Babies, babies everywhere!

I've been attempting to write this for two days, so I'm not getting up until it is finished......I hope.

Saturday, Russell, Carol and I went over to Pensacola to Katie's baby shower! We had a wonderful time but missed Katie's husband Beau who is on a ship defending us....thanks Beau!

I've had a strange time downloading pictures, so these are really in no particular order.

First, our host Grady met us at the door. He had been working all day to get things ready so we could party! Is he the cutest little boy? His mama, Katie's sister, and daddy actually hosted the shower! Katie is living with Mikey and Mary Grace, Grady and Ellie (the dog child), along with Katie and Beau's two dogs Belle and Lilly.

Lots of Katie's friends came from all over. Here's Katie with Katie and Christie.

Here's Katie and Mary Grace's brother, Brian and his wife Robin who just found out they are having TWINS!!!! Everybody is so excited for them!!!

Mary Grace with Grady and Elaine, Mikey's mama.

AWW! This is so sweet. This welcome mat is in front of Katie's room. For now it is her home, but before you know it, she'll be living in California and her family will be together.

Beau's Aunt Cindy sent flowers to Mary Grace, aren't they beautiful!?? They were the centerpiece of the food table.

> Sister Emily couldn't come from Austin, but she made these darling cookies and sent for the shower. They are delicious cookies in the shapes of baby bottles, onesies and baby carriages. I'm ashamed to say, I was so busy cramming them down my throat eating them that I didn't notice the monogram on the baby carriages! They were so cute and good, Emily, and we MISSED you so much!!!

Here's Robin and the twins!
Mary Grace and Roxanne, who is ALSO pregnant, fixing all the goodies for us to EAT! I did mention there were babies everywhere?

Here's Carol with Katie.

Anna Cross got lots of presents! She is a very blessed little girl already!

Katie's dad, Tony and his wife Charlotte. They are getting lots of grandchildren at one time!

Here's Katie with Charlotte and Marie, Beau's mother.

The mama! Isn't she beautiful?!

Lloyd and Marie.

The food table. Looks good huh??

And here's host Mikey outside in the heat and humidity cooking. He's very good natured, can't you tell? The humidity was extremely had been raining all morning, but the sun broke out during the shower! Mikey never complained though, he just cooked lots of good stuff!

Mary Grace, Roxanne and Grady.

Russell and Tony talking.....probably solving the problems of the world.....well, at least I HOPE so.

We are all anxiously awaiting the birth of Anna Cross. It looks like she's going to have lots of cousins to play with. It was a great day and I'm so glad we could be there to enjoy with them!

TWINS!! What joy. Double blessed. My son and DIL had twin boys on Nov 20,2008. They are a real joy. God bless the new Mom and Dad.
Read on my blog about the Nap Nanny. It may be helpful to them at some point. They are a life saver to us!!!
