“For you formed my inward parts; you knitted me together in my mother’s womb”
The arrival of our granddaughter is becoming more real to us everyday…and Sunday afternoon was one of those days! The sweetest and most beautiful baby shower was hosted by precious ladies that are all so dear to me! They planned every detail with Allison in mind, and for it to be a time of celebration of the gift of life that He has entrusted to Seth and her! The party began as we thanked God for his goodness and praised Him for our time together as friends and family. Next came the food…oh my! The menu was packed with Allie’s favorite sweets…and everything was so delicious! The hostesses put together a headband station that the guests thoroughly enjoyed, as well as a candy buffet complete with Allison’s favorites as a take home treat! Then after much laughter and fellowship, it was time to open all the gifts! They were showered with so much…lots of pretty and frilly outfits along with the necessities that come with a baby girl! And be sure to read the whole post so you will see our sweet surprise ending!
We are so very grateful that God, in his goodness, is knitting together a little life in Allison’s womb. We look to Him as the Giver of all, and we know He is the one who holds it all together. The day was perfect and “Oh So Sweet!”

I am so excited about becoming a grandmother!
Our gracious and lovely hostesses…they made this day absolutely beautiful!
As a surprise, the fathers were invited to join us for the prayer time at the end. Seth, Butch, and Bill (Allison’s dad…seen a few pics down) hung out in the back room while Allison opened her gifts! What a precious time…and a memory I will never forget!
From the moment I shared nursery inspiration to asking for your help with a grandmother name, you have all been more than kind with your comments and suggestions! The nursery is almost finished (be on the look out), but I am still trying to decide my grandmother name! This has been an exciting time in our lives and we thank you for sharing in this most joyous time with us!
