Melody's First Holy Communion

This weekend, Melody was privileged enough to receive our Lord in the Sacrament of the Eucharist for the first time.  It was such a beautiful night and was extra special since both sets of grandparents, her Godparents, all her cousins, all her aunts and all but one uncle were there to celebrate with her.  What a blessing it is to live so close to family and to have them so active in our lives!!

Come, Lord Jesus!  

Lamb of God, you take away the sins of the world, 
have mercy on us. 
Lamb of God, you take away the sins of the world, 
have mercy on us. 
Lamb of God, you take away the sins of the world, 
grant us peace.

Let the celebration begin!!!  We had a lovely get-together with grandparents, aunts and uncles, and of course, LOTS of cousins to play with.  Here are pictures from our celebration at home....

A day trip to the water park

In continuing our celebration of Christmas and since Neil has a lengthy Christmas vacation, we took a day trip to Fun City, a water park that is close to us (about an hour and a half away).  It's always fun to splash around and get wet, especially when it's with cousins (unless you are Pookey who couldn't stand the cold water!)...

Thank you God for fun, family trips like this!!
