Christmas Eve

Merry Christmas Eve! We have so much to be appreciative and thankful for this Christmas. I fell asleep as I prayed last night, thanking God so much for the miracle He brought into our lives. Just like everyone says - I have no idea how we got along without her all this time. Now that she is here, I could never be without her in life.

Tonight will be Riley's very first big outing. We're going to take her to Christmas Eve services as St John Vianney's church at 6pm. The church is literally right around the corner, so the travel time will be under two minutes. Kevin's parents and his sister's family will be there as well. While we don't attend the Catholic church, it is tradition for us to go there each year on Christmas Eve with his family and we wanted this year to be no exception.

In preparation for the big evening ahead, Riley and I had a fashion show for daddy this morning in an attempt to decide which outfit to debut. Thanks to my dear friend Kim for the gorgeous Baby Gap dresses!! One outift will be for tonight, one for Christmas dinner at Kevin's parent's tomorrow night, and one for this weekend when my parents (hopefully) come to visit. One thing is for sure - she is one beautiful baby!

Merry Christmas Eve, all! Remember the reason for the season - Jesus' birth - in all that you do!

2 hugs and kisses:
