May Crowning

Oh yeah I haven't been lying that it's once thing after another around here. Today at church, they had all the kids who received Communion come back dressed in their finery to participate in the "May Crowning". It was nice seeing the kids all together dressed up (although not all the kids showed up--apparently is wasn't mandatory)
Here they are walking into the church. Sorta looks like multiple wedding couples...
After the Mass, the kids went outside with the priest to crown Mary, & lay flowers on the statue after a short prayer. It wasn't as nice outside as it was the day of her communion, it was actually windy & pretty cold but it was sunny & thankfully didn't rain. There's Marissa's veil flying up. And no I did not do her hair all done up again....she fought me on it but there just wasn't any time. I think it looks nice down as a contrast to her dress.

Here's the group of them with Father Pat. Don't they all look sweet??This is Marissa's friend from her 2nd grade class. They weren't in CCD together or receive communion together so they were happy to be with each other today....& compare dresses. Her friend was the one who actually crowned Mary (they drew names from a hat).Afterwards we went home, got changed & got ready for round 2...Marissa's birthday party!
