Emily’s baby shower was wonderful! It didn’t seem like an overwhelming crowd, but she sure got an overwhelming bunch of gifts! God is providing for this baby through the love of many friends! Dan didn’t start taking pictures until my Sis Bettye, Jessica, and Jacey had already left, so I don’t have any of them. I didn’t upload all the pics of the many friends and family who were there, but here’s a few.
The Hostesses asked everyone to bring a children’s book with their gift, and so many responded. This is one of my favorites – “I’ll Love You Forever”. Em was telling us that she wasn’t going to read this one right now because it always makes her cry…..
…Tab didn’t believe her, but after she read it, she said, “Yep, it got me!” We thank everyone for coming, and missed those who couldn’t come.
As many of you know, Tuesdays are Mamaw’s and Granddad’s Day. Dan, Gen, Kunk, Missy, Rug, Parker, & most always Bub and Emily all descend upon Mamaw and Granddad, and we do whatever work needs doing, play and talk (alot of talking goes on at any Allen gathering!), and we eat (a given). I come as soon as I get off work, usually just in time for lunch!
Well, this past Tuesday we all decided to go to Washington on the Brazos and to the Blue Bell Creamery. I actually didn’t get to go, since I had to work. But it was a good thought, and they had so much fun. I think Mamaw and Granddad were VERY tired by the end of the day, but still had a great time. Anyway, here’s some pics, and I hope you enjoy them.
Ruge, James, and John in front of the Blue Bell Creamery truck. As you can see, Ruge wasn’t real happy at this point!
Now it’s Missy’s turn. Isn’t she cute?
Bub and Em forbearing with the photographer!
Even Mamaw had a turn! They got a sample of icecream, and everything!
Nathanael getting in some practice. Parker had a rough day – oh the perils of diaper rash!
Now they are at Washington on the Brazos. Gen and James and John enjoying a picnic lunch.
Em didn’t slide – she rested!
My wonderful Daddy.
I’ll bet none of you knew that my sweet Daughter in Law has some latent rebellion in her!
Well, that’s all folks. I’m late leaving work trying to get this all on here. Have a blessed day!
