Riley's First Communion

Oh what a wonderful day! Riley was so excited to receive her First communion. What I love is watching her recieve each Sunday at mass now that she has. I love the way they taught her to be so respectful and reverent.

We got to borrow this beautiful dress from Riley's cousin Clare. It was simple, classy and beautiful! We are so grateful!

Each child and family had to make a banner together. There are pre made kits you can buy online, or you could make your own. We chose to make our own. We got most of the ideas for our banner from Clare (the cousin we borrowed the dress from). I made a dove and chalice one night when Riley went to bed. When she woke up she was mad that I did it without her. It was supposed to be done together. This really picky momma had a hard time following that rule! She made her own dove and chalice that day. Then she chose to keep my dove and her chalice to actually put on the banner. She said my dove was better. I think we had a fair amount of team work. We are so pleased with how it came out. It is still hanging on the inside of our front door.

Mae Mae surprised us by making Riley's cake look just like her banner. Great job Mae Mae! We were surprised and we loved it!
