Lookin' Good For Jesus

Tonight was a very special night; it was Maura's First Communion celebration. We all came over to celebrate with her, and feasted on some wonderful roasted lamb, chicken skewers, brown rice with mint, wheat-berry salad, and mango and black bean salad.

But enough about the food! We had a slightly larger group than normal. This time, Katie (Maura's riding coach), Heather (Sharon's bike partner), and Sean and Jess (Sharon's brother and sister-in-law) also joined us for dinner.

There were about a thousand kids, and thankfully, they all stayed outdoors mostly.

Maura's Communion gifts were pretty hilarious, especially the "Lookin' Good For Jesus" change purse, which aptly instructs, "Show HIM the Money!" and "Be Net Worthy! Be Noticed!" with beautiful women fawning over the Lord our Savior. Very classy indeed.

Actually, the change purse was slightly classier than the lip balm, which claimed, "Restores your lips to near virginal quality." Hmm. Best to let that one stay right there.

As the night progressed, Sharon and Desi's little angel revealed her true self.
