Pictures From The Big Day


A young lady’s big day in the Basi household begins with dancing with your little brother…

…continues with joining the choir for one of your favorite songs (“Love Has Come, by Matt Maher”)…

(There’s a wonderful symmetry to having this man present to administer her first two sacraments of initiation, nine years apart.)

And of course, it’s not so hard to smile when you have cousins and grandparents to pose with…

…and when you get cards and presents and singing, it’s a good day all around. But for mommies, the most fun is seeing cousins from both sides of the family making friends. I call this cross-pollinating cousinship. They’re already plotting a pool party together this summer. To me, that spells success!

That’s First Communion Day in the Basi house! And today is Alex’s birthday. If you want to fill up the comboxes with well wishes, it will make my kids’ day. 🙂

    Congratulations, Julianna! Happy Birthday, Alex!
    Kate, I enjoy reading your reflections and hearing all about you, Christian, Julianna and the boys. It’s fun to stay in-touch with your family and you.

    Congratulation to Juliana. Hippo birdie to ewes to Alex. And real happiness about the cousins. I don’t have any, but if I did, I’d want a pool party!

    • I saw you on the other side of church…didn’t have time to find you afterward! And yes, I think that’s exactly how Alex views things. Hope you all had a peaceful and spiritually fruitful day.
