Good Saturday Morning! And happy almost end of April. I’m not trying to rush April out the door or anything, but come May my little guy will be tested to make sure he’s ready to receive his First Holy Communion the beginning of June and then Confirmed a week after that! We’ve been hard at work memorizing our Catechism questions, prayers and being able to explain what we’re memorizing. I wish I had the mind of a youngster. He’s an absolute sponge! Here he is reciting a small portion of our scripture memorization, 1 Corinthians 1-13; he has up to verse 4 memorized.
Let me share with you some of the goodies over at Catholic Child I have my eye on for gifts and party decorations. And through Monday the 27th of April 2015 they are offering FREE Shipping for orders over $40 with the coupon code #199042.
First, every room in the house should have a crucifix. If your child’s room does not have one yet, a crucifix would make a perfect gift for their First Holy Communion or Confirmation. This will be a life long gift, something they can take with them to college, their first apartment and home.
My son Luke still has his First communion Banner hanging above his bed from when he received his First Holy Communion a couple of years ago. Not only are these banners a lovely gift, they are customizable and a fun craft to make with your First Communicant.
If you have been visiting me here at The Littlest Way for any length of time (and my other blog before this one) you know I am a HUGE fan of the Glory Stories…HUGE. My children and I love them. They are perfect for car trips, waiting in the car, and listening to at lunch time.
Head over to Catholic Child and check out their selection of Party Trimmings for your sacramental celebration. You’ll be able to find all you need, gifts and trimmings over there. Let them know you’re visiting from The Littlest Way.
