More Wedding Shower Fun

This past Saturday, 5 ladies at our church gave Katie a Bridal Shower.  My mom & sister & niece came from Atlanta, and Amy Kate (Andy's girlfriend) came from college.  It was great to have some family there for the occasion.  It was a beautiful afternoon for our "blushing bride".  Everyone was generous with their time, talents, & gifts.  Here are some pictures of our awesome afternoon.....

Katie was "showered" with some wonderful, practical, beautiful gifts.  Canisters, Rubbermaid containers, Pyrex dishes, monogramed towels, gift cards, plaques, money, bath & hand towels, a broom & dustpan, books, crockpot, Chick fil A calendars, crocheted dish cloths, griddle, 2 drawer stacking system for storage, laundry basket & hangers, and lots of love! (There were more gifts but I just can't remember right now).

My mom gave Katie a practical "just for her" gift of fabric, zipper, & thread for a new dress.  Along with that gift came a pair of Gingher dress maker shears (fabric only).  There were one or two other gifts for her personally with specific spending instructions ~ looks like a shopping trip is coming up.

It was a great day, spent with many women/girls who love my Katie Lynn and wanted to make her day special.  It was a blessing to me to see this love and all these folks coming to encourage my daughter.

Thanks everyone!

  1. Ah Donna, it really is fun for me to read these posts about Katie. I truly love brides! This is such a special time. I'm glad she has had another shower. I'm sure the gifts are such a help to her. It can be so hard to set up a whole household, especially in our economy. Besides, it is just plain fun to have a party!
