Tested by Fire Fest at St. John's Indy

“Beloved, do not be surprised that a trial by fire is occurring among you… But rejoice to the extent that you share in the sufferings of Christ, so that when his glory is revealed you may also rejoice exultantly.” -1 Peter 4: 12-13

Last weekend, St. John's in downtown Indianapolis, the oldest parish in Indy, and where Bill and I got married two years ago ;), hosted a fundraiser to raise money for renovations from an arson fire set to the church back in February (so sad).  Much of the back of the church was affected and so having a festival with music, food, and drinks was a great way not only to raise money, but to also have fun and celebrate the spirit of the parish, rather than focus on the structural damage.  Dad, Katie, the Sahm boys, and Addie and I all went down to enjoy the festivities!  I got some great pics, too!

Addie and Zeke's first sucker - Grandpa gave it to them so what can you do?! 

Addie Jo and Katie watching the wonderful Catholic band, L'Angelus, jam out on Georgia Street.  The four oldest siblings make up the band and they come from a family of ten kids!  They performed at World Youth Day in Barcelona and are just awesome:

Loving L'Angelus!

Taking in the music

Dance break to enjoy the sucker! 

AJ in heaven with fabulous music and sugar! 

A little bit of corn hole on the way out, too


  1. Great pics of a great time, Sarah! What a cutie!

  2. That looks like such fun! Oh man, Xander got his first lollipop when I gave him his first hair cut and now he asks for "pops" all the time. We got cornhole as a Christmas gift from Phil's sister. One board says Patriots and the other says Redskins :)

  3. So cute!! I love your dad :), what a great grampa.

    Addie is the cutest thing ever!


Gracias for saying Hola!
