Shower the people you love with love...

Sunday afternoon we had a beautiful day to drive to Louisville after church for a baby shower to celebrate the upcoming arrival of Andrew and Darci's little girl. The shower was at the home of Shelly Leach, with help from Shelly's mother-in-law Nancy, and of course lots of help from Abbi and Makenna. It was a fun afternoon for the girls, while the guys spent the time at BBC watching football. (The girls kept an eye on the football as well, but we are, after all, much better at multi-tasking than the guys.)

Aunt Betsy and Clara are ready to start the party.

Darci displays a beautiful quilt for the baby. Love that pink! Speaking of baby.... we played a game where you were not to say "baby", and if caught, had to give up your pacifier necklace to the one who caught you. Darci's friend Morgan was the winner of that one. It was a challenge!

Darci models her nursing shawl while Makenna watches.

Of course, baby girls need Purdue gear. I'm sure she will be saying "Boiler Up" in no time.

Hats from Nana who is still sporting her pink cast and decided not to make the trip to Louisville. Nana always likes for the baby to have a hat on. Haleigh will be looking cute in these.

Abbi and Makenna show off the ice cream cake. Delicious. The other game we played was one where we were to identify baby food in jars with labels removed. It was pretty tough, and as predicted, Molly was the winner of that one. She has had the most recent experience with baby food. Thankfully, we weren't asked to taste it. :)

The Robison girls. Clara, Molly, Leslie, Darci, and Betsy. Just missing Leigh since it was a little too far for her to come from California.

Aunt Fer helps Darci show off her belly.

We had a fun day enjoying the company and helping Darci get ready for the arrival of baby Haleigh. We ask God's blessing on Andrew and Darci as they prepare to welcome a new little one to their family. Carol gave me a framed print when Adam was born that says, "Each time the world needs an extra touch of love God creates a little baby." I know I am anxious to have one more person to love.
