SweetCheeks First Communion-Family Photos Today


Our little SWEET CHEEKS made her
FIRST COMMUNION
yesterday.
Look at the gloves!
They are heavily beaded  white gloves that 
belonged to her
GREAT GREAT GRANDMOTHER HAZEL.
She was a tiny little woman and the gloves
 are in perfect shape.
Our girl looked so sweet..
Here is the oldest, Lulu, 
with the littlest, Bright Eyes,
on their way into the service.

Little cousin CJK thought the whole thing was
A SCREAM!
A bit later---
He was trying to pry the gum out of Mom's mouth.
LOOK CLOSE!
We have a 
PHOTO BOMBER 
in the background!
I have never seen a baby that loves a camera
like Bright Eyes does.
Mama's Boy got the gold ring so he got to hold
Baby Bright Eyes.
Not a peep out of her during a one hour church service.
We are all SO SAD that NO ONE in the family
LIKES HER!

MyHero says these things just
WEAR HIM OUT!
Pardon my absence.
I am going to get a mirror to hold under his nose
to make sure he is still breathing.
Be back later!

ps.  I am not trying to be secretive.
I do have something special to share and thought
it would be okay to share it by today.
I have to wait a couple of days yet
so please bear with me.
I don't like doing this and I should have waited
to say anything before I had a GO.
Y'all can slap me when you see me!

  13. Good Morning Diana, Sweet Cheeks looked so pretty for her first communion. I can remember when my kids did that. Brings back a lot of memories. They are just growing up so very fast much to fast. We want to keep them babies that we can cuddle as long as possible. I have enjoyed catching up with you since you got back. Storms and flooding around us. I have a pond in my back yard where there is a low spot. My brother wants to stock it with fish. Have a wonderful day. Hugs and Prayers from your Missouri Friend Shirley

  16. Sweet Cheeks is growing up, a teeny, tiny bit. :-) Which is natural of course. I see her changing a bit. I know! Don't say that, to a Nana!!!!!!

    Oh that Baby Bright Eyes!!! What's to say? She is a charmer. :-))))))

    Yes, we will "lash you with a wet noodle" if you don't "spill the beans" soon! -sigh-moan-sob-whine-cough-whimper-sigh. >,-)))))))))

  21. Oh my gosh, I had to look at these sweet pictures again. Sweet Cheeks looks beautiful. I have a hard time thinking of her being serious. Love the gloves. So wonderful that your family came to support her. I bet your little heart was full of joy. Now that baby in that long dress, wow, she is adorable beyond words. Photo bomb something else.

  30. Diana, you have such a lovely family. Such beautiful children and so well behaved! Tears rolled down my face when I saw Sweet Cheeks' First Communion photos and especially the one where her eyes are closed and she looks like she is in deep communion with our Lord. Tears again when I saw the photo with Bright Eyes in her lovely floor length dress and walking so sedately along her big sister. I look forward to your surprise and my imagination has already started working over time! Chuckling here!

  35. Diana, this is truly special. And what a sweet and beautiful dress SweetCheeks is wearing. I still remember my communion well. My dress was plain, but very pretty. Lulu and Bright Eyes look darling, the oldest and youngest. What a wonderful day, indeed.

    Thank you for the birthday e-card. I love it with the red roses. It was just right. We just got back from So Cal and I'm tuckered out.

    love you, Diana.

  37. The angelic looks of these photos just take my breath away.
    Your girls are beautiful....and what a blessing to have your daughter take her first communion. Priceless moments for you.
    I love the white gloves....beaded....and more precious than any you could purchase as they belong to Grandmother.
    I remember wearing white gloves when we got "dressed up" for a special occasion. (Am I dating myself?)
    Thank you for sharing this day with us.....and....ssssh. Don't wake him. He looks too comfy.
    Looking forward to your news.
    Love,
    Jackie

  42. Hi Diana! Oh how I love a pretty first communion dress. I remember my own (from back in the stone age) and I still love my daughter's dress from 1998, lol. Sweet Cheeks looks like. A little Angel and the veil is perfect. Then, I have to say, the gloves made me all misty...what a precious accessory. Traci wore gloves for hers as well (she was the only one), but your family heirloom is so special. Those brands are growing quick - love seeing the pictures. With so many girls to keep up with, I can see why your hero is pooped! Jane

  45. Congrats to pretty SC on her first communion. She looks so adorable in her pretty dress. Do you know I still have mine from the 60's. My mother saved it in her cedar chest and I never knew this till going through the chest after she passed away. Bright Eyes is so precious!!
    Lovely family time and looks like your hero is wore out!!
    Hugs, CM

  46. Diana,
    I am again so very late... Your photos totally warmed my heart and SweetCheeks will one day be a beautiful bride. Yes, I am Catholic but I have always seen the white dress and blue suits are a far in the future photoshoot of a fairytale wedding. Yes indeed I know the significance of first communion but I adore the regilious meaning and the precious outfits of the day. The gloves from Hazel are absolutely beautiful, little photo bomber will have her day! So glad you're back Diana.
    xoxo,
    Vera

  60. Those are just adorable pictures. I'm loving the gloves. I have a pair of my mothers. A short but funny story. We are Baptist and our church doesn't observe First Communion as your's does, so when our youngest daughter at age 7 (she's now 44),,,came running into the house screaming....Momma, Lupe's (age 7 ~ Jill's best friend) getting married....... I looked outside and across the street they were all dressed up for Lupe's first communion.....Yes, she did look like a little bride.

    You are so funny, I know the hero is alive cause my Hubby looks the same way when he is just getting a long spring nap...
    Love you, Roxy
