Keira's First Communion / Easter 2015

It was an absolutely perfect day. The Joy of Easter combined with the Joy of seeing my oldest receive her First Communion. A very special day. All these pictures from church were taken by our talented friend Cesar.



















 After Mass we had a big brunch at our house with tons of egg casseroles, fruit and homemade cinnamon rolls. Mikes mom organized an egg hunt outside for  the kids.

Its slowly getting warmer out........


First day of Spring

 Keira was supposed to wear "spring" clothes too school for the first day of Spring. So she wore a sundress with winter clothes under it.
Every am at school Keira writes me a love note on the back of her morning work.

Samuel's Dump Truck Birthday and Nairi's Hello Kitty Birthday.

 Samuel is 2!!! He wanted a dump truck birthday so thats what he got. This is the same cake Mike made for Israel when he turned 2.
 Dump Truck dirt cake
 Nairi is turning 4 and she wanted a Hello Kitty birthday. Their birthdays are 8 days apart.  

 The theme was a combo of Hello Kitty and trucks


 2 year olds are fun to watch when they open presents






Keira's First Confession

Waiting in line for her first confession at Ste Marie's. She was nervous but still smiling. Afterwards she literally skipped all the way to the front of the church with a huge smile on her face ( the confessionals are in the back). Next up is First Communion on Easter!
