The Angel on the Christmas Tree

The first grade classes at Riley's school had a Christmas program last week and Riley's class sang O' Christmas Tree.  Riley had the part of the angel on top of the Christmas tree.  I thought that was very fitting considering girls with Rett Syndrome are often referred to as "silent angels".

Some of the kids took turn placing presents around Riley.

After the performance we went to congratulate her.  The little blue thing sticking out of her pocket is headphones.  She listens to music while waiting her turn.  Makes her much more patient I'm sure!

Riley always has a smile for daddy!

Christmas Parade

Saturday we took the kids and a couple of Addy's friends to see the Madison Christmas Parade.  Hard to believe Christmas is almost here!

Lucas watched intently

 Riley didn't seem too excited to be there but later that day we realized she was coming down with yet another cold.  Sigh.

Lucas won't sit still for anything!

It was another beautiful day in Mississippi!  Now we better start Christmas shopping!!
