A Special Occasion

A really special occasion means
sleeping with sponge rollers!

The "morning after" the sponge rollers!

Maddy made her confirmation last month.  It was such a special occasion. 
 All of the 5th graders worked so hard throughout the year
preparing for the sacrament of Confirmation. 
 Maddy's chosen saint was Saint Elizabeth Seton -- the patron saint of Catholic education. 
 My confirmation saint was also Saint Elizabeth.

Philip and Maddy

Her big brother, Philip, was her sponsor.
  Philip and Catherine came from Omaha to attend her confirmation
 and Connor was also a part of the festivities. 
We had a small gathering at our house afterwards as
 confirmation was on a school night. 
We are so blessed to have such a sweet and loving family.

Congrats Maddy! If I remember correctly, that saint is who I picked when I became a catholic.

P.S. We love sponge rollers at our house for special occasions too!
