The first few pics are of Autumn's First Communion. Somehow the camera settings were wrong and we only got a few clear and usable prints. So, here she is.
I made the veil, which promptly came apart during Mass!! I had to rig it before she went up to receive. In the following pictures, which were before Mass, it looks like it was meant to look.We tied her hair in rags the night before for the curls. She looked adorable.
She was so excited to finally be receiving Jesus. Since then, she has been much more excited about going to Mass.
The cake she picked out. It was actually really pretty and looked like a real stained glass window.
Okay, so the following pics are of Andrew getting his car (our graduation present to him). He had NO IDEA we were going to do anything like this AT ALL! The first pic is of Andy's hand pointing out the door, at the car, while he is looking at Robert, who is inside with him, as he says, "That's for me?"
Then the look of shock, awe, surprise, and love!
A very happy and excited Andrew!
Loving his new (and his very own) ride!
Thanks Mom and Dad!
This is so awesome!
Yup! Stewie (his Drum kit) will fit!
Pics below are from our visit to Stone Mountain Park (about 40 minutes from our house).
Andrew sitting on top of Stone Mountain, no doubt listening to Radiohead's In Rainbows. The kid is just gorgeous!
Robert and Andrew found a shirt, at one of the gift shops at Stone Mountain, which reminds us all of just who the coolest of them all is. (The shirt was made to look as if the message was written on the shirt in ripped masking tape...oh so classy!)
Ben, me, and Autumn staring intently at something on top of Stone Mountain (Georgia). Autumn's shirt says
Mary is My Homegirl. A gift from my IRL pal, Kathleen.
