IN GOD'S EYES & More 1st Communion Pictures

I didn't have all
my pictures together
on my first post.
My daughter emailed
me a few more..
so here they are..
Warning- lots of pictures here
and some came through 
a bit fuzzy.

Here is Ria being walked
into church by her
handsome Daddy.
And here she is with
her sweet little friend, Livvy.
And her other sweet little classmate
This is the priest,
Father Dave,
one of the funniest men
I know.

He came to Ria's house
for the party and told
me that when I was
young and a hottie
he was young and studly.
I found that funny...
what do you mean
I USED TO BE
a hottie?;>)

After the ceremony
we arrived to find the
house all decorated
just for Ria.
The mantle was cleared
so her banner could be
the highlight of that area.
There were pom-poms
And more pom-poms
And a chandy with fru-fru
Seen here up close
There were wonderful
little florals set all around.
And presents for her
special day including
a beautiful Bible from
Mom and Dad.
And..she...being the
sweet little girl she is
had a big kiss for her
Cousin CharlesInCharge
(that's his Daddy in the background)
And, of course,
no party would be complete
without at least one
picture of SCheeks.
This is taken with her
babysitter, Miss N.
When we were sitting at
the table eating someone
passed the comment that
MissN and SweetCheeks
looked like sisters.

Wehll, we ARHE sistahs!
We arhe ALL sistahs
and brouthers in
God's eyes!
Even Papa is my brouther,
and my cousins are my brouthers, too,
and effven my friends are my 
brouthers!
Being one that likes to egg her
on just to see what she will say
I voiced the opinion that if 
ALL boys are her brothers
then what will happen
If you marry someone will
HE be your brother, too?

With much disgust in her
voice she said..
It dussen't worhk
THAT WAY, NANA!

That's good, cuz I'd hate
to think I married
MY brother!
yeah....just sayin.....

    You are so bad egging on poor little Sweet Cheeks, hah hah. She is so funny that girl. I bet you were just like that growing up when you used to be a Hottie......and you still are. Can't believe that came fro the priest.
    Have a great day today.

  12. What a wonderful day Ria will always remember! Beautiful decorations! I also thought that SweetCheeks and MissN looked sort of alike.Anyways, Diana, you hottie, right from a priest's mouth) you do seem to enjoy egging SweetCheeks. Oh, well, grandmothers love doing that, I know. Just keep on enjoying her. Why not! They grow up so fast. Sigh!
