Christmas Eve Mass

This is Olivia's first year of CCD and unfortunately my first real interaction in Church also. I don't know what to do or say but I am trying to stumble my way through it for her. Luckily her Grandmothers know and Auntie is a CCD teacher. When we dropped her off I brought her in but did not know where to go. Finally we located an adult who asked if she was an angel-Um, she is 6 and in 1st grade-Yes then she is an angel-next room.
There we located her group and she was fitted with a white robe and golden halo and sash. I left her with the other angels so we could find a seat. I was a bit nervous about being there so early as Ava is typically a jumping bean but the place was filling up and I didn't want to be standing in the back. I could have cried as I caught this photo. She ended up being the first angel in line and i almost missed her she looked so little.

They all did a great job including this little trouble maker below. She bounced around from Gramma to Nana and complained when the bells got too loud but all in all she was terrific.
I was incredibly proud of Olivia too as I know how nervous she was in the last few days even saying all day Thursday that she wasn't doing it. Having no confidence myself, I am trying to make her follow through and then talking about how good is feels to accomplish something and what a good job she is doing.
She did this all on her own. I think she was praying that Santa forget how she acted all year-I am not sure but it was definitely worth a picture!!

you need that picture of Ava framed...take it out every now and then just before you kill her to remind you that there's a little angel in there with horns.
