YaYa's First Communion: The After Mass Pictures

Photobucket

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:

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.

Swine flu much on the increase over here especially up in Scotland for some reason...glad I don't live up there now !! However because of the tormoil we are in over the Government we are not hearing so much about it.

What a big day...great photos, she'll be so happy later on that she took those few minutes to snap those pictures.

That second photo of you and Lisa with YaYa deserves a frame, it's a great pic..you two look so proud and loving.

Congratulations YaYa :) You looked beautiful!
