My Parents visit and our marriage is blessed...

My parents flew in last Tuesday from Maine to spend a week with us. Natalia was very excited to have her Mimi & Papa here and kept them busy playing and such! My Dad's 60th birthday was Friday so we took him out to dinner, along with my Aunt Jo-his sister. We left Natalia with a babysitter-it was sooooo nice to have a nice dinner with adults-I even induldged myself with an adult beverage-yum!!

Yesterday-Monday April 16th, 2007-Todd and I had our marriage blessed by the Catholic Church (also known as Convalidation). This was such a huge deal for me and something that I've been praying for-for a long time! Fr. Kelly performed the brief (Natalia wouldn't have been able to handle much longer) but wonderfully perfect ceremony in the chapel, at St. Gabriel the Archangel Catholic Church in McKinney, Tx. I feel so blessed the my parents were able to be here as witnesses. Now I feel that after 7 1/2 years my marriage is finally complete and I can be fully active in my faith-Praise God!!!

After watching Natalia's dance class today my parents headed to the airport for their return flight to Maine. Natalia was very sad but we'll be visiting them this July which will be lots of fun!
