Krissy's Confirmation

My amazing cousin Kristyn celebrated her confirmation this weekend. I was blessed to be able to celebrate with her, since Tricia flew me out as Krissy's present! Thanks so much, Trish!!!

There's so much I can say about Krissy. She's been my favorite cousin since she was born and she's like my little sister. She's full of love, is so smart, makes me laugh, and often reminds me of myself when I was younger. It's amazing to see the beautiful young woman she has grown up to be...
Shrine to Krissy
 We had fun looking back at old photos while we picked out photos to add to her shrine.
These were my favorites, taken at her baptism.
 Now that adorable little baby is all grown up...

Us girls headed over to the church way early, we wanted to make sure we got better seats than last year. We thought we got to Mike's confirmation early, but apparently everyone was already there. How different this year was, people didn't get there as early. We did, so we had great seats... and plenty of time to take some pictures.

Evidence that Nate does enjoy a good church service. 
The confirmation service was great. Their pastors have such a great relationship with the kids and it shows! Nathan and I were loving every minute of it, Pastor kept cracking jokes throughout the service. My favorite was his comment about how they discussed women pastors during class. Turns out Krissy is more like me than I thought - she asked the question!! (You go, girl!)
It was so great to watch her confirm her faith,
I'm so glad I was there!
After church we went outside to take some pictures. First was the cousins, then Krissy with her aunts and uncles (the ones we could find), and then with the proud parents.
Since I was Tricia's special guest and hung out with her, Mimi, and Leanne all weekend while we cleaned and got ready for the party, I was supposed to help get the food ready for the guests. Well, Nate was ready to join in and do his part. Leanne hurried to her car to head out and Nate decided to make it a race. We speedwalked to the car, hurried in (with Nate almost shrieking at Mom to hurry up), and literally squealed the tires heading out of the church parking lot. I laughed so hard I almost cried! On his crazy drive home, while he tried to tell us that there was no way we'd see a cop and get pulled over for, he decided to start being super friendly. Every time a car drove by, he'd wave. Not like a normal person's slight wave, nope, like a crazy person's super hyper, almost shaking his hand off, fast wave.
Hilarious, that's all I have to say.
Back at the house, we had a fantastic dinner from Olive Garden. Boy, how I love that salad. (I even took home an extra bottle of the dressing to share with Amit, since he couldn't be there.) After dinner we had cake. Guess who was responsible for bringing it safely from the pool house to the kitchen? Me! Luckily the cake made it in once piece. It was delicious!
Such a cute cake!
A little cake cutting fun...
Krissy's confirmation day was so much fun! I'm so glad I was there to hang out and celebrate with her. Krissy - I'm so proud of you and love you so much! Congratulations on your confirmation!
