And Grammy was here for his special day!
The pastor of our parish allows homeschoolers to have private First Holy Communions if they so desire. I appreciate that! It allowed us to work around Grammy's travel plans.
We had a dinner party for him later in the day.
The dessert table ::
Layered chocolate cake with cookies and cream filling and butter cream frosting. (www.sweetartbakery.com)
Vanilla cupcakes with butter cream frosting. (www.sweetartbakery.)
Brownie bites with cream cheese frosting. (Miss Sally)
And since July 6 was also the feast of St. Maria Goretti, (my Confirmation saint), Miss Ester made chocolate crosses with lilies.
St. Maria Goretti is usually depicted with lilies, a sign of purity, and since little man had just gone to confession and received his FHC, we thought the white crosses with lilies were a perfect addition!
