On Sunday, we celebrated Cupcake's first birthday and Bigboy's First Holy Communion. He received this wonderful sacrament from the hands of the priest who baptized him and for whom he is named. It was a very exciting (and emotional) day (for Mommy).
Here they are, 8 years ago, at Bigboy's Baptism and then after Mass on Sunday.
Why do kids grow so fast?
Our two celebrants!
Those eyes... they melt me!
Green or brown? We still aren't sure which way her eyes are going to go.
Cake inspired by Jessica's daughters' cake. He wanted blue roses in honor of Our Lady.
We had our in town family over to the house for a luncheon of BBQ pork sandwiches, PB&Js for the littles, potato salad, fruit slaw and cake.
I made a backdrop for the cake table using a piece of muslin I had in my stash and some pretty scrapbook paper.
The party was primarily celebrating Bigboy's First Holy Communion but I did set out Cupcake's little cake so that her special day wasn't forgotten.
We also made cupcake pops for the cousins to take home as a little treat.
She changed out her the lovely dress that Baby Matthew's mommy made for her and ...
into the party dress her dear Godparents sent.
And then later on, after a much needed nap when the party was over, she changed out of everything but a diaper and a bib and enjoyed her teeny tiny birthday cake with a teeny tiny cupcake on top. Jessica found this idea and pinned it on Pinterest. It's an upside down mini Reese's Peanut Butter Cup frosted to look like a cupcake. A sweet tribute to our teeny tiny little Cupcake girl!
