Riley’s 1st Communtion

Today Riley had her 1st Communion at our church.  She’s been looking forward to this day since Ari had her 1st Communion last year 😉  She was so excited and happy!  Auntie Jacquie took her shopping a couple weeks beforehand to buy her a communion dress.  She looked so pretty and grown up in her dress.  All our family came to see her on her special day!

Here she is before church started with some pretty flowers that were in the church

Here she is with her teacher Mrs. Betty Jo who she loved as a teacher =)

We couldn’t really take any picture during church because it was a regular mass.  But here are more pictures taken after the mass ended.

After mass everyone came over to our house to have lunch and celebrate with Riley.  And since it was a nice day the kids also decided to go swimming!  Here is Riley with the cake that her and I made.  And she decorated it =)
