checklist

Done:

Dress for First Holy Communion made by Grandma
New shoes ordered from Zappos have arrived and they fit
Veil made by Mommy
Sheer white stockings purchased
Felt banner made by Big Girl (each 2nd grader made one; they will hang on the pews)
Khaki slacks purchased for The Boy
Navy blazer and light green tie borrowed for The Boy
The Boy's white button-down shirt ironed
Gifts and card purchased (Illustrated Bible and Rosary Bracelet)
Friends reminded about date and time



To Do:

Wash the girls' nice white sweaters (halfway done)
Sheer white stockings are the wrong size, need to exchange
Make reservations for celebratory lunch
New dress shoes for The Boy (just added to To-Do List; Daddy's request. Mommy thinks navy tennies are fine for three-year-old.)
Make salad for the Preparation Dinner potluck (Dinner is Thursday night; 2nd graders and their parents only)
Trim the girls' bangs
Paint Middle Girl's toes (she is going to wear flip-flop type shoes)
Wrap gifts, write in the card
Pack extra batteries in the camera case
What will Mommy wear?


Big Girl receives her First Holy Communion this Saturday morning. This will be my first time seeing this ceremony and I really have no idea what it will be like. Saying that she is excited about it is an enormous understatement. It is all anyone talks about around here! She is very involved in all of our preparations and wants everything to be perfect.

I think I am really going to learn something this weekend. I don't know what it will be, but I am intrigued!
