Isaiah, our oldest son, received his First Holy Communion today! What a blessed and love-filled day. It was so fun to witness Isaiah bubbling with so much joy and peace. One of my favorite moments was when we were praying a decade of the rosary in our car on the way to Church and Isaiah said: "When I woke up today the first thing I did was pray a decade and dedicate this day to Mary!"

One of my favorite pictures, because (like always) eyes are always on Hope! 

Uncle Mark
Grammy and Jaja.
It must be noted that my parents have been helping us move for over a week now and somehow my mom managed to host Isaiah's First Communion party AND to cook all of the delicious food for the brunch. Yes, that means that once again I did nothing but show up for the party! Someday I want to be like her, but for now I will just keep being spoiled by her love and care for me and my family. 
Uncle Michael, Aunt Emily, and Baby Max!
Isaac took over with the camara...
... And Isaac somehow captured Isaiah receiving the body of Christ! 
Isaiah was able to share his special day with two of his best friends from Villa Madonna, Landon and Olivia. 
We are so thankful to call the Parson family friends! They have all been such a huge Blessing to us as we have transitioned into our life here in Tampa. ** 2 of their kiddos are missing from this pic, probably running around outside with my kids. ;)
The Gleason's came to love on Isaiah today too!! For a present on his special day they gave Isaiah a water proof watch, which I have a feeling he will never take off again. What a great family they are and a continued blessing to us for many, many years. 

Johnny and Isaiah.

Grammy and Isaiah at his party! She always makes him feel so loved!

Isaiah, we love you so much and are so proud of you for saying yes to Jesus and allowing Him to come into your heart at such a young age. You are such an important part of our family and it is an honor to be your mom! Happy First Communion day, sweet boy. 


  1. This has to be the sweetest post ever. I was moved to tears it made me so happy! What a beautiful day for your beautiful family. Isaiah looked like he was on cloud nine. So special! I'll have to forward this on to my mom!
    Love you all!

  2. How amazing of your son to pray the rosary and dedicate his day to Mary!
