First Communion

On Sunday, Matthew took part in his First Holy Communion.

My little man all dressed up.

He was nervous, which we expected. What we didn't expect, was how excited he was.

Photos were not allowed during Mass. I am not sure I would have been able to take a photo of him receiving his first communion host, honestly, my eyes were brimmed with tears. It was a beautiful moment that will forever be in my heart. No photo could be more precious than that memory.

After Mass.

With Father Avi

We had a celebration at our house after with family and friends. Matthew got some wonderful gifts. I am still surprised that his favorite was ours. A leather book/case that holds a prayer book, rosary and a first communion pin. He has been reading it daily and working on praying the rosary.

Ryan is almost counting the days til his First Communion next year.
