A first communion

Today 7 year old Alex made his first communion. 


All eight of the kids had duties to perform during mass.  Here is our little man taking up the collection. 

After church we had a luncheon at the new neighbor's house.  Alex's mom, has 11 siblings. Most of them came with their spouse, their kids, and even some grand kids.  It was a big party!



Later in the day, it was gift opening time.  Alex was pretty pleased with the gift that Grandpa made for him.  He told us, "Now I have something to hang on those nails in our room".


Here's  close ups of the cross.
