Are silver shoes (for DD, not me!) a massive no...

...and what is your DD wearing in her hair/on her head?

DD1 made hers a few weeks ago, it poured own all day hmm she was stunning, there was 19 who made it. She loved all the attention. Only down side was I invited too many children to the afters in our house they wrecked the place hmm.

It was sunny in the corpus christi procession though

I was wondering where this thread had gotten to!

I'm glad it went so well Lynette, sounds like a really lovely day. And a hummer is always good for some added entertainment wink

Dd had another go in the dress for the corpus Christi procession on Sunday and it was a gloriously sunny day so we got some lovely pics.

Dd insisted on ordering the DVD, no sign of it appearing yet though, they break for summer in two weeks so it would want to come soon hmm

LynetteScavo we did that smile Bucketed down on the day of dds. But they all wore them again on Sunday for Corpus Christi and the weather was lovely, so parked dd1 out the back and took loads of photos.

We get our DVD next week I think. The PTA do it and then the proceeds go to the school.

Glad it all went well smile

Oh yes you must! I keep forgetting to go to the photographers to look through (and order) the official ones.

Must say, it's been the one and only time when I have been amazed and thrilled at Italian organisation precision. Clockwork. Everything, perfect. Why don't they let priests and catechist ladies run the country I ask myself......grin

LynetteScavo Wed 05-Jun-13 22:13:19

We don't get a DVD anymore. sad

I found the DVD of DS1's FHC the other day...it was soooo sweet! (And his cheeks were so chubby! grin)

No official photos either. I think I may have to put DD back in her dress, and do her hair, and get her to pose a bit next time the sun comes out, so we have a nice photo to frame.

TheBirdsFellDownToDingADong Wed 05-Jun-13 20:25:00

I'm still here! In fact, was going to bump this thread to see how everyone's went!

Lovely Lynette, glad it went well! I took 150 pics and we have to go to the photographer this week to order the official churchy ones. The dvd we get in September.

LynetteScavo Wed 05-Jun-13 20:17:51

In case anyone is still here...just wanted to say it was the most beautiful perfect day, ever. smile

There were six DC, all girls, who DD knew from school, which made it special for her.

Afterwards there was a white stretch Hummer outside for one of the girls. grin

DH earnestly tried telling DD (and me hmm) the girl needed such a large car, because she had such a large family.

I only wish I'd taken more photos.

TheBirdsFellDownToDingADong Mon 20-May-13 14:07:38

It's me! NotTreading, still wearing my Eurovision name!

All done and dusted and out the other end unscathed....

I cried more than anyone in the place

wigglesrock Mon 20-May-13 08:37:47

Think there may have been a few that did theirs on Saturday!

Hope everyone had a great time. Dd1s went really well, even though the rain bucketed :-). She was lovely, they all were, I cried but not as much as my Mum smile

LynetteScavo Mon 13-May-13 18:28:11

that's £5

LynetteScavo Mon 13-May-13 18:27:48

Probably no one needs them now...but Tesco are selling white shoes (which stay on!) for 5....I only know about them because I stopped a random child and asked them where they got their shoes. grin

I popped to Tesco after school with DD and got her some...which means I won't have to faff about trying to tie the H&M ones onto DDs feet.

(I still want these but can't justify it for one hours wear, when no one will really notice)

wigglesrock Sun 05-May-13 21:31:36

FairheadedandFrustrated congratulation to your son. All the boys in my dds class are wearing converse, dd is jealous smile

My dd is fine in slip ons, she has a few dozen pairs from H&M
Sorry not much help!

LynetteScavo Sun 05-May-13 19:19:45

Congratulations to your DS Fairhaired!

Re the H&M shoes - I mangaged to buy a pair yesterday....did any of you need to put elastic on them? DD can't walk in slip-ons, os I'm going to have to put elastic/ribbon on them...just wondering about the best way to do it.

Who knew white shoes could be so difficult?

Thank you! We were out this morning too, only 3 others from his class were there though, all in their wee rigouts from yesterday too smile

I just wore my jeans wink

Congrats to your ds fairhaired grin

Was at mass with dd this morning and she and the other communion kids were grinning at each other like loons going up to receive grin was lovely to see

Just beautiful!

My ds made his yesterday. He had a lovely wee suit, a purple shirt & tie & a pair of purple converse (the trousers covered a good bit of these though!)

We'd everyone back here & he had ice-cream cake! We made pasta salad, rice, potato salad, chicken, cooked ham, lasagne, breads, cheeses etc and goujons/ sausages/garlic bread for the kids.

Bouncy castle in our yard and for the hard core ones, toasties @ 11pm last night!!!

Irish so no wine except for mil wink

Lovely photos, SummerRainIsADistantMemory! smile

Glad it all went well.

wigglesrock Mon 29-Apr-13 18:57:41

Beautiful photos, beautiful beautiful dd. You all look lovely.

Ps If anyone is looking I got a plain white cardigan for dd1 (I have 3 dds, I have to do this 3 times grin) in M&S today. Its completely plain, none of this strange inside out seams that seems to be all the rage.

Thank you both smile

Your DD looks beautiful Summer as do the rest of you. smile

NotTreadingGrapes Mon 29-Apr-13 15:03:10

Oh, lovely Summer! Dd looks so sophisticated and proud! smile

My dd's frockery arrived today, and it all fits perfectly. My own white skinnies arrived however and are so thin and hideous you would see my pants! So off to Boden I go (where I should have gone in the first place tbh) and whack the see through ones on ebay!

Pics up smile

Glad it all went well :-) Will be thinking of you this week, hope funeral goes as well as it can.

Let us know when you post a pic, I'm not even going to hide my nosinessgrin

Thanks wiggles, don't worry... I recognised you from the other thread too smile

Ntg, thank you too. It was a lovely day despite the circumstances. Dd was gorgeous and did so well at the service. It was beautiful, there were 10 of them and they all had readings. Dd brought the gifts up too. Then the priest called them up one by one to present them with a badge to wear to mass and a rose bush. After that they all stood at the alter with him for the whole communion rite, they came down to their families to give the sign of the peace and went back up to him. When it was time for communion they came down one by one and brought their families up and received communion with their whole family (or blessing in the case of my non catholic father and two younger children)

Then tea and cake in the village hall hosted by last years communion parents where we presented the priest and their teacher with cards and flowers.

After that we went to dds best friends house for their joint party, they had a blast. Weather was a bit miserable but the kids didn't seem bothered. We're just home now, the party is probably going to go on til the wee hours but our kids were exhausted and cranky so with that and dp obviously struggling to maintain his happy face we called it a day.

Dd was gorgeous, I'll post a pic tomorrow, too wrecked to haul the laptop out now.

And for those who remember... The traveller family was every bit as entertaining as we'd hoped wink Think gypsy weddings and you have it. Hummer, mahoosive dress, giant tiara, fake tan, hours of photography, skirt so big the child couldn't sit down, make up, crystal studded everything. grin
