Welcome at The Table!


It is Our Prayer
On this most Blessed Day,
That Your Heart a Tabernacle Be,
Not for a day or two or three
But for Eternity!
May Jesus Keep You Always
in His Close Embrace!


May the blessing of the Lord's Supper
help you to live as a child of God.


A Church Family


Father S., Bud & Godfather, Uncle Ikey


Bud chose a cake to celebrate on his 1st Holy Communion day. First, he said he would like a chocolate cake. Then, he said, "Wait. Ummm, well, what are my other options?" I ran through the general options of Chocolate, Yellow, White, Lemon, Strawberry, Swirl, etc... He said, finally - after a bit of thought - "Lemon. I would like four layers. White frosting and a jam kind of filling." WOW! Well, that is a far bit from chocolate cake!! So, there is a (two) layer lemon cake with cream cheese frosting and a spread of raspberry jam between the frosting and cake in the middle. It is topped with a raspberry jam cross and after the picture he said, "Mom, you forgot the raspberry jam 'dots' around the edge." So, I put some jam in a plastic baggie, trimmed the corner and piped some dots around the edge. I have to say that the cake was QUITE delicious! It was cool and refreshing - much like a raspberry lemonade!!

It had gotten quite late... it was after 10 by the time the cake was brought out! (Mass at 5, a small reception after, home around 7:30, eating supper at or after 8, playing hard outside in the great weather... the time just slipped away!) So, you can see a bit of tired in the eyes of these kids! And where is the other cousin who came to visit!?!?


He did not quite make it to cake time! He sat down on the couch and fell asleep!!! No cake for YOU!

Staying up late... making cinnamon rolls for the morning! Have to wait for the dough to rise, then I'll roll them out and have them ready to pop in the oven in the morning. If you're hoping to have one - you'll have to be fast with this house full of people!


  1. Congratulations to Bud on his very special day! He looks so handsome!

    Share the recipe for the cake - it sounds delicious!

  2. I didn't know Bud was getting his First Communion!!! What a horrible friend I am! I am so HAPPY for him!!! He looked so dapper too!
    Gosh, all these kids of ours are growing up too fast.

  3. Happy First Communion, Bud!! Welcome to the table of God!

  4. How so very exciting! Congratulations to Bud and your entire family! :-)
