Christmas at Eddie's 2018

Every year we have a tradition of going to Eddie's to look at all their Christmas trees. 
This year we went much later than normal with our trip to Texas and wedding preparations. 
But we did end up making and it was as lovely as usual!

A new dog for Thanksgiving!

At Thanksgiving we had a surprise that we totally DID NOT PLAN ON! We were given a new puppy. Reggie joined the family on the day before Thanksgiving.  
We did not intend to have another pup... but it just worked out that way and he is a fun little guy.
Eli went to a ham shoot on Thanksgiving morning and did so well he won a ham! We were so excited! Ham for Christmas! Hooray!
Reggie and Muck... 
Look how adorable.

Houston and Cameo's Shower

Back in November, we began to "shower" the engaged couple. We had a lovely shower at church with friends and family. 
The food was fantastic and the bounty of gifts were all thoughtful and loving. 

My precious girls. 

Traditions were held to as they kept the ribbons from each present so that I could make her a bouquet to use during rehearsal. 
Another old wives tale was that however many ribbons you cut or broke during the opening of gifts was how many children you would have one day. Isn't it funny how these things got started? 

My sister has a baking business and she made the cupcakes for the shower. They were SO good. Per Cameo's request, pumpkin spice with cream cheese icing. 

And of course, banana punch! YUM!

A picture of four of my all time favorites! 

A GORGEOUS handmade quilt! 

A blanket that I made for them. The yarn was so cozy and snuggly.

Coffee table and end tables hid under the sheets from Papaw. They were just what she wanted! 

Carlie gave them a letter board. It was so sweet. 

It was a grand day and a wonderful shower. Thanks to so many who helped make it special!
