A Beautiful Confirmation Day

Please allow me to share our beautiful niece
 (and also my God daughter)
on her very special Confirmation Day.

She asked me to be her sponsor. 
Of course I was touched and honored to accept!

This is beautiful Delaney on her special day.

Her Confirmation name is Cecelia.

Here is our red-head getting ready to go up to the altar
 for her turn to be Confirmed.

I hope this is a reflective Delaney and not a bored one, lol.

There were 187 candidates in this class!
We couldn't even fit them all in the pic!

This is about as happy as I can be- 
I love our faith and our oneness together.

Here's my dear sister and her beautiful family.
You can see such a strong family resemblance.

Tony on the left goes to college in August!

This is our sweet cheerleader - both in school
for football, and in competitive cheer.

I shared some of her cheer action shots here.
They're older pics - now she is travelling all over the country 
to competitions but I haven't been going.

Here is a recent INCREDIBLE solo stunt mini vid
showing her flying through the air as though it is easy!
(You won't be disappointed if you see it, I promise!)

We're proud of her on so many levels.

In the past couple weeks in our family we've had several birthdays,
an emergency birth, an out-of-town baby shower, a sad miscarriage, two Confirmations,
even double stress leg fractures, 
and of course wedding shower planning....


Delaney's sister Darien with double stress fractures
plays Varisty Lacross as a freshman-
or I should say DID before this happened.

I apologize for not being around much lately.

I REALLY want to be - and hopefully things will be settling down 
again very soon, as I love and miss Blogland!

I ask that you keep our family in your prayers.
We need them right now, and we believe in the 

As always, thank you for your visit.

God's Light shine upon each of you today and always.

  19. Hi Michel, what a lovely young woman and how special for you to be her sponsor.She certainly had a very large confirmation class! Such a memorable event in her life.

  20. Don't apologize for being AWOL -- I have been, too, and LIFE HAPPENS! Loved these wonderful confirmation photos and seeing you with your beautiful niece. Looks like she's ready to soar body, soul and spirit after seeing that video clip! And I'm saying a prayer right now for the one who lost a child … I hear that is one of the saddest griefs a woman has to bear. Sending love and prayers to Ohio! XOXO

  21. What a beautiful day you all had! She is such a pretty young lady. Have a great weekend! xxx Maria

  22. Hi Michelle, Oh what a beautiful girl Delaney is and many blessings to her on her confirmation. Such a special time. I know you are filled with joy. I remember when my son was confirmed and how special that day was. Love the video too. She is very talented. Great pictures of you two and what a beautiful family.
    Saying prayers for you.
    Hugs and Blessings, CM

  23. Wow...what a talented and beautiful young woman! I can totally understand why you are so proud of her! Beautiful photos of you and your family. I had to smile, although stress fractures are not funny in any way when I saw the photo o Darien. Usually anyone who has to wear those ugly boots, only need least she had a matching set and looks absolutely adorable in them. I realize this was several months ago...I hope all is healed well by now.


Thank you, friend, for taking the time to comment! I read each and every one of them. Your thoughts are appreciated!
