They say you can't pick your family, but I'm here to tell you that you can. You absolutely can pick your family, and boy have I picked the cream of the crop. Chris and I drove down from our nation's capitol to Knoxville in late June for my baby shower. This shower was given by 3 of the most amazing, generous, fantastic mothers I have the privilege of knowing. They are such close friends of my mom that I call them Aunt Kitty, Aunt Clyda and Aunt Becky and if I have my way so will Carragan.
A bright Sunday afternoon brought us to the home of my Aunt Kitty who had placed a wonderful and scrumptious display of food on her dining room table- a food table fit for a queen! There were fruit skewers, a wonderful chicken and rice casserole- need to get the recipe for that one, bread and so many yummies I can't even name them all. My three wonderful hostesses had it all together and thought of everything, it was an elegant shower thrown by some of my very favorite people. It was a wonderful day- I was able to see people that I haven't seen in quite a while and get to spend some time with each one of them. That's really what meant so much to me- was the ability to spend time with my family in such a wonderful, beautiful setting.
I hope you enjoy some of the pictures that Chris took, yes Chris. He was in attendance. I think it was a nice time for him to see those family members too. I'd also like to say thank you to Carla (Chris' mom) for making the trek out to Knoxville for my baby shower. Without further ado. . ..
