We had a little party this afternoon for Lucas and Monica to celebrate Lucas's First Communion and Monica's upcoming Confirmation. It was fun to share the fun with another side of our family that we don't get to see too often. Auntie Angie, Gary, and Mom enjoyed cake, ice cream, and lots and lots of happy noise! Dad was taking a nap....a much needed nap after all the noise from lunch after Mass. Poor Clyde, Auntie Angie's dog, was hiding under the table from the kids....I think he was a tad bit overwhelmed. Jane and Nick managed too ease him out of there to pester him a bit more, though!
Meanwhile, this is what's going on back at home....poor Minnesota!
