On Saturday, we celebrated some Spring Babies on the way. First, Linds and I went to a shower for our sweet friend Reid and Baby Lane on the way. Then yesterday afternoon, we had a time of "Blessing' for Lindsay's Sawyer-boy. All of Lindsay and Daniel's close family women gathered to pray over Linds with blessings, offer advice and well wishes, indulge in desserts, and shower her with gifts.
This picture is a sampling of the gifts she and Sawyer recieved.
We had her party at my Grandmama Holt's house. She made Lindsay's favorite dessert, pound cake. We served it with a chocolate sauce and strawberries and/or a lemon sauce and blueberries. It was soooo delicious. My grandmother is a Master Gardner, so the flowers she displayed were beautiful. She is also the quintessential hostess--just look at all of her silver and crystal serving pieces--and really enjoyed hosting this for Linds.
A close up of some of Sawyer's personalized goodies. Mom gave her the lovey and bib in the middle; the bib goes with the "coming home" outfit that she got him. The burp cloth and bib on the edges were from me. :)
This is an outfit that Daniel's grandmother made him. I thought it was so adorable.
The white and navy smocked outfits in the middle were outfits that Daniel wore as a little boy--also made by his grandmother. His mom brought a box full of his old clothes, and our favorite items in that box were the cowboy boots he wore as a little boy. Adorable. (Btw, the yellow and blue Polo romper on the edge was also from me. :))
This is a shot of the women in my family who were able to come. Mom, Grandmama Dean, me, Linds, Aunt J (Mom's sis), Grandmama Holt, and Cousin Loren.
Meanwhile, at home, Addybelle was enjoying a Daddy-Daughter day. In this pose, she is proudly donning her new hat. They had a ball, and I was able to join them for an afternoon at the park. It was a beautiful Saturday.
