Our Family’s First 1st Holy Communion

You’ll have to forgive me, but I am exhausted and simply cannot put into words what Smarty Pants’ First Holy Communion was like.  Suffice it to say, the Presence of the Lord was near that day and I still feel and see the graces, especially in our first-born son.  Enjoy the pics!
