YaYa's First Communion: The After Mass Pictures
YaYa didn't much care for the picture phase of the morning, preferring to get right to the party. It was just about the only thing that didn't go her way the whole day. Here she is with us:
With my parents
With Great Aunt Mabel
With Chris and her family
With her Godfather
With Lisa's Mom and Stepfather
With my sister K
And sister C
With the one and only LuLu
With her Sunday school teacher:
With the candle we'd made in the prepatory class
And finally a pair with Father Spitz
During the photos with the priest LuLu came up and tried to get my attention. When she failed she slugged me in the leg.
"Don't hit your father" said Fr. Spitz.
She cocked her head. "He's my Dad, so uh, yeah I can!"
Nice to know I'm raising them right, huh?
Anyhow, one last note before we move on to the party. After the photos Father Spitz and I got to talking about the Swine Flu. His opinion was that it was ridiculous, even if he did go down the safe and sure route with the communion wine.
"One death out of 300 million people? You'd have worse luck walking across the street." he said.
The next day the state ordered the church and its school closed due to the Swine Flu, one of more than twenty closed in the area. It reopened, without incident, later in the week.
