Adam: Confirmation

On Sunday May 1st Adam was Confirmed.  Church was at nine AM so we got up before O dark thirty to make it up north for church.  We could have gone the day before but we like our own sleeping spots.

It was a lovely frosty morning for a long drive.

Adam’s Confirmation Class had three boys and one girl.  Afterward we went to his home for brunch.

Jen made several different egg bakes, cinnamon rolls, and homemade mints.  I think Andy wanted some meat with his meat so there were smokies surrounded by bacon that was just yummy!  I smiled when I saw the skewers of powdered sugar donut holes…knowing that was Adam’s request…he loves donuts.  There was a wonderful punch described as Orange on orange sherbet with something fizzy…it was perfect.  Oh and fruit…how could I forget the fruit…everything I was allergic to was in one bowl and every fruit I am not allergic to in another!  Our daughter is very thoughtful….guess she wants me to live yet another day!

It was a beautiful sunny day. It was good to visit with everyone. Richard, Trica, Savannah, Madison and Paige were there. Trica our oldest daughter was Adam’s Godmother at his baptism 14 years and 8 months ago.

  1. Congratulations to Adam. I am so very happy for him, his family and for you. That is such a special day. I remember my confirmation - there were 43 confirmands in my class (I went to a parochial school).

  3. Look how tall Adam is beside your mom and dad! Would you tell us again how tall Adam and Noah are? You do have a nice family! Your talk about all the fruit you are allergic to being in one bowl made me laugh. That was thoughtful of Jen.

  4. How wonderful! What a lovely family you have. Do your parents live up North too or did they travel with you? Those boys are tall. Congratulations to Adam and to all who supported and guided him all these years. It takes a village!

    1. My Parents live just 14 miles from us. We had Chance with us so my parents drove seperately:)

  5. Those boys have become very handsome young men! Isn't it a blessing to live close enough to take part in such important events/milestones in their lives!!!

  7. Congratulations to Adam. I am amazed as to how fast they both have grown up. Having had two boys I can identify with the life that Jen and Andy lead. I missed those days some days and other days I am happy as to where I am. Raising them to be strong good men and living independently and successfully is the goal.

  10. It's easy to see who the boys inherited their height from! How lucky you are to have so many generations of your family alive and close enough for get togethers. Your parents may be great greats before too long!

  15. Congratulations to Adam. How wonderful that he has great-grandparents still in his life! I'm guessing your thoughtful daughter wants you around for a while, too.

  16. Lovely that Adam could be surrounded by his family on such a meaningful day. I'm not fond of do-nuts but I'm glad he got what he wanted!

  17. You do have a wonderful family, and so many of them nearby. What a lovely celebration.

  18. Sure brings back memories of my confirmation and my brothers. Oh those spring rituals and I HATED memorizing all that stuff and having to recite it (testing has never been my strong suit). I recently asked my Mom what her confirmation verse was - she popped it right off with no problem - I can't say the same for me!
