Yesterday was my daughter Phoebe’s first communion at St. Philip Parish in Crafton. What a joy it was to see her with her hair done and all dressed up in her gown.

She was so excited for the special occasion, and we had a wonderful time with friends and family at our home afterwards.

I’m posting a few photos so that people don’t think that it’s a case of the shoemaker’s children going barefoot here at the Appel household in regards to photography.
