Kate's Arkansas Shower

Kate's 2nd baby shower was held in Arkansas at her "Tutu's" church - First United Methodist Church of Monticello, on July 31st.

It was a beautiful event that just happened to be all pink and aqua - the colors we're decorating Kate's room with! Now you know you are loved when you have more than a dozen "hostesses" at your shower! (Only 8 are shown below, but there were more than 12!) These ladies put together a lovely event, and they all went in together to get us a top of the line carseat to keep Kate safe! We were thrilled to have that item checked off our list. Thank you ladies!

Kate's "Tutu" (Rusty's mom) has waited a long time to be a grandmother, and I know this shower was really special to her too! She has the sweetest friends and church family, and I had a wonderful time with them! There was lots of laughter and overflowing JOY at this shower (as you can see from these photos!)

At this shower Kate got her very first CareBear (and as an 80's kid, I loved that!), lots of cute clothes, games, and books, and some really special items all the way from Alaska from Rusty's mom. She even got a "moose-keteer" shirt to match Rusty's mom's group shirts from their trip! So cute!

At the end of the day we had so many gifts that Rusty had to come to the church to help us pack them up! We drove back to Alabama with our car overflowing with gifts, and our hearts overflowing with love and gratitude. Thank you to each and every part of our Arkansas "family" who made this shower so special! We look forward to visiting and introducing Kate to you someday soon!
