Chicken Nuggets Shaped Like US Presidents

We don't "do" chicken nuggets, but today at lunch, Gwen said that she felt that if there was going to be chicken nuggets in weird shapes, that they should be in the shape of US Presidents.  I have to admit, it's a fun idea.  I can see kids around a school lunch table talking about Abraham Lincoln, George Washington, or even James Madison.  Heck, it's a way to bring back some of the lesser known presidents.  Way to go, Gwen.  Forward thinking!

Gwennie Girl's First Holy Communion Pictures

Gwen's Communion was special.  I love our new church and our priests are wonderful!

Here are a few of the photographs I took on her special day.  I can't believe my little girl has received third sacrament.

All these photos were taken with natural light and a 5-in-1 reflector with the gold side.

Gwen's 1st Holy Communion

Today is Gwen's First Holy Communion and I'm super excited.  We chose this mass so that I can leave for work in the morning and still have my full week of teaching in Eau Claire too.

So here's the game plan:  Party in our teeeny-tiiiiiiny apartment with our families, then go and show them our 27 days from completion home, then go over and take pictures of Gwen at the church.  Mass is at 5:00.  Group Pictures after Church and then our families will take off for their homes.

Crazy?  Yes, but we can do it!  Life will get easier.  I keep reminding myself.  I won't have to cram a party into 450 square feet soon and then phew!

Pictures of Gwen will surely follow.
