother to call tomorrow from Iraq so that he can tell him that he made it.

My niece Angelina made her First Holy Communion last Saturday and she looked beautiful. LilyRose had a great time at this party. She danced, she ate and she sang and she ate, and ate and ate. I don't know where she puts it but God Bless her. She has an awesome appetite. Joseph also had a great time. There were a lot of kids at the party and some were his age. The DJ was pretty good and Joseph danced. WOW, my son danced and in front of people to boot. I wish he would take Hip Hop classes. I think he's a pretty good dancer.

I want to wish April and Sean a safe and wonderful trip to bring their son Aiden home. They are finally leaving on May 18th and we couldn't be happier for them. This is such an exciting time and we wish you all the best of luck. We love you guys. Can't wait to see the very first pictures of you and Aiden together.
