Ballerina Rosie will be making her First Holy Communion this coming weekend! She's been asking and asking to "practice" with Neccos. (I always think of my good friend Sarah's mother when I think of these candies, she is the one who told me about them long ago.) We will practice because we all receive Communion on our tongues (she doesn't have to do like us, but I'm sure she will), so we will practice how to do this. We will also practice receiving in the hands, because the Church does allow this.
Socks purchased and ready to go!
(along with the dress and shoes!)
This book read together. (I cried in the end, it was so beautiful)
This is Margaret's novena we started on Friday, it is truly getting her ready heart and soul.
Our white theme, white cake ordered (Sam's Club), white balloons, plates, streamers, tablecloths.
I'm planning the menu, she wants turkey with mashed potatoes and gravy, I'll add some other whites....cauliflower with dip (one of my favorites!), white buns, I'm planning on making either the First Communion cookies or cupcakes (I'll do muffins for breakfast) pictured on Catholic Icing
We've practiced the hair style (she's been planning this for a year now!)
Now, all I need to do is pray, clean, shop, clean....clean, clean.....
It's weird, these special, holy days, (like Baptisms) I get this need to clean and have the house, I don't know, ready for such holiness....
I ask for your prayers for my sweet little Ballerina Rosie.
St Catherine, pray for her.
St Therese pray for her.
