Holly's Shower

IT WAS AMAZING that almost everyone we invited to Holly's shower came!!!! It was so fun!  She is so loved and received so many wonderful and thoughtful gifts!!!  So many girls made things too!!!  Amy, Holly's sister, and I fretted over the blizzard that blew through yesterday.  It was great that the snow cleared so that we could go on with the show.  This has been a fun, cold and sad weekend.  Early Saturday morning Ryan's Grandad,  Dr. Elbert Overholt, passed away.  It was such a difficult time.  Then we got stuck at home with the blizzard that came through.  (Being snowed in yesterday was a great excuse for Ryan and I to watch "New Moon" in the basement!!!)  Now Ryan is packing to leave for Oman and I am sad again.  I didn't get pics of all the wonderful gifts since they were all packed up.  I was able to pull a few things out of sacks to snap a few shots.  Robin made an amazing journal, Jemelia made 4 cute bibs,  Lori made some adorable onsies (which I couldn't find to get a pic),  and Amy made corsages and I am not sure who all gave what else since I was jabbering away with everyone!


  1. Everything was so lovely, Shelley, and so good to see you, Holly, and the girls. Always fun to meet new people, too! So soooo great to get out and enjoyed my time with Robin, too! What a killing that mama made...great stuff!

    What's our next get together? lol

  2. Looks like you all had a wonderful time at Holly's shower. I know she loved all the food, gifts and friends.
    So sorry about Grandfather Overholt.
    See you soon.

  3. It was AMAZING, Shelley. I am speechless! Thank you so much. I am so grateful for the beautiful shower and all the sweet gifts. Oh wow, look at me in these photos. Gosh, your camera must be adding like 60 or 70 pounds, right?
