Top Selling Baby Shower Favors and Supplies

My son just turned 6 years old last month and my daughter will turn 8  in a few month, time flies   I can still remember when I was opening gifts the we received from the baby shower that my sister-in-law threw for us.  We had  most of the things that we need including large items such as cribs, bedding,  clothes, and a lot more.  They also bought some unique baby shower favors for the guests they invited.  I was relatively new here in the US when they threw the baby shower so I did not know anybody but them.  I am so glad that I have an awesome family in-law.  

Finding unique baby shower favors is easier with ABC Favors website.  They have a huge selection of baby shower favors   I am sure that you will be able to find the one that you are looking for as they have a huge selection.  Of all their selection though, I think my favorite is this Vanilla Buttercream Whipped Hand Creme.  This would be great to hand out after the  party.  I am sure that your guest would smile every time they would use this as they would see the personalized stuff on the lid.

The Sacrament of Reconciliation

Last Monday was Ms. Burrito's first confession. She received the second sacrament of being a Catholic.  It is a very important sacrament as the kids learn how to ask for forgiveness.  We came very early to church so I had the chance to  take a picture of her in front of the altar while  there were still no people in the church.
We took our son with us even though he was not feeling very well because he wanted to see how is it done as he will be doing the same  in a couple of years.  There were two priests and one of them was the one who baptized both of our kids.  We let our daughter confessed to him.  After the confession, my husband  has accompanied  Ms. Burrito to different stations where teachers  gave them something that is relevant to the sacrament of reconciliation.  My husband taught it was a very special bonding as he got to pray with her silently.
They serve some snack and beverage after the confession.
Ms. Burrito receive a book of prayers, a candle, certificate and a necklace with a pendant that says "Forgiveness: Heals and Renews".
Here's the funny part, before the  reconciliation, we practiced her the whole process.  I acted as a priest.  After she recited the necessary  prayers, I asked her

Me:  What are you going to confess?
Ms. B.  That I  fight with my brother sometimes.
Me:  Doesn't it happen all the time?
Ms. B.  (Looked at me smiling and said).. Yeah, I guess.

We both laughed.

It was a  very beautiful experience both for the kids and parents.
