we traveled up to allentown for a mid-week vacation to attend colin’s confirmation mass last week. according to official estimates, 149 teens were confirmed that day, including colin. but we lost count after 20. seriously. that was a lot of kids!
we were so happy to be there, though, and so proud to witness colin’s official entry into the catholic faith. welcome, colin edward francis!
jackson even made friends with the bishop. at the reception afterward, jackson kept waving at him, and so he came over and shook his hand. he even offered his hat (mitre?) for jackson to touch! nana was so proud — will jackson be a bishop one day??
after the mass, jill, the wonderful hostess, created a beautiful table, with lovely food, drinks and dessert. the chocolate cake was enjoyed by all, especially jackson!
we were so glad to be a part of the celebration.
